Panasonic PV-GS70 Mini DV Camcorder

 

The PV-GS70 is a very portable, compact camera that shoots a nice image, has a full set of manual controls and has the necessary audio jacks.

Sharp images, saturated colors, Full set of manual exposure controls, Microphone and headphone jacks

Needs plenty of light, Average image stabilization

Panasonic PV-GS70 MiniDV Digital Camcorder

 

in low light situation, use the sima camcorder light and/or the manual WB in higher to get a better video,the still images are good, but only for web purposes.

great video (but not excellent almost like my old jvc), very portable, size, and the $650.00 that I paid for it

bad low light images, the 3ccd suppossed to make a big improvement over regulars camcorders ,instead that lightly improvement

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)

2nd Update. An upturn in developments

 

Update #2: Although I've been frustrated by the manual, and the Panasonic website, they do deserve full credit for a prompt and clear reply to my request for assistance in downloading footage from the camera. Since I've been vocal in criticizing them, ...

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 PV-GS70 MiniDV Digital Camcorder

 

Everyone keeps saying "Poor low light".

Great picture. Superb feel and comfortability. Long long battery life. Great color separation. Nice and compact. Very easy to use. Motor noise inaudible even in quiet scenes.

Stabilization is weak. This isn't all that bad, but it does shake at 10x.

Panasonic PV-GS70 MiniDV Digital Camcorder

 

I used the camera outdoors in Europe on some misty days.

Quality image in good light. Small, good point and shoot video digicam.

Poor documentation for transferring video to computer. Terrible customer support.

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
