Panasonic PV-GS300 Review

Digitaltrends
3 January 2007
  • Conclusion: At a $549 street price this is a very good—not great—Mini DV camcorder. If you’re thinking standard definition and tape, this is a fine choice. Still, it is tape-based and you’ll have to deal with that including rewinding cassettes and the possibility of recording over important memories.
  • Pros: 3 CCDs; OIS; 10x Leica lens; good price
  • Cons: Uses Mini DV tape; menu system needs help

Easy Camcorder

  • Excerpt: The PV-GS300 is Panasonic’s penultimate MiniDV camcorder for this year, just under the PV-GS500. It replaces the GS250, and with a price drop of three hundred dollars, the $699 MSRP makes it an excellent value. It carries over the fine tradition of solid video performance, three 1/6” CCDs, superior manual controls, and great handling. The price drops comes at the loss of a focus ring, a headphone jack, and analog-to-digital pass through.
  • Pros: -Lower price than predecessor, -Better video performance, -Widescreen LCD, -Smaller camcorder body than last year
  • Cons: -Loss of Headphone Jack, -No analog-to-digital pass-through, -Loss of Focal Ring
