Incredible colors at a very affordable price!


Intro I have been in the market for a mid-range, but high-quality video camera for some time now. The cameras I was looking at the most were the Sony DCR-TRV70 (street price*: $800), the Canon Optura Xi (street price*: $975), the Panasonic ...

3CCDs means awesome color! Very affordable. Nice included accessories

Poor low light performance. Relatively low-res CCDs (occasional jaggies in video, poor still quality)

Multi-function [PUSH] dial, zoom microphone, tiny powerful battery, lots of user-controlled settings

Hair-trigger zoom control, poor user's manual, awkward lens cap, extra parts needed for downloading footage

Panasonic Palmcorder® PV-GS70 Mini DV Camcorder


The main selling point of the Panasonic PV-GS70 would be the fact that it features a professional-style 3CCD design - three separate CCD for red green and blue color, whereas majority of consumer-grade camcorders has only one CCD for all colors. ...

3CCD design produces vibrant colors, easy to use, excellent picture quality for the price

Slight green emphasis, low-light performance could be better

For months I researched my options for an affordable, portable video camera. I was looking for something that would shoot decent video, take digital stills and be small enough to carry around with me most of the time. This led me to consider models...

3 CCDs, Very Portable, Versatile Shooting Options., PRICE

Not Small Enough, Poor Low Light Capability, LCD Screen
