Image quality

 

Panasonic PV-GS400

Smart design and excellent manual controls; great three-chip imagery and 16:9 performance; solid optical zoom and stabilizer; big LCD.

Not the smallest camera; mediocre low-light and still-image performance; not great as a point-and-shoot.

The Panasonic PV-GS400 offers outstanding value in a camcorder for the discriminating consumer.
