  • Summary: An attractive 3CCD minidv camcorder for under £1000? Woah! When I bought my GS500 I was looking for the catch, there wasn't one... and I've bought a lot of expensive cameras in recent times (mainly as part of my job.) The GS500 came out a couple of years ago, a smaller lighter version of the GS400 (which I have also owned) and I must say it's a big improvement in terms of practicality.
  • Pros: Wonderful borderline-professional image quality, easy to use, lovely looking, lightweight, pro-sumer pricetag!!!
  • Cons: Firewire and usb port behind flip-out screen

Very very good!

  • Summary: I have had this product for over 6 months now and am still over the moon with it. As a budding amateur/hobbyist film maker on a low budget, I did do a lot of homework before I opted for this model, and I still think i made the right choice. My favourite thing is the "broadcast quality?" output. It's just like watching regular TV - simply stunning - probably because of the German "Leica" lense (the same lense brand NASA used for the Appollo moon landings) -enough said.

The Best there is.

  • Summary: I bought this camera a few months ago and I have found it to be amazingly good. The picture quilty, colour, sharpness is par to what you see on TV or DVD. Personal i think this is the best camcorder you can get under £1000 and is better than the HD camcorders. The problem with HD is that you require a powerful computer to edit it and once edited the only place you can view the HD is through the camera.

Superb Image Quality

  • Summary: This is the third camcorder I have used. Until this one I had always been disappointed with the quality of the output; not any more - the sharpness and colour quality are brilliant. I am delighted because that is what I was looking for and what lead me to a 3CCD camera. The camera is also very comfortable to use and battery life seems better than quoted.

  • Excerpt: "...PURCHASE***** --------------------------------------------------------- I owned a low end panasonic DV camera for many years (NV-GS30B) which served me well and still works fine. I wanted to upgrade to a widescreen camera as I was fed up of watching my video on my widescreen TV with black bars down the edges. I use iMovie on my Apple Mac to wanted something compatible. I tried my friends Sony widescreen DV camera, which was not true widescreen ...
  • Pros: True widescreen 16 : 9, iMovie compatible, DV/Firewire, large lens and 12 * optical zoom
  • Cons: Larger than usual DV cam to accommodate the 43mm lens

  • Excerpt: Шикарная камера. Пользовался больше 6 лет пока она не начала жевать пленку (захотела в ремонт). Снимал дома, на сноуборд-покатушках, в поездках - только приятные впечатления. А сколько памятных записей! Денег своих стоит 100%.
  • Pros: Большая светосила, надежность
  • Cons: режим ночной съемки хорош только для статики или медленного движения

Prima Camcorder

Roland Kolks, Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: ich suchte noch einen Camcorder mit Mini-DV Kasetten. Mir wurde auch von der Panasonic Hotline gesagt das der GS 500 der beste seiner Klasse war und eine Super Bildqualität hat, fast HD Qualität. Nachdem ich den Camcorder jetzt ausprobiert habe, muss ich sagen, er ist wirklich Klasse. Tolle Aufnahmen und auch die Fotoqualität ist recht gut. War bei einem Leicaobjetiv auch nicht anders zu erwarten.
