The FM2 is JVC's latest dime-a-dozen pocket camcorder. Pretty standard shoot-and-share fare here with 1080p video, HDMI and USB outputs, still image capture, and electronic image stabilization. The standout feature is the 3-inch touchscreen LCD. It's sleek, though we're not crazy about touchscreens in general. Still, if you see this on sale at a big-box retailer this holiday season, it should get the job done. If there's a cheaper Kodak next to it, though, go for that one.
