Summary: This was a gift for my daughter - to replace the same model camcorder that she had also as a gift from dad - so I have not used it myself. However she was taking video and stills at Christmas and said it was operating nicely.
Summary: I was pleased beyond my expectations! My camcorder arrived in just a couple of days in like-new, excellent condition. I would not hesitate to purchase from this seller again! My son, Charles Fullwood is a singer-songwriter, and I use my camcorder to videotape his performances.
Summary: We purchased this camera in 2005 before going to Peru on vacation. It performed amazingly! We shot about 500 stills, and about 5 mini-dv tapes full of memories. I have used it on many trips since and now use it almost weekly at church events and family gatherings.
Summary: this was my first ever camcorder, this model dropped in price and can be picked up for around $200-300. As mentioned in many online reviews the color is very accurate, but issues with low light.
Summary: This camcorder has many features to desire and can be used for everyday use in many conditions. This is the second camcorder I've had in this range and am really pleased with it. The only negative thing about it is the low resolution still camera functionality it has at 3.1 MP.
Only worked for about 4 weeks in the last year and a half

Summary: I was looking forward to using this highly rated camera for taking video of our new son. Unfortunately, the camera tape mechanism went out after the first 4 months and I had to send the camera to Illinois to be repaired, and also to get the tape out of the camera. The camera was out for 6 weeks.
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying the PV-GS250. Now that I have the camera in my hands I know I made a great choice. Great image quality. Great build quality. The low light problems you read about are not really a big deal. In a noramlly lit room everything is fine.
Summary: I love my new camera!!! This is my first video camera and there is definitely no buyers remorse here. It is soooo user friendly!I researched many cameras and found this one to be most suitable for my needs.
