Panasonic PV-GS200

 

One of the two most compact three-chip MiniDV cameras on the market.

Extremely compact for a three-CCD model; top-notch color reproduction; solid manual controls; broad feature set.

Poor low-light performance; mediocre stills; suboptimal image stabilization.

A small, portable three-CCD camera at an attractively low price--with some trade-offs.
