After reading the specs I had high hopes for this camera. Unfortunately, it failed to perform in every way. The build quality was cheap and flimsy, the controls were awkward and counterintuitive, the video was unwatchable, and the stills weren't sharp. Thankfully, Amazon accepted my return.

First, the PROS:
--It is small.

Then, the CONS:
--The control buttons are recessed and difficult to press. Usually I would have to press a button several times before it actually worked. When in still camera mode there is no audio or visual confirmation that you have actually taken a photo so you never know for sure until you scan through the images and video saved.
--The video is violently shakey and not as sharp as 1080p should be. Even on a tripod the video shook and wobbled. Basically the video is unwatchable. Everything looks like "Blair Witch Project" outtakes.
--Video and stills are grainy in any light, indoors or out. Don't bother trying to use it in low light.
--The audio is average.

In short, a very disappointing product that has turned me off to the compact video camera segment.

First: I really didn't expect the device to perform miracles and my expectations were set low given the price. It does what it's supposed to do. It does shoot higher quality video in better lighting. I was able to upload the videos easily and the still shots were decent. It is however better quality than a smart phone such as my blackberry storm. I wanted a dedicated device that would capture better than the blackberry and it did just that.

Second: I noticed very very poor quality on my laptop running vista which would only play through quicktime. The videos looked like crap. I connected the device to my desktop computer running windows 7 which is setup to display on my 42 inch 1080p TV and was very impressed with the video running through Window Media Manager/player. I also uploaded a my own video to Youtube and was again impressed with the quality. I firmly believe that the output quality has everything to do with the how your receiving device handles the videos.

PS3 does not support the device's captured format. Therefore you will need to convert the videos using a free converter downloaded from CNET.com

Conclusion Good affordable functional video camera that is highly portable and low maintenance.

I tried several similar gadgets and JVC PICSIO is one of them. Despite good overall design, there several problems that turned me off.
CONS:
- good overall designe
- low cost

CONS:
- poor of image stabilization: practically absent
- poor HD quality: image "wobbling"
- not posible to use indoors: grainy picture; inaccurate colors; etc.

I returned my JVC PICSIO back to the store. Do not recommend anyone to buy this model.

The User Guide's states:
"When the battery life is too low even if it is in full charge, the battery comes to the end of its life"
This statement should be rewritten:
"When the battery life is too low even if it is in full charge, the CAMCORDER comes to the end of its life"
The battery is internal meaning that you can't replace it when it begins to have trouble holding a charge (as they all eventually do).
So the question is: What is the life expectancy of the battery?
I have posted this question on the JVC site forum but, of course, never got published. They also removed another post somebody made to this forum in this regard.
Stay away from it..

It only records for 29 minutes at a time. This makes no sense. What a waste of money.

I love this camera despite what I have read about in my researching for a pocket cam. This model comes in three colors; Black, Blue & Purple. It has 1080p HD video, DIS for the video, internal 128MB memory, SDHC card slot, Rechargeable Li-on battery & 8 MP stills which is great of not having to carry two different cameras for great video and great stills. I use it every where I go & it is perfect for me to get my kids in their football games. Being able to take it right out of my purse and get recording right away is a snap. Having 128MB of internal memory & a card slot to expand the memory is great so when the games go into OT I have enough space to continue thru. I would recommend a 4GB memory card or higher for lots of storage space. I am not a techy person and the simplicity of camera is perfect for me of not having to figure out all those menus. All you have to do is push the buttons and the camera will do what it is to do. You have a power button, video/camera mode, a review, trash can, index & the center button is for record mode/snap a picture. You even get a 4x digital zoom by pushing the up & down buttons for when you need to get a little bit closer. I just love taking my videos & sharing them online to You Tube so my mother back east can see the boys in their games right away. Even when they have night games you can still see the video very clear & steady just like in a traditional camcorder. I used to make DVD's which takes me forever to figure out the software & takes time mailing it over. If it will even reach over the mail in one piece. I can't begin to tell you how many times the DVD disc was broken on delivery to then make it all over again. Now the moment is lost and forgotten.Read more ›
