Low Quality Images, Poor Battery Life, Expensive,
This review is from: JVC Picsio GC-WP10 Waterproof Pocket Video Camera (Blue) NEWEST VERSION (Electronics)
There just wasn't anything in this offering from JVC that made us (or anyone we gave it to) actually want the PICSIO GC-WP10. The operating system makes the touch interface sluggish, unresponsive at times and unintuitive to use. If you are using to your iPhone, iPod Touch or Android device by now, going to this device to take pictures or video will be a step back.
As for the optics and resulting video or pictures (regardless of the resolution - 1080p, 720p or otherwise), they looked on par with a totally average cell phone camera. We have seen higher quality (albeit lower resolution) video come out of our iPhone 4s or Android 2.2-enabled smart phones. We have certainly seen better images come out of our digital cameras with HD video recording support.
Given that the JVC PICSIO GC-WP10 is only waterproof to 10 feet and is currently retailing for $180, we strongly recommend you either look at buying a waterproof digital camera for the same money, or if you have a very nice point-and-shoot like the Canon S95, using that money to buy a waterproof housing for that camera to get superior quality pictures and video instead.
