Summary: I haven't decided if I want to return this camcorder yet. I got sucked into the 3CCD thing after reading a lot of great reviews. But honestly, I'm not seeing a huge difference in quality compared to the older technology. Also, i'm struggling with lighting. Indoors, the picture appears too dark.
Summary: THE CAMCORDER IT WAS NOT GOOD WIT WINDOWS VISTA AND WHEN I WANT TO RETURN THE PRODUCT THE SELLER DOESNT WANT TO RECIBE THE PRODUCT ONLY BECAUSE I DONT HAVE THE ORIGINAL BOX ALSO HE CALL ME TO DELETE THE OTHER FEEDBAK AND THE CLAIM THAT I PUT HIM DONT BUY TO USA CAMERA
Summary: I bought this used camcorder to replace one that I loved. The film quality is superior, both in video and sound. The vendor sent some "extras" that doubled the value - the perfect camera bag and some cleaners, etc.
Summary: This is my first camcorder, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I've enjoyed it so far. It's easy to use. The picture quality seems high. The only minor problem I've found is with the headphone input.
Summary: This is one of very few 3CCD palm-type camcorders that came out. The videos it takes are on par with my professional canon cameras. It has a menu-driven manual control system that allows you to get even better shots if you know what you're doing.

It costs almost as much to repair it as to buy a new one - but in order to get your tape out ( assuming you were taping something important - like...
Summary: I bought the GS180 prior to my trip to China. I also bought a 4 hour after-market battery; I've since bought another one. That's what you'll need if you are touring all day and using the LCD screen all of the time. With the battery, the viewfinder becomes just about useless since it doesn't tilt up.
Summary: The main reasons I bought this (now discontinued) model are: it has 3 ccd chips (great for color and detail, especially outdoors), it's size and feel, and the fact that it has an accessory shoe and mic input. I use it for family videos, and for short videos for our church's youth group.
