|Panasonic PV-GS500 MiniDV camcorder - 8/22/2006|
|The Panasonic PV-GS500 (Best Current Price: $643.95) is a fine piece of equipment: it offers great control, excellent video quality, and broad operational flexibility. And although it’s at the high end of the feature scale, it’s moderately priced for what it offers.
The highlight of this camcorder is its video quality: it got top marks in tests, in both normal and low-light conditions. The video has bright, accurate color and plenty of fine detail. The 16:9 wide-screen video looks equally impressive, and the excellent 2.7-inch wide-aspect LCD screen makes it easy to see what you’re shooting, even outdoors.|
