Amazing little camera

  • Summary: I had this camera for 5 years already. Very nice piece of equipment, we managed to make a film using this camera. Very nice response. Sharp image and easy to control. It gets a little distortion near the wide end of lens (1x-2x), but its manageable. Really enjoyed built-in stereo mic. In any way, I am really glad I got this camera.

  • Summary: I love this camera. for the price, i believe it is one of the best investments you can make in amateur videography. If you are looking for a camera to film action sports(skate,snow,bike)it is also directly compatible with the century optics or opteka baby death fisheye

  • Summary: My Camera PV-GS85 is a little over a year old, I did not use it for about 4 months took it out and DEAD, No lights at all even with a fully charged battery, and Power Cord. It has never been exposed to extreme heat or cold or dropped. I took it to a local camera shop to make sure it was not me, they said it was DEAD and would have to be sent to Panasonic.

Not impressed

Wortsh, Amazon

  • Summary: I am not impressed with this camcorder. Let me summarize why: 1) If you want to connect your camcorder to your computer, you will need to remove the battery. As a matter of fact you need to remove the battery, if you want to hook it up for any reason. 2) You cannot charge the battery and use the camcorder on ac power at the same time. 3) It may take still pictures (the 85 does), but the quality is mediocre. It compares to a 1.3 MP camera in a cell phone, if that.

Very Good Camcorder - Recommended

C. Hill "CFH", Amazon

  • Summary: The "Panasonic GS85" is a great camcorder for most general uses. We had a need for a second video camera on a shoot of an instructional video for our small business and ended up borrowing a friend's GS85 for a few weeks of heavy taping. Overall, the camera performed very well and exceeded most of my expectations for ease of use and quality, with the following observations: Pros - Good image quality * Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) works very well Accurate auto White...

not sure if any GS85 is as faulty

E. KUZMIN, Amazon
5 September 2008
  • Summary: as mine. but mine possibly seemed to have poor (defective?) cmos sensor. As a result. autofocus was extremely slow and also resolution dropped too low even in the shade, not mentioning real low light. Overall picture quality in SP was worse than with my old Panasonic with same 680kpix sensor in LP. Maybe just my bad luck... Great features are: fantastic OIS; VERY comfortable finger controls; webcam capability.
