Summary: We purchased this camera over 3 years ago. Picture quality is very good, and playback is very stable. We've used it primarily for video taping the grandkids. We recently purchased another one as a gift for our daughter. She loves it too.
Summary: I LOVE, Love, Love my camcorder. I have not had any problems and we have used it on boats, low lighting, outside gatherings & etc..... We have filmed several weddings for the family with this camcorder and everyone loved them. We aren't professionals but we have had alot of fun with this camcorder.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
