For beginners, the Panasonic PV-GS300 camcorder is a model that you will definitely want to consider. If you are searching for a camcorder that offers high video quality without having to switch out of automatic mode, the PV-GS300 should be able to handle all of your needs. And of course, if you are a bit more advanced the PV-GS300 also offers features that will make you feel as if you were using a model twice the $500 price tag.

This three CCD camcorder is Panasonic’s midrange offering. One of the biggest adjustments over last years PV-GS250 is the price. And this is good for consumers because the price has decreased and not increased like most of the competition.

The main benefit of the Panasonic PV-GS300 is the three CCD chips that are featured. This allows for sharper color and image capture than camcorders that are only equipped with one CCD chip. But even though this may appeal to a lot of people, the lack of features in other areas are turning off a lot of consumers. The bottom line is that experienced videographers who are looking for more control over their shooting will not get it from the PV-GS300.

Handling the PV-GS300 is easy thanks to a compact design weighing in at just over one pound. This makes it easy for anybody to shoot videos with one hand, and without tiring after only a few minutes. To navigate options you will have to use the small joystick which can sometimes be awkward to say the least. This is definitely something that you will have to get used to.

All in all, the Panasonic PV-GS300 is perfect for anybody who just wants to shoot high quality video without regularly changing setting. But for those with more advanced needs, this model is probably not the best choice.
