Summary: This is a great camera for anyone. This is a low budget camera with large budget capabilities. I am impressed with this camera and its features. For a consumer level camera, the GS-150 offers important manual features for those who want more control of the shot.
Summary: I have had this camera for a little over 2 years, and it has served me very well on numerous occasions. The quality of the picture was really impressive when I paid $600, and these cameras are going for half that now. The image quality is boosted by the fact that this camera uses a 3 CCD imaging sensor, which is the professional standard. The camera is very easy to use, and has a sensible button layout.
Summary: I have own this 3CCD one for 1 year. I had another 2, 1 from JVC and 1 from Panasonic. They are not working indoor most of time because of the dark and bad light. However, this 3ccd one makes a real difference. I am more than happy to have it. The only problem is the poor still image quality although it says 2Mb resolution. But I always use dedicated digial camera, so not a big deal for me.
Summary: I use this camcorder for my own videography business and have never had any complaints about the video quality. To get a better camcorder, you would literally have to pay twice as much money. Some people have complained about the low light capabilities, and in my mind this is the one problem with the camera. You will need to find a good camcorder light to make up for this problem. But images shot outdoors look similar in quality to my friend's $2000 cannon camcorder!
Summary: First off, this is an awesome camera for the price. There is no other camera in the same price range which will deliver this much performance and quality for the money. Those who talk about the low-light quality needs to go out and purchase themselves hotshoe light. Who in their right mind would shoot at 15, 30 or even 60 lux without an external light anyway? Picture quality will be greatly hampered.
Summary: My wife and I went on our first cruise and I wanted a camera that would take video and still pictures. After wearing out the internet,I finally selected the Panasonic PV-GS150. I was amazed at the number of passengers on board that had the same camera! I couldn't be happier with the results of this camera. The color reproduction is fantastic! I used it in alot of different applications such as; daylight, night shots, even sunsets. It did a great job!
Summary: I bought this camcorder about 4 months ago primarily for recording my daughters' gymnastics meets. So most of the time I shoot in average lighting indoors, with fast moving subjects, using tripod or monopod and zoomed anywhere from 1x to 10x. I added a 2x teleconverter lens and UV filter for lens protection. My previous camcorder was the Panasonic PV-GS19 single CCD. What a difference 3 CCD's make.
Summary: This is truly a great camera in every respect. Low light performance, auto-focus, image-stabalization and connectivity. The battery life isn't as good as I would have liked (2-3hrs) but that's forgivable for all the other features. I was deciding between Pv-GS35, 65 and 150. The difference between 35 and 65/150 in low-light performance was significant enough to warrant the extra cost and I choose GS150 over GS65 primarily because of the assist lamp, built-in lens cover...
Summary: Had nothing but praises for this camcorder so far - owned it for almost a month now and I absolutely love it. Also shot a professional looking engagement video with it!! Although the lighting was a bit to the darker side and the event was completely indoors the picture and colour quality was amazing. Here's a quick breakdown of this amazing camcorder : Pros: ** Excellent picture quality and best of the line colour reproduction.
