Panasonic NV-GS200

 

One of the two most compact three-chip MiniDV cameras on the market.

Extremely compact for a three-CCD model ; Top-notch colour reproduction ; Solid manual controls ; Broad feature set

Poor low-light performance ; Mediocre stills ; Suboptimal image stabilisation

Editor's note: The Panasonic NV-GS200 is known as the Panasonic PV-GS200 in the US. .

SimplyDV Review: Panasonic NV-GS200EB DV Camcorder

 

Great 3CCD image quality, good physical handling, excellent range of functions. 20x digital zoom better than expected, top-loading of tapes.

500x digital zoom is useless, letterbox widescreen not outstanding.

At its price, the GS200 is an excellent 3CCD camcorder (as is the GS120) Picture quality is fantastic, and top-loading is the icing on the cake. This deserves a full rating!
