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: 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.
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.
