JVC GC-WP10-Waterproof camera with built in MP3 player captures full HD video and stunning photos
JVC today announced two pocket cameras the GC-WP10 and GC-FM2. Both cameras bring a new level of fun and ease-of-use to making and sharing videos and photos. The new PICSIO pocket cameras feature Full HD video, excellent low-light performance, a three-inch touch screen for easy operation and playback viewing, and compatibility with Eye-Fi cards for Wi-Fi connectivity. To produce stunning photos, PICSIO’s CMOS image sensor captures stills at up to five-megapixel native resolution without interpolation. It also records up to 1920 x 1080p/30 fps Full HD video with image stabilization. Users can select from four different recording resolutions: Full HD 1080 (1920 x 1080/30p), HD 720 (1280 x 720/60p), iFrame (960 x 540/30p) and Quarter High Definition (960 x 540/30p). The new PICSIO cameras offers time-lapse recording, which reduces hours-long segments to mere seconds.
The most prominent feature on the new PICSIO cameras is the three-inch touch screen with on-screen graphics for shooting and playback controls, including the 4x digital zoom. The large screen also enhances playback, with a large, clear image that makes it easy for all to enjoy what was recorded.
Both PICSIO pocket cameras work with iMovie on the Mac. The new PICSIO cameras come with an SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot for versatile storage. The slot is optimized for Eye-Fi cards, so files can be quickly uploaded and shared using a wireless network. The PICSIO GC-WP10 is waterproof to a depth of 10 feet/3 meters (IPX8 certified) for worry-free recording underwater, on the slopes or in the rain. The GC-WP10 also comes with a MP3 audio recorder to capture everything from lectures to jam sessions in stereo. The JVC PICSIO GC-FM2 will be available in early September for approximately $179.95 and JVC PICSIO GC-WP10 in late September for $199.95.
