JVC has announced the Picsio GC-FM1, a pocket sized digital camera that features 8 megapixel still image shooting, HD video recording at 1440 x 1080p and image stabilization.

The camera is about the size of a small cell phone but still manages to squeeze in a two inch LCD view screen, and is available in three colors -- Black Ice, Blue Steel and Purple Passion.



To suit individual shooting situations, one of four video recording modes can be chosen: 1440 x 1080p @ 30 fps, 1280 x 720p @ 60 fps, 640 x 480p @ 60 fps and 320 x 240p @ 30 fps. Videos are recorded in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format and stored as .MOV files.

Connectors include mini HDMI out, AV out and USB. The camera charges via USB connection, so it automatically charges whenever connected to a PC and not transferring files.

The JVC Picsio GC-FM1 pocket camera is available now for USD $200.
