JVC in Japan has announced [JP] two new Picsio camcorders today, the GC-WP10-A (pictured above) and the GC-FM2 (pictured below). Both models record video in full HD, come with web connectivity (iTunes, Facebook, YouTube) and with video editing software LoiloScope on board. They also feature a 3-inch touchscreen and a 1/3.2 CMOS sensor (5MP).
Both camcorders are also equipped with an HDMI interface, a USB port, an SD/SDHC/SDXC slot, and Eye-Fi support. But there are also a few differences between the camcorders. The GC-WP10-A is waterproof up to 3m (JIS IPX8), records sounds in stereo (GC-FM2: mono only) and has a voice recording function (MP3).
And as you can see on the picture above, it’s also sturdier and thicker than the FM2. The WP10 is sized at 101×60×25mm (weight: 147g), while the FM2 measures 102×53×22mm (113g).
JVC plans to start selling both camcorders in Japan next month (prices: $235 for the FM2, $350 for the WP10).
