Needed a Replacement Camcorder to Transfer videos from miniDV tapes to my laptop

Summary: I bought this camcorder in the hopes that it would playback miniDV tapes in order for me and my family to once again view precious memories. I have since successfully transferred approximately 100 GB of videos (6 miniDv tapes) to my laptop. The camcorder works as the seller stated and do recommend this product for what I am using it for. Be reminded that you will need a IEEE1394 cable for the connection to the laptop.
Summary: If you have been using a vhs, hi-8 or other video format, then you are going to appreciate Panasonic's GS32 multi-cam. Named because of the use of multiple media to record on, this may be considered somewhat misleading as the SDHC media may be used only for photos. The vids are put onto the mini-DV tape. With resolution somewhat less than the presently popular 1080p or 1080i, this cam may be used for certain angles that are not really practical for a full-scale vid-cam.
Summary: The title says it all: Light, Small, Incredible Zoom, Easy Menus describes this camera. I don't know why there is only one review so far in 2008 when I am writing this to make two reviews on it. I bought this camera and was able to set it up and take pictures without even reading the manual. It takes good videos. The still mode requires adequate light. The digital zoom requires a tripod.
Summary: This camera is nice and small but the quality of the movies is quite poor. My movies turned out grainey and almost unwatchable, even using the high quality setting. I would say pass on this one and try to find a better one.

Summary: LIKED JUST LIKE BRAND SPANKIN NEW DAVE JONES a++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Summary: An excellent camera at a great price. I have looked at newer versions in the store, and they are not much better if at all, secondly they cost at least 3 times as much as what I had paid. The camera has a lot of nice features that I am just learning about. The zoom mic works great. I really love the built in light, and photo shot feature.
Summary: The only reason I did not give this camcorder an excellent rating is because a higher dollar unit has some better features. Other than that there is not a better camcorder for the price. Easy to use. Great features. Small in size. The only downside is the night vision function. It is not quite as good as the Sony NV. The 28x zoom is awesome and I use that more than the night vision function.
Summary: I needed a camcorder and waited until the last minute to buy one. But this camcorder came highly recommended (at least by the Costco salesman) so I bought it over the JVC. It worked wonderfully on my trip to the Disney parks as well as the Disney cruise that followed. I am very pleased with my choice of camcorders. Also the feature that allows you to switch to still photos saved me a lot of time switching to a separate camera.
