Nifty little camera. I've played with it for two days.
The Pros:
1. Really decent performance in low light/ indoors/ darker environments.
2. Image stabilization that other pocket video cameras don't have.
3. Really, really fun time-lapse function at 3 different speed settings.
4. Very innovative software for editing stored internally in camera memory. Lots of novel effects.
5. Ability to shoot multiple still photographs in succession by simply pressing down and holding shutter button. Decent quality.

The Cons:
1. AC adapter is optional and I can't find out where I can purchase one. Essential for time-lapse photography at the longest/ slowest setting. I fully charged the battery and only captured 2 full seconds of time-lapse footage over an hour before the battery was fully drained. Not sure about battery performance when shooting in standard mode.
2. Sound on this model is recorded in mono, NOT stereo. If I knew this in advance of purchase, I would have purchased the water-proof model (JVC Picsio GC-WP10), which not only captures audio in stereo, but also records audio mp3 files. The perfect combination to smuggle into your favorite concert.
Overall, pleased. Better video quality than my Vadio. More features. Nice touch screen.

Color Name: Yellow Verified Purchase
This product is sold as a pocket camcorder, but don't plan on actually using it for too long before you risk cracking the screen. I put a lot of research into the decision to buy this model, I liked it right out of the box so I invested in a few memory cards and a thick neoprene carry case to keep it well protected.

I pulled it out of the case this past weekend to film my daughter's race and was completely shocked to see a slight crack down the entire center of the 3" screen. Since this is a touch screen, I could not work around the crack, the recording button was working only randomly. I was hoping it was just a cosmetic problem that I could live with, but unfortunately it will not function properly and most of the menu buttons do not work at all.

What I have learned is that this PICSIO FM2 is ridiculously flimsy and more fragile than any personal GPS or phone I have ever owned. I have invested in many electronic devices over my 45+ years and I treat them with care and respect. There was no dropping, impact, neglect or abuse of any kind to this product - I realize accidents can happen and I would not feel this upset if I thought I caused the crack in any way, but not in this case. I researched the replacement touch screen on JVC's site and the cost for the part alone is nearly 1/2 of the camera itself ($76 plus shipping for just the screen!).

I spent nearly 30 minutes on the phone with JVC Customer Support today and received no consideration or satisfaction whatsoever. I realize a broken screen falls into instant 'NO WARRANTY' category so I asked JVC if they could at least extend me some sort of courtesy discount to purchase the part and that was very quickly rejected.

Overall, a good handheld camera that does what it is intended for, takes relatively close-range, controlled-environment footage. If you are out and about and want to film your immediate environment, I like the size, quality, function, and screen. But if you are in a new place and are trying to capture it all - far away, different lighting situations, etc. - make sure you have another camera on you.

I bought this at a great price and found that I take it with me wherever I go. Takes nice HD video. Plugs in to a tv via hdmi mini cable (optional) and the videos look great. Easy to hold and the audio isnt too bad. Has lots of useful features.

I bought this for my wife as a gift. The camera takes decent pictures, but the software that came with it is downright awful. Not at all intuitive and very difficult to figure out how to save and edit photos. Don't waste your money.

The video quality is fine, not great, without zoom in. The video is grainy when zoom in. The picture quality is worse than a cellphone. I think it's just OK for the low price that I paid for after rebate.

Its fun to use but the upload time to sites like youtube is soooo long. Not the cameras fault but it certainly takes some of the usefulness away. The touch screen sucks ass and I have no clue why every manufacturer seems to be going this route. Sound quality is iffy as well. Im pretty sure this was a consumer reports best buy too.

Color Name: Black
This camera is just not worth the money. The image quality is poor at best if you zoom in it is grainy. The sound is in mono which is fine but should be noted somewhere in the product description. The camera just feels cheaply made and the side door feels as if it is going to break off anytime you open it. The USB is a push and slide but also feels cheap and like it will break after some use. You would be better off paying the extra money for a flip camera ... I did and I am much happier.
