Great camera and Superb quality image.

6765jeeps, Ebay
22 September 2011
  • Summary: Note: I have this model of camera for sale.. Sept. of 2011 (full disclosure). This camcorder produces stunning color and a very clear picture.... amazing compared with my other two camcorders! Great modestly priced Camcorder. There is a review that mentions that the battery must be removed to import and export. . . this is not so. I've exported many tapes of video using the camera with battery power and I did not remove the battery to do this.

Example of what a mini digital camcorder should be

stellamojo, Ebay
8 June 2008
  • Summary: I own 3 of these now, because it was, when it was being made, an easy to use camera with all the extras. When I bought my first GS70, even though I was a novice, I was able to take it out and make awesome video. I can't say enough about this camera, except do NOT drop it on a concrete floor. It won't withstand that.

good with some cons.

  • Summary: This model is a down grade version of pv-gs300; it does not come with extenal-mic input and headphone jack. It does not come with analog-digital conversion functionlity. Besides, all in/out terminals are designed to be the place the battery attachment so you must remove the battery to do video in/out from your camcorder. Otherwises, it seems great.

Product adapability

helper_john, Ebay
31 July 2006
  • Summary: This product has functioned very well for my needs. Specifically wanted to be able to convert analog to digital and this does a very good job on this. The camcorder is also sufficiently small to use on the go and yet feel substantial enough. I do not recommend using for still pictures since it does not have enought power.

Better color?... Don't believe the hype.

Robert Holbrook, Amazon
14 June 2004
  • Summary: There are a lot of features about this camera that I like (alluded to in other reviews), but the vivid colours due to 3ccd technology is not one of them. I did a side by side comparison with my buddy's 3 year old Canon single-ccd and guess what? When played back thru his tv, my tv, my video projector, etc. his looked better. First of all, the resolution of the image seemed much better, and the colours were more accurate than my PVGVS70.

Good color reproduction and cheap for a 3ccd camcorder

Robert Holbrook, Amazon
19 May 2004
  • Summary: I would recommend this product over the pv-gs120 as they took this camera and stripped it down to be able to market it at the $700 price point, you will not lose anything by getting this camera. As for the image stabilization, the newer models are not any better. The trick is that most of the time it will not work unless the following circumstances are met, the camcorder must have a direct light source (indoor rarely works for me) and the unit must be able to focus on an...

Great Color / Features / Useability

Harold E. Hill "Videohog", Amazon
13 April 2004
  • Summary: I'm new to the world of video but have a lot of experience putting complicated technology into people's hands. The GS70 is very nice to use out of the box. However, as you grow into it over time, it also has quite a bit of manual control for optimization. I agree in principle with most of the previous reviewers except that I havn't had any breakage or problems. This camcorder has great spectacular color.

Nice, but...

"drbuckhardy", Amazon
22 December 2003
  • Summary: Nice camera for all of the above stated reasons. One serious flaw for a highly portable camera, DURABILITY. This camera can not tolerate humid / moist environments. I was overseas and used the camera sporadically. Some of the environs were misty weather (NOT raining). Upon returning state-side, I discovered the camera was dead. Panasonic repair returned the camera as a total loss, stating that there was water damage to the mainboard, which was irreparable.

The best mini dv no matter what the price...

Not an Impulse Buyer "Serres", Amazon
3 December 2003
  • Summary: When you consider all the features of this really tiny camcorder that weighs just a little over a pound, there is no question that it is the best mini dv product out there. The picture clarity is just incredible. Sharp and colorful video in almost any situation. I live near Washington DC and I go with the kids to the National Mall and to the Smithsonian every couple of months or so.
