SimplyDV Review: Panasonic NV-GS200EB DV Camcorder


Great 3CCD image quality, good physical handling, excellent range of functions. 20x digital zoom better than expected, top-loading of tapes.

500x digital zoom is useless, letterbox widescreen not outstanding.

At its price, the GS200 is an excellent 3CCD camcorder (as is the GS120) Picture quality is fantastic, and top-loading is the icing on the cake. This deserves a full rating!
