Panasonic GS230

Visorup, Amazon
1 July 2010
  • Summary: Very good cam, beats the competition to a pulp, superb colour, sharp as a blade and allows external mic and head phones to be used this put's the gs230 up a gear from it's more exspensive sister the gs320. EIS is rubbish but then you should be using a tripod or at the very least have a monopod dangling from the base to act as a steady. USB high speed transport that equals Fire Wire qaulity, would not beleave it if a I had not seen it myself!

  • Excerpt: "I purchased this camera 2 years ago after spending alot of time online looking at different types of camcorders. I chose to purchase a mini dv camcorder due to removable storage. I can not bare the thought of being away and not being able to film anything else due to a full hard drive. This camera caught my eye as it has 3ccd. Which means it uses 3 chips to process colours instead of one. From this you get nice bright colours and it works well in ...
  • Pros: Accesory shoe .  Big clear lcd .  Ease of use .  Easy navigational menu .  Not heavy .
  • Cons: Short battery life, sensitive mic and shakey on zoom .

Panasonic Nv GS230 Mini Dv Camcorder Review

Sam, Unbeatable
9 February 2009
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera as I was videoing a friends wedding. I paid less than �300 so wasn''t expecting perfection. It isn''t, by any stretch of the imagination, a professional camera. It''s small, light, easy to hold and is simple to use. The quality of the image is very good for it class. The 3 CCD system really boosts the colours and gives a vibrant image. The problems occur at low light - the nv-gs230 really struggled and images were murky and focus was often terrible.
  • Pros: 3CCD provides great colour. Decent range of features. Microphone input.
  • Cons: Terrible in low light. No DV-input

This is an incredibly versitile little camera and at the price is very affordable. This is a very easy camera to use and its functions are very easy to understand although they are quite basic but if your like me and don't want hundreds and thousands of little buttons flashing at you it is perfect. Now ...
  • Pros: Easy to use and very very cheap

  • Summary: it's everything i wanted in a camcorder, it's great for basic editing, and propbably the best quality for the price range! Mini DV is definatly the best quality, and will be for the next few years. Easy to use as well!

  • Excerpt: "...is for the lovely little Panasonic NV GS30B it's small, stylish and records well. The design is good it looks the part. It's very compact as well as being black and silver. The "window" you look at the screen on folds out of the side well and doesn't seem flimsy or tacky as some do. It has an optical zoom of 10 x. It has electronic viewfinder technology, electronic image stabiliser. The minimal focal length is 2.3mm and the maximum focal length ...
  • Pros: Small camcorder very compact
  • Cons: no one looks cool while using a camcorder

Panasonic NV-GS230 Camcorder

  • Summary: Der Camcorder besticht durch seine kleine handliche Bauweise,seinen 3CCD Farbchip,der hervorragende Farben liefert,sowie durch manuelle Bedienung vieler Funktionen,welche sich besonders für Personen eignen,die sich mit der digidalisierug von alten Schmalfilmen befassen zB.der direkten Abtastung von der Filmbühne des Projektors.Ein kleiner Nachteil ist das Aufnehmen auf Mini-Cassetten.Die Videoköpfe solcher Camcorder verschmutzen relativ schnell.

  • Excerpt: Насчёт телевизионной картинки конечно загнули,картинка неплоха только при правильном и достаточном освещении и ручных настройках.При длительном пользовании начинают замечатся недостатки,а именно худшее качество оптики(ореолы на предметах,чёткость уступает аналогичным аппаратам с лейковской оптикой).Стабилизатор оставляет желать лучшего,лично я вообще отключил.Но за эту цену,повторюсь,лучше не найти.
  • Pros: Для её цены качество действительно достойное.
  • Cons: Всё-таки лейковская оптика не помешала-бы

  • Excerpt: Пользуюсь девайсом почти 2 года, отснято более десятка кассет. Аппарат достойный в плане надежности, неприхотлив. Качество картинки отличное, хорошая цветопередача, яркие цвета. Работает практически при любой освещенности. В соотношении цена-качество очень достойный выбор.
  • Pros: Отличная цветопередача. Хорошая картинка практически при любой освещенности. Хорошо пишет звук. Достаточно неприхотлива, за 2 года только один раз потребовала чистки головки, когда снимал на сафари в пустыне)) С усиленным акумом хватает на часа полтора-два съемки.
  • Cons: Аккум в комплекте слабый, без дополнительного усиленного в поездках ничего снять не успеешь. Бегунок трансфокатора расположен не удобно. Работа с меню только через кнопки на корпусе (у многих "одноклассников" есть сенсорный экран).
