JVC has just announced two new pocket video cameras that have some decent specs like 1080p video recording and a 5mp sensor for still image capture. The models are the GC-WP10 with an MSRP of $199.95 that’s also waterproof, and the GC-FM2 that’s got an MSRP of $179.95. Both will be available in early September. The cameras are touch screen based and also offer time-lapse recording. The WP-10 is not only waterproof but offers an MP3 record function so it can be used as an audio recorder.
For easy editing and uploading, LoiLoScope EX for Windows software is factory installed. This new software offers quick, intuitive editing and direct uploading to YouTube and Facebook, exporting to iTunes and more. It can launch immediately when the camera is connected to virtually any PC. The uploading process, including editing, entails just a few easy steps. A full array of special effects is available for creative editing, supported by simplified icon-based access and intuitive drag-and-drop operation. Windows 7 Multi-Touch is supported, so operation via any compatible PC touch screen is possible. File output for DVD creation is also available.
