Product Specifications

The GS5 offers breathtakingly beautiful color reproduction and a host of convenient features like the SD voice recorder (25min per 8MB) and MPEG4 Internet movie capability. The smart wind cut system recognizes automatically noise interference and fades it out. With the 10 times Optical and the 500 times Digital zoom you can zoom in to far away objects-and it even zooms in on sound. The Color Night View allows you to take pictures even in the darkest night. The GS5 also includes a DV-input terminal so you can easily edit your videos on your PC and then transfer back to DV cassette. This camera is Bluetooth-compatible.
