Panasonic PV-GS35


CCDType: Single CCD, Video Recording Format: DV Tape

30X optical zoom. Tape can be removed from top of camera.

No mechanical image stabilization. Mediocre video quality. Autofocus could be better.

The Panasonic PV-GS35's only real draw is its powerful optical zoom, but even that's pretty much undone by the lack of image stabilization.

Panasonic PV-GS35 First Impressions Review - Panasonic MiniDV Camcorders


The Panasonic PV-GS35 is the top of the line of this year's Panasonic one-chip camcorders. While maintaining the same body design and imager that the PV-GS31 and the PV-GS19 retained from last year's one-chip GSs, the PV-GS35 adds some features which...

Camcorder Review: Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV


This is a compact size camcorder that is big enough to handle easily, but small enough to accommodate an on-the-go lifestyle. It has enough features to keep shooters busy, too. One of the niftiest features on this camera is the joystick

S-Video Connector (out only) Mic Input Accurate Color

Jerky EIS at full zoom Limited input options Difficult manual operation

The biggest shortfall is the limited input options--the only way to input video onto the camcorder is through the FireWire jack. On the other hand, most users will find the zoom capabilities a worthwhile trade-off. Overall, we found it to be a great...

Panasonic PV-GS35


The PV-GS35 features the same 1/6 inch CCD with 680K pixels, as found on last year's PV-GS15. Panasonic hasn't made any changes to last year's imagers, and video performance has by and large remained the same. The main changes to this year's Panasonics...

Panasonic Palmcorder Multicam PV-GS35


Panasonic PV GS 35 is competing with Sony's DCR HC-32 in terms of price range. When it comes to picture quality/ zoom/ and manual control, there isn't any comparison; Panasonic beats Sony in every compartment. Sony does offer touch screen control on...

Fun Camera


This Camera is great for all of the simple filming I've wanted to do. (I'm going to try to make a movie with it next year, and I'll let you know how it turns out, I don't expect it to preform well, but then it's not designed to). So far the main fault...
