Camcorder - high quality, easy to use

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • 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. I love this camcorder because I can use a firewire to download to a computer or a DVD recorder, edit, and produce a high quality DVD with little effort on my part.

Excellent little camera

  • 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 works better than most cameras in its class under low-lighting conditions and the color separation in good light is stunning, especially compared to 1 CCD camera like most comparably priced camcorders in its class.

Wireless Mic can be used - Excellent camera!

  • Summary: This camera has been great for our school. We tape students with teachers and we needed to find an inexpensive camera with a wireless mic input. Now we can hear everything perfectly when the teacher is wearing a lapel wireless mic (sold separately - Sony set). The quality of the picture is wonderful and the ease of use is excellent.

Great little camera

Geraldine Ahrens, Amazon
28 May 2007
  • Summary: I have used this on interviews for my class projects, carried it around and took video of birds at a wildlife refuge and this camera has really performed. The microphone picks up sounds really well. On interviews I didn't need an external mic, though there is a plug in for one. I even used it to record a particular bird at dawn one morning. The sound came through very well. I like the fact I can record in wide screen or regular.

Panasonic Palmcorder Multicam PV-GS180 Great Value!!

theblueprop, Ebay
2 February 2007
  • Summary: Great 3ccd mini-dv camera!!-one of the few lower priced cams to keep the mic jack and the headphone jack which adds tremendous value to the camcorder.Picture quality is very good in regular and widescreen mode! Stills taken in sunlight are also very good; however, they are lousy for low light situations,and forget about shooting video in low light with this camera,the 1/6' 3ccd's require ample light.I have found a video light mounted on the cold shoe on top of the camera...

Works with Macs.

Karen K. Hart, Amazon
19 December 2006
  • Summary: When I was looking for a camcorder, this seemed like the best bet: it had almost all the features I wanted, although I was concerned about how it would deal with low-light situations. Still, I was discouraged to read all the descriptions of how the camera worked with Windows; would it work with my Mac? I emailed Panasonic to find out, and Panasonic told me I'd need to hook the camera up via firewire.

Very compact, but easy to use

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 November 2006
  • Summary: I bought the Panasonic PV-GS180 2.3MP 3CCD MiniDV Camcorder to replace an earlier Panasonic model that I had had to send to their repair facility twice for various problems, and when the tape transport quit working, I decided to go for a new camera rather than send it in a third time. So I was a little concerned about the reliability of Panasonic camcorders. But I wanted to jump to 3CCD technology, and this was one of the lowest price camcorders offering that feature.

off to a great start

D. Monteith, Amazon
2 August 2006
  • 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. Had to try three different sets of headphones before I could find one that would fit into the narrow slot where the headphone jack is.
