Summary: I bought this camcorder 3 months ago and, after using it a grand total of 6 times, it is broken. It constantly loses track of timestamp on the tape doing things like rewinding 2 minutes (two minutes on the counter in the display), refusing to rewind anymore and telling me the tape is full. It's a 60 minute tape and it can only record 2 minutes???
Summary: I have been to the showroom today and tested the gs 300 myself. To my great disappointment, the technological level remained the same as what I have got four years ago. No improvement at all. It is actually unbelievable that the Panasonic company did not realise or did nothing to rectify the problem.
