Bling it on

With its reflective facets and wavy chrome-colored accent stripe, JVC is clearly not targeting the stealth video crowd. The photo doesn't do the the shiny clear plastic overcoat justice.

Buttons

Though the controls are straightforward to understand, they're flush with the surface, making them difficult to operate. There's no tactile feedback and the delayed responses induce lots of frustrated extra pressing. In addition, schmutz tends to accumulate in the cracks.

Connectors

Unlike competitors, all the ports on the FM1 are exposed and only partly camouflaged by the wavy silver plastic. The FM1 lacks a built-in USB cable, but JVC includes one as well as a composite video cable.

Macro

The FM1 does include a macro mode for focusing, and though it doesn't come with a protective case, there is a hand strap.
