A real gem for the videographer.

 

It was that time again. Time to start the search for a replacement for my camcorder - a Sony which has seen very heavy use and was beginning to show the signs of wear and tear. The Sony has been good. Hard to replace in many ways. When it was bought, ...

Impressive video quality, great handling and controls, optical stabilization, good optical zoom. Good battery life

Using the wide angle lens, and my experience with the cam after 22 months

 

UPDATE August 08Still using the camcorder several times a week. I have shot a lot of video for walkme2.com. The white balance problem happens most often with flourescent lighting. The dirty head message becomes worse with higher humidity. We are in ...

A 1.26 lb miracle

 

Before getting this camcorder, I talked to my friend who owns a 3-CCD "prosumer" Panasonic PV-GS400 and to a couple of salesmen who seemed professional and honest to me. I also read hundreds of reviews in the Internet and compared video quality of ...

Music Video Success with the PV-GS50

 

This is a lovely little camcorder that I like to call a movie camera. I shot my first indie music video for a group using the Panasonic GS50. The image quality is 'there'. If you're planning to do any type of project (documentary, video diary, music ...

Video Quality. VHS to Digital Pass Through. Hot Shoe. Price.

None really. Battery Life...maybe?

One of the better quality camcorders. Consumer Reports rated amongst highest.

 

This is an excellent quality camcorder. Often there's more to consider when reading reviews on camcorders, such as the lighting in the room. Perhaps it'd be given a bad overall review if most using this product fired it up without considering lighting....

Excellent picture quality when used in conjunction with good lighting

A couple of minor ones, but not even worth mentioning

Tough little camera - weak peripheral bundle

 

I've been using this camera for about a year with pretty good results. I bought it to shoot video of our baby, so I was not looking for professional quality imagery from the outset. I like that the camera is small, easy to carry and quick to fire-up. ...
