Summary: Works great. VERY Happy and satisfied. Just what I needed. Fast and prompt service. I bought this product because i already have 2 of them for school use. He didn't have a battery, but i already have 3 batteries for the 2 I already own. I need this exact model so i don't have to buy new batteries.
Summary: My first experience with the Panasonic was good. It taped well and when I proceeded to make a DVD, I noticed the sound started cutting out periodically. So I took the tape and put it in another camcorder I purchased on ebay and the tape worked fine and I got my DVD made successfully. The second time the camcorder was used, it taped well (picture was clear) but there was no audio.
Summary: The Panasonic PV-GS9 is very compact and easy to use. I bought it to replace an older version. It uses the same battery and connections as my older recorder. The battery life gives you well over 60 minutes on recording time. The connections for the PC and firewire and a little difficult to get to but overall a great recorder for the price.
Summary: I am use to the expensive sony vx2000 i have and this camera does not have as many features but is still a great mini dv camcorder. I was sad to realize that this was going to be my capture camera and I wish I had bought it a long time ago. I will deffinitly use it for some second angles!
Summary: I loved that this was easy to use, I am a begginner and it is very simple to use its light weight and small so it will fit in your purse or bag and youwont miss a minute to set up anything has a place if you have a tripod to minimize shaking great picture as well
