Panasonic NV-GS300


Offering superb video quality under a wide variety of lighting conditions, the Panasonic PV-GS300 is an excellent choice if you typically shoot in automatic mode. Prosumers may find the limited choice and the awkward accessibility of the manual...

Excellent video quality ; Impressive low-light performance ; Effective image stabilisation

Relatively few manual settings ; Awkward joystick control
