Panasonic NV-GS320 review

 

Panasonic chalks up the positive points

Soloid autofocus ; Good detail and balance

Too much jitter ; Features are overestimated

We really like the range of features on offer on the GS320 as they're targeted at the creative moviemaker. Unfortunately the image and audio performance doesn't quite live up to the hype. So it's a good, just not great, result for this Panasonic model

Very Nice Quality

 

I bought this to replace a VHS-C camcorder I had for years (which was much simpler to go from high quality VHS-C to VHS). The included software is good for editing and burning with smaller video clips with little or no compression or if you don't mind...

This camcorder makes beautiful videos and good pictures. Great for family events. I love the overall smal size and functionality of this camcorder. Very easy to use (for basic operations). Lot's of features - just be sure to read the manual

Included software is not the greatest to go from a larger size miniDV file to DVD in good quality. If you want a higher quality (i.e. a movie the size of 1 mini dv to fit on 1 dvd), good luck as a 90 minute miniDV in high quality records as .AVI and is...

Panasonic PV

 

Excellent picture. Good display. Good battery life. I need to step it up to next level because of the audio input not available on this camera

Should have been a little more observant when buying. I read everything but overlooked the fact that there was no audio input. Therefore my shotgun mike and wireless mike were rendered useless

Great Camcorder!

 

We lost our old PV-GS300 last year at the beach when our cottage burnt to the ground and we barely got out. It took a while financially to recover but finally we could buy another camcorder and I have to say this one is even better in most ways than...

Excellent picture quality, very clear and precise picture and color is very natural. Works well in low light and battery lasts longer than expected. Took shots of son's baseball game this past saturday and forgot the tripod. Video still turned out very...

Software that comes with it is not the most fully featured but that was expected. It does it's job though. Nothing really bad to say so far after two months

Bargain Price Dream!

 

Conclusion: Getting great video at this price is unheard of IF you can handle the Annoying Flaws.

Awesome color reproduction. 3CCD ; Superb video quality (comparable to $2K cameras) ; Price point @ sub 350$ is a steal ; Descent Low light Performance

Menu based controls can be a nightmare for some ; No focus ring control ; Cumbersome design flaws. (have to remove the battery to connect to PC....and other such sillies) ; No external mic or headphone input. (I just carry another audio recording...

My first vidcam

 

Firewire and USB transfer works fine. Coming off tape the transfers are in real time. This would be too slow for many people. I bought the A-Data 4GB TurboSD SDHC card and it works fine. Looking forward to sending a video to YouTube or others if I can...

I read reviews of a few vidcams and liked what I read here. I wanted great video quality and believe the 3CCD will give it. The video and pics I've seen so far with this vidcam look as good as I wanted. The included video software is appreciated. Seems...

My hands may be bigger than average and there is only about 3/8s of an inch of velcro grabbing a hold on wrist strap. I had to add some length to the lens cap string. Smaller hands will be able to operate the controls better. Other than that I can't...

Works with Mac =)

 

I made the mistake of purchasing a HDD camcorder pervious to this one. Vid quality is much better on DV and so much easier to edit with iMovie, Final cut pro. DV is still the way to go. especially you if you want to edit your video.

Great Camcorder. Nice quality in all lighting conditions. Nice features. Leica lens is very nice. Has USB and firewire. Works with iMovie

no accessory shoe.. but never used it anyway

Great Camera!

 

As long as it isn't a a short-lived camera like my canon elura 50 which died a horrible death at a young age, I will be very pleased!

images, decent low light images. 16:9 support is really cool

Lack of features that should be standard for even a budget camera. But I doubt I would have use those features enough anyways. Odd placement of ports, but oh well

Beware - design defect

 

I'v owned this camera for two months and since day one have had intermittent problems with camera not being recognized through firewire. Eventually no recognition through firewire at all but recognized through USB. Now USB is dead too. Panasonic knows...

Great sound and video. Decent video editing software included

Design defect in the firewire/USB interface
