Great little backup camera

aposhpeacock, Ebay

  • Summary: Great little camera. When you add the device to connect the camera to a tripod, it covers the flip door to the AC port. Kindof a bummer, since the tiny little battery only lasts 1 1/2 hours. The eject button on this camera sticks a little, but all in all, it did a great job on my first backup video I was running with it. Picture/Sound/audio was great. Thank you so much!

Excellent piece of photographic equipment.

  • Summary: I previously had one just like it; but it got stolen on vacation. I was used to the filming on this camera, editing, transferring to permanent CD. I was not ready for the updated version of camcorders and I was very pleased to find the PV-GS59 available.

decent camera/bad buying experience

Thomas Paul Konard, Amazon
26 February 2008
  • Summary: I'm not sure about Amazon's site. This is my third attempt at a review. It keeps disappearing as I type. The camera is decent for something I did not order. It was shipped as a substitute the day BEFORE it was supposed to arrive with the seller not asking first, if they may substitute. So it arrived late and was a surprise.

great product and excellent seller!

  • Summary: i'm totally satisfied with this camcorder. it fill every expectatives i could have about it. i don't agree with the complaints about the bad sound and bad video in low light. in fact, i'm amazed about the way it can film in very low light (more than i can hope). obviously the quality isn't perfect, it's a little grainy but, if you want perfection, then go for an expensive professional cam.

VERY DISPLEASED

  • Summary: The zoom is a great feature but doesn't make up for the HORRIBLE Audio and HORRIBLE video in low light. When I contacted Panasonic, basically the bottom line was too bad.

Horrible video quality

Jawah Gerdy, Amazon
19 January 2007
  • Summary: This camera has all of the options that you would want in a mini-dv camcorder - 32x zoom, camera light, light weight, compact, very user friendly, good battery life, and great ease of use. However, all of these extras do not matter because the recorded video quality is horrible. My five year old Kodak digital camera which has a video record mode as a "bonus" provides better video quality.

Not happy

H. G. B. Kamalapur, Amazon
13 August 2006
  • Summary: The Camcorder which I bought, has been displayed as it include a remote comtrol, and when I received the product I found that it is optional (Which is mentioned in the Manual!! which I cannot read untill I open the BOX!!). when I followedup with all, I got refund of 32$ not the missing part. The quality of the camcorder is worst, it has high noice in every mode. Overall If I would give 0 star, but I dont have thaty option here.

Good, BUT, could be better indoor video and have more jacks.

Dr. Johnny Fever "WKRP", Amazon
10 June 2006
  • Summary: The GOOD: digital audio 16-bit sound is great; 'zoom' sound level increase works well; love the joystick controls; manual adjustments are good. Outdoor video is good. Tiny battery. Very very lightweight. 30x zoom rocks - WHEN you use a TRIPOD! The BAD: No microphone jack. No S-Video jack. No earphone / headphone jack. Moderate to low light video is cr*p compared to my 8-year old Sony Hi8 camcorder.
