Panasonic PV-GS150 MiniDV Camcorder

Tom Rhodes, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: Although used, the camera was in very good condition with all features in good operating condition. I particularly liked that the camera accepted both DV tapes and memory cards for recording videos, and had a bright, clear image in the viewing screen.

Good product Not worth if you want to use it in dark

MADHAV ABHYANKAR "MadMan", Amazon
26 May 2006
  • Summary: I would put this camera in 5/5 rating if the it could work fine in low light. In day light or in electric light even if not so bright, this camera does a good job. The look and Feel: Perfect. Its fits on the palm of my hand and its very comfortable to handle. Movie: Wonderful quality in broad daylight 5.0/ 5.0. In low light 2.0/5.0 Average night light 4.5/5.0 Picture: 3.0/5.0 But this is not meant to be a digital camera. But still does a decent job on that side.

Very good value, but image quality only ok

David Seber "dseber", Amazon
22 February 2006
  • Summary: I did quite a bit of research on video cameras but I am by no means an expert. I selected this camera in the hopes that the image quality would be a lot better than my older JVC camera. Although the colors are a bit better, that is all you seem to get for the 3CCD. I love the small compact size as well as the features and ease of operations. It is a bit uncomfortable to hold in my hand, it seems better suited for someone with smaller hands.

very nice camera

E. Richards "GenEric", Amazon
19 February 2006
  • Summary: We bought this camera Oct. 2005 and it malfunctioned two months later. We spent the next two weeks trying to contact Panasonic. Panasonic website e-mail doesn't work. Finally a local Panasonic dealer told us to contact Bigston Corp. They fixed it within the 90 day warranty. Works great since then. As far as the camera itself, very nice. Video and still picture quality in daylight are sharp with very nice colors.

Movie Maker Girl "Chelsea", Amazon

  • Summary: Well I just recived this camera for Christmas and I thought it was great taking pictures and all, but it didn't come with a tape. Although the picture quality is exalent I suggest you buy a tape that fits it before you buy it.

pretty good for indoor lighting

julie "julie", Amazon
13 December 2005
  • Summary: We bought the Canon ZR100 but retutrned it before we opened it after reading many reviews about the loud fan/motor and bad low light recordings. We bought the Sony HC21 next and thought the colors looked dull and the greys looked grainy in a room with two lamps and a window. We primarily wanted it for home movies of the baby. We exchanged that for the Panasonic pv-gs150 after reading many reviews and ratings.

Tiny Camcorder works well, but controls are not intuitive

J. Biehle "RKITEC", Amazon
18 August 2005
  • Summary: I purchased the Panasonic Camcorder to record my son's wedding and, for the most part, I was well pleased. The quality of still and moving photos as good, and the size and weight of the unit make it very portable and relatively unobtrusive. The package that includes the camera, however, does not include a memory card for the still photos or any tapes for the motion shots, these added another $60 or so to the cost.

Customer "Service?"

R. Bray, Amazon
4 August 2005
  • Summary: As others have stated, this is a nice compact high quality camcorder for all the reasons listed. However, when I couldn't get it to receive a DV signal from my computer, I called the tollfree Customer Service line asking for help. After two calls and an hour on the phone, talking to three reps, whom each conferred with an associate, they said, "the camera wasn't designed for that." The problem is that IT IS DESIGNED TO DO THAT.

Decent camcorder with a few cons

Lei Xie, Amazon
30 April 2005
  • Summary: The camcorder offers outstanding video quality (at its price level)in adequate lighting condition. I had a chance to compare it to Cannon Opture 500. I think GS150 produces better color than Opeture does, due largely to 3ccd, but makes slightly more noise in low light settings. I like the joystick, which makes the control panel look clean and simple. However, there are a few things I am not happy with. 1. Generally, EIS does not improve much from GS120.

Pretty decent camera for the price

Prashanth Krishnappa "Video Jockey", Amazon
30 April 2005
  • Summary: I have had this camera for about 3 weeks. Bought this after lot of research(mini-dvd versus miniDV). Read some horror stories about an entire disk getting wiped out with mini-dvd camcorders. GS150 does an amazing job in bright day light. Colors are vibrant compared to 1 CCD cameras. Low light performance is so so. Overall, I am a satisfied customer. If you plan on transferring video to a computer, get a fire-wire cable. This camera needs a 4 pin male connector.
