Don't let the price fool you. The PV-GS19, available for under $300 on the street, is a marvel of manual control, a trait we value quite highly. So should you. Manual control is what can make the difference between a good home production and a great...

Keep Looking-poor picture

 

Disappointing is the word that comes to mind. I'm already trying to decide what my next camcorder will be, and I paid $400 for this about a year ago.

Nice little camera, but bad quality picture

 

Overall, it's a nice small camera that is very portable, and is user friendly when operating. But I didn't like the fact that the sales person neglected to tell me that you need a firewire to transfer video from the camera to your computer. No big deal...

Small, cool looking, nice features

Very bad picture quality, transfering to PC very misleading Not worth the hassle
