What was the design team at JVC thinking when they designed the GC-PX1? The conversation must have sound something like this: Designer 1: “I want it to look like a camcorder.” Designer 2: “No way, dude! It’s gotta look like a point & shoot.” Designer 1: “Camcorder!” Designer 2, “Point & shoot!” “Camcorder!” “Point & Shoot!” Designer 3: “Let’s make it look like both and make it really ugly with awesome specs!” Designers 1 & 2: “Perfect… Great idea!” 

And thus, the JVC GC-PX1 was Frankensteined together.

The GC-PX1 might be ugly, but the specs are impressive. Impress got some touchy-feely time with the camera and they found it shoots full 1080p HD video at 60fps, as well as 10 megapixel stills. It has an ISO range of 100-6400, 10X zoom and a 3-inch tilt up touch screen display, 32GB of internal memory, and an SDXC compatible memory card slot. It can also do up to 300 fps @ 640 x 360.

The JVC GC-PX1 camera/camcorder is scheduled to be released at the end of February in Japan. No price information has been released, nor is there any information about a North American release. Yet.
