Summary: I purchased this model after research here and on several other web sites. I was looking for a camera that had over all good performance and the potential quality from 3 CCDs was intriguing. Unfortunately when compared to my Canon ZR25 (yes that's right) the GS300 did not seem worth the price. While there was noticeably less noise in the low light settings it did not capture significantly more picture. In normal indoor light the colors were washed.
