5 out of 5 eggsBest quality video and still camera combo

Pros: I researched video cams for almost a year before finding this one. Twice before, when I tried to buy it, Newegg had sold out. Other places had it, but at a higher price and unknown service. Newegg notified me when it came in again, and I jumped on it. This camcorder is unbelievable! Outside, the colors are realistic. Auto focus works great, dual speed zoom is easy to use, the controls are all easily reached, very comfortable to hold and use. Indoors, late afternoon, with 2 west-facing and 1 north-facing windows, videos are fine, with very little noise in the shadow areas – much better than expected. The still camera function, ( which only works with a Secure Digital card installed, and is NOT INCLUDED ), is as good as most people will ever need. At the highest quality, the 512 mb Corsair SD card, also ordered for Newegg, will hold over 400 images. On a 32 inch television, these pictures look fantastic.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: You can transfer still images to your PC through the included USB cable. To send your video to your PC, you will need a Firewire cable ( also NOT INCLUDED ). Panasonic, and their 3CCD user forum says that the camera needs to use a 4pin to 4pin cable, which is fine for laptops, but most PC’s have a 6pin jack. Other users have said not to use a 4pin to 6pin cable. Instead, use the 4pin to 4pin with an adapter to maintain the continuity of the connection. The included video editing software has some nice features and is easy to use. You should have XP with SP2 for best results. The included narration mic and the remote control are great, too. To play back your video, just plug the camera into your TV with the AV cable, sit back and pick up the remote. Other single CCD camcorders may have infrared or night shot capabilities, but unless you’re doing surveillance, you won’t use those features anyway. The GS150 provides the best quality video and still camera combo for the money. The newer re

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Low End Cam

Pros: This camera is small and compact but shoots video with the same quality as much more expensive cams. I do professional shoots so this cam is great for the small jobs. The cam doesn't look like a pro cam so I get less lens lice, I can be shooting in a crowd and look like a tourist instead of a journalist which is a great advantage.

Cons: No built in lighting but then adding lighting is pretty simple.

Other Thoughts: Great for amateurs and pros alike. Easy to use, great quality video. If you want quality stills, buy a good still camera.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Camera.....but

Pros: After months of research this was the camera I choose. Several internet review sites out there put this camera as their #1 choice for this particular price range.
The camera works really well. I have used the camera indoors extensively in low lighting to tape my brand new baby girl. I then transfer the footage to my computer for editing and I have no experienced any quality problems. Even in low light situations. Compared to my friends JVC camera there is a very noticable difference in the crispness of the color quality.

Cons: I have no cons for the actual camera or Newegg however please see my other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: This is not the fault of Newegg in any way so this isn't directed at them but rather at Panasonic, the company behind this camera.
At the time I purchased this camera Panasonic was offereing a rebate. I filled out all the forms and immediately sent them in after recieving my camera from newgg. 4 months later I recieved a letter from Panasonic claiming that I had taken to long to send in the rebate form(which makes no sense because I supposedly had 30 days to do it and was sent before that) So with that in mind this is sadly the last Panasonic product I will ever be purchasing. Although I can recommend the camera I cannot recommned the company behind it as they are fraudulent when it comes to dealing with their customers. I hope Panasonic enjoys the fifty bucks they scammed from me because it is the last dime they will see from me for the rest of my life.

4 out of 5 eggsSick little Camera

Pros: I'm the first one to give this thing 4 stars so I'll try to refute this claim. First, the good stuff-- It is super small, looks great, takes beautiful video, is relatively inexpensive, is of excellent quality, and is certainly one of the best palmcorders out there. I was also pleasantly surprised with the intuitive and easy to use controls, not to mention the one handed operation. In short, this thing rocks.

Cons: There are some minor caveats which are expected for a camera of this price range. First, the digital still pictures are hardly stellar, especially in low light. They seemed just a bit grainy in all conditions. The video is also a poor performer in low light(small lense you know).

Other Thoughts: Looked around for quite a while before buying this camera, and I am quite happy with my decision.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Cam for Low Price

Pros: I am using this camera for a news gathering class in college. The camera performs equally as well as the much more expensive shoulder mount camera by Panasonic. The picture quality is fantastic for such a small unit. Easy to carry, works best on a tripod to keep it steady.

Cons: Digital zoom is not a good feature, makes the pixels larger and ruins the quality of the video.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this camera to anyone who needs high quality video at a low price.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy it... Love it...

Pros: Great color, with rich saturation. Works great in all but the lowest light conditions. Good battery life and fits nicely in the palm of your hand. Variable speed zoom was easy to get used to and makes for good control. The joystick for menu selections works very slick.

Cons: Forget optical zoom. Picture becomes too granular and image stabilization can't keep up.

Other Thoughts: Built-in 2.3M still camera works great and is icing on the cake.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent quality for price

Pros: Small, lightweight and very easy to use. With 3 CCD's, the digital quality is excellent. Compare this model at $x with other 3 CCD camcorders to realize the true value.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Low light usability is limited without an aftermarket light. This was clearly stated in the tech specs, so no surprise here. Make sure you purchase tapes, extra batts and a case.
