Excerpt: The Panasonic PV-GS2 has a lot of camcorder packed into its small frame and price range, and the price here, folks, is the main advantage to this camcorder. With its SD card still capturing capabilities and 22x optical zoom, this camcorder rises above the competition. However, without the ability to support analog to digital pass-though, the PV-GS2 may not look too attractive to the serious hobbyist, aside from its availability as a spare MiniDV deck.
Pros: - Manual Control, - 22x optical zoom, - Video and Low light performance, - Top loading, - Card media
Cons: - Ease of use, - No analog to digital passthrough, - No widescreen mode
