Although it has some weaknesses, the GS150 delivers quality video via its 3CCD sensor, in a tidy package that is very easy to use.

3CCD sensor delivers quality video, easy-to-use menus, 2.3 megapixel still capture

Relatively poor low-light performance

Panasonic NV-GS150


At AU$1,759, it's a good deal with a varied set of features that would satisfy most consumers.

3CCD at a low price point ; Built-in flash ; Much improved menu

Average night performance ; Limited burst mode

Product Specifications

Panasonic's new 3CCD camcorder takes the digital video camera an evolutionary step forward by incorporating 3CCD technology in ultra compact models, bringing professional level technology to the consumer, offering superior ease of use. At the heart of the camcorder is the 3CCD camera system - the type used in professional video cameras. Playing a critical role in picture quality, this system, which uses a separate CCD to process each of the three primary components of light provides exceptionally pure, faithful color. Panasonic's advanced 3CCD system gives users greater beauty in three different ways: in color, detail and gradation. Furthermore, Panasonic's Crystal Engine advanced image-processing circuitry helps deliver maximum performance from the CCD camera system. The Crystal Engine processes the signal from each of the three CCDs independently, giving both moving and still pictures outstanding quality. The Crystal Engine digital signal processing LSI suppresses noise and enhances the resolution.
