Review Panasonic NV GS230

 

Panasonic GS230 record with 3 recording chip (3 CCD) and offers a high resolution color so that is more realistic. Anti-blur is another advantage. Pictures appear more focused on the electronic model of Panasonic GS60. The lens provides the opposite...

For the price, this is A1. NOT a professional camera, but not aimed at that market OR price either. Great quality images in most conditions. Simple to use with a good navigation and menu system. Bought in preference to the HDD and hybrid models cause...

Great camera , nice and compact. The image quality is amazing with colours represented accurately and pin sharp..The software for downloading the videos from the camera is easy to use and works well.

The camera does prefer good light as images can be a bit grainy in low light. The battery that the camera is supplied with only last for about an hour.

Good

 

I bought this camera to use as a deck to upload my footage from my larger prosumer cameras. I went for this as it was a 3CCD camera which I could use as a back up for my bigger cameras as well as a deck for uploading footage to my computer. Compared to...

Compact size and easy to use functions.

For a 3CCD camera I thought the image quality was average.
