Excerpt: The Panasonic PV-GS400 is a dominant player this year. It is a three CCD camcorder that was originally made available for about 1,500 bones, and is now available for around a grand. This is a super deal, considering what the camcorder has to offer. It also enjoys a nice cushion of popularity resulting from Sony’s comparable models being flawed in the areas of manual control and handling.
Pros: - Low light performance, - Still capabilities, - Manual control options, - Combo function ring
