I recently noticed that true HD was making its way to the pocket video camera market. There were two others that came out very recently that I was looking at (a Panasonic and a Kodak) before I decided on this JVC. The deciding factor was that this one is waterproof and is capable of time lapse.

Upon what must have been a delayed release, I finally got mine today and must say I am glad I went with this one. There's a little weight to it as you hold it in your hand and cosmetically, well with all the ugly gadgets out there I have to give the designers at JVC props for making this an attractive, even sexy unit, one that I would not be ashamed to take home to Mother. I want to call this a matte finish or something... look at the high res pics and you'll see what I mean.

The quality of the video is as good as you would expect. I am hoping that future software updates will be more feature rich. You can record audio but there don't seem to be any options or settings with regard to the quality. I'm assuming it's recording in mp3 format and if it is, I'd prefer to be able to select the bit rate (320kbps). The time lapse feature is cool and I'd love to see the ability to shoot at a very high frame rate so as to be able to capture a water balloon popping. Overall, the user interface is simple and will not take long at all to get used to.

If you plan to do a lot of time-lapse you'll want to purchase the optional power adapter which will cost you about $35 (Ouch!). Get yourself a 32gb SDHC card and a 2tb external hard drive and you'll be good to go. I won't be able to test the waterproof feature until next Summer. Finally, I can't comment on the on-board editing software because I use a professional editing suite. I'm sure it'll suit most basic needs.

I'm not sure how anyone could write a review for a WATERPROOF video camera without actually testing it in WATER. I bought this camera to take white water rafting last weekend.

Forget the touch screen; you don't even need to use it. Once you have the camera set up how you want it, hit the Screen Lock button. Then you just use the big red stop/record button. You can even use the video/picture button to quickly switch between videos and photos. I left the camera turned on for the entire 3-hour trip, strapped to my life vest. I could quickly lift it up, hit record, and catch some great videos. I was able to take some nice snapshots before and after the trip too.

The sound quality is about what you'd expect for this kind of camera, but you can clearly hear everyone in the raft, including the guide who was all the way in the back. I can't imagine why you would need much better sound quality than that.

The battery lasted for the whole trip, no problem. As far as charging it, it just uses a standard USB-mini connector, which you can find on just about every device manufactured these days. If you don't have a computer (seriously?), you can get a car adapter or a wall adapter for about $5, or you can get a USB battery backup pack for about $10 to $20.

This was $99 at Costco, and it came with a 4 Gb memory card which is good for about 45 minutes of HD Video. I swapped it out for a 16 Gb card for $20, which gave me 3 hours of recording time.

NOTE: The original video was shot in 1080p at 12850kbps. Amazon downsamples their videos to about the 700 kbps range and 480p resolution. Even YouTube cuts the bit rate for HD video in half. So, unfortunately, there isn't really a practical way to highlight the full quality of any HD video camera online. It does, however, accurately demonstrate the audio quality, and the waterproof functionality.

GREAT video, either 1080P 30 FPS, or 720P 60 FPS (the faster frame rate is better for moving subjects). It also has modes for YouTube and Apple that I haven't tried yet - and don't forget it does time lapse sequences as well!

The color touchscreen controls are very intuitive. You won't need the written manual.

I was disappointed by the stereo audio which sounds thin and phasey. (Perhaps I have a bad unit?)

It does a credible job of shooting stills, although they are not as sharp, nor do they have the dynamic range available in most $100 digital still cameras. But the submersible Picsio fits in your pocket and shoots great HD video!

Picsio also will record mp-3 stereo audio, but the audio quality is marginal in my unit. (I am talking myself into exchanging mine to see if the audio should really be better. Good audio should be technically easy to achieve compared to HD video.)

As an all-in-one camera, this waterproof Picsio is perfect - except for the audio deficiency. The softer still shots are acceptable considering everything else this very well-made camera does.

Post script: I have discovered that I cannot return or exchange the unit due to my own ignorance of the Amazon 30 day return policy on electronics. My fault. Now I must send the unit to the JVC factory warranty repair center in Texas. This I will do since I think the audio on my unit is surely not up to specs. More later.

Later post script on 12JAN2011: I sent my Picsio to the JVC Repair Center in McAllen, Texas. About 10 days after sending it, a technician from the JVC Repair Center telephoned me to ask more specifically about the audio problems I had described.
