With an MSRP of $499.99, Panasonic's PV-GS15 hits a bit under the midpoint the manufacturer's PV-GS line as far as price and quality go. It's a very decent camcorder for the money, but you have to be the right user. For your hard-earned dollar,...

I lucked out with the PVGS-15 about a year ago when I got a really good deal on it to replace my other MiniDV handy cam that broke after about 12 times for no known reason. Let me be very clear, the very low light performance of this camera is no ...

PV GS15 Don't buy for digital pictures

 

We debated over whether to purchase a camcorder that also took digital stills. I had read in some tech magazine that you cannot get good quality of both, unless you spend big bucks. Well, we choose not to spend big bucks, but we did analyze the mega ...
