Editorial Review

The amazingly small, ultra-slim, and lightweight Panasonic SVAV50 is ready to capture your favorite moments in digital video and still photos wherever you roam. You can also use the SVAV50 as a digital audio player, voice recorder, and image viewer through your TV (using the included cradle). The SVAV50 is so small because it uses no tape--all video, images, and audio are stored on a tiny Secure Digital (SD) memory card. It also features 2-megapixel digital still resolution, 2-inch flip-and-twist LCD for reviewing your video and photos, and 2.5x digital zoom. This model (SVAV50A) comes in blue, but the SVAV50 is also available in silver (SVAV50S). Read more

Features

  • Pocket-sized MPEG-4 SD video camera, 2-megapixel still camera, and digital music player--weighs just .23 pounds
  • 2.5x digital zoom lens with night view capabilities
  • 2-inch LCD flips and twists up for viewing video
  • Built-in flash, mic, and speaker and includes 8MB SD memory card and stereo earphones with remote
  • Rechargable battery provides up to 1 hour of video recording time or 2 hours of music playback

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners.....
I got this for my birthday a while ago, and is my first of a couple of digital cameras that i like to use regularly. most other cameras only take aroung 8 to 15 mins of video with a high memory card but this one takes alot more. with a 512 mg SD card you can take over 1 hour of video and hundreds of pictures on high resolution. the "mp3 player" is a little low rate but its ok. and i never really used the voice recorder, but when i did test it it sounded ok except for a low static sound in the backround. if you do get it i suggest getting an extra battery, and at least a 256 mg card. Most of the problems that occur can be fixed with the manual, and if you have a dot on your screen that doesnt change its alright because it wont come out in the picture. 2 megapixels is a little on the grainy side, but you can print regular sized pictures without any of the grainy effect. Overall it is a very handy and useful camera for everyday use and catching those spur of the moment things.

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!
This is very poorly designed product, extremely user-unfriendly.The PC connection has to be snapped so tight till it almost breaks to make a connection.Buttons are very small.I have tiny fingers but still have trouble setting to the right mode and if you are not careful, you could be digital video-recording which takes all the memory in 1 minute instead of taking the pictures.The pics are very poor quality and DARK!!!DO NOT BUY this product, just buy a real digital camera or buy a real digital video recorder.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice little product
I recently bought this on sale (very good price I might add) and am going to be sending in for the rebate.For what I paid it is a great little product.It's nice to stick in your purse or bag and you have everything at your fingertips - voice recorder, camera, video and music.

4-0 out of 5 stars I like this camera!
Well, I just read other reviews and I was surprised!First of all, I had a USB cable that fit the camera and plugged into my computer, so I didn't have that issue.I'm sure I would've been frustrated as well if I had to go purchase one.Personally, I was able to edit and create movies on my computer with no problem, using the free software that came with my computer (Sony VAIO, 3 years old).So I guess maybe I was lucky, but I have had a very good experience with this camera.The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the picture quality on my movies isn't the greatest. This camera is a little outdated though, so I can't complain.Plus, for the price, it has been outstanding.

3-0 out of 5 stars PC connection issue rears it's ugly head
I've had this camera for 2 years now and for the price it has done alright.Recently though, just as someone had mentioned in an earlier review, it stopped connecting to my PC via the firewire.I plugged in a friends JVC and it worked fine, so I know it's not the computer or the cable.Its past warranty obviously... I don't think I'll pay to have it fixed.I just wish this would have lasted longer.Time for a better one - this time made in America !

5-0 out of 5 stars Camera Rocks !!
For the price this Camera Rocks !! I've had it for close to 2 years and for the price it's awesome.. I've used it to video tape Basketball and Football games .. Just an outstanding value.. The battery last at least over an hour .. Picture quality is great .. Check out some of my video at www.pleasantgrovesports.com .. Go to either Basketball or Football links .. click J.V. and then one of the kids last name for a short video clip..

3-0 out of 5 stars Small package and small performance
This camera specs well and packs a lot of features. Using the features can be difficult and in some cases, too easy. On several occassions, I have hit the photo button while trying to find the zoom button. The IEEE 1394 (firewire) port failed. While mounted on my tripod, you cannot replace the battery. The battery release is on the bottom of the camera which is obstructed by the tripod. The sound quality is marginal. I am being generous with a three star rating. If you plan to use the camera frequently, invest time understanding your objectives and match the capabilities of the camera. This camera is small and awkward for me to use. I was happy to receive it as a gift but would not have purchased it for myself.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera
This Panasonic DV camcorder is a solid performer and a great value. I've been using it for several months, and it hasn't let me down at all. Battery life is good, picture quality is great, and audio quality is acceptable.4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice...however......
I love the camera for the purpose of recording those unforgettable moments, but when using to take digital photos....it's not so good.The pictures have a very low resolution and when the photos are printed (from both photo center and my home printer) they look like a computer screen picture.Even with the light feature on, they aren't very nice printed. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars POOR!

1-0 out of 5 stars 96K effective resolution
the effective resolution of this camera is 96K, which is worse than most Hi-8 cameras. it supposedly has a 1/4 CCD with 680K gross, but this is probably myth. do not believe anything you see on camcorderinfo.com about this camera. 4-0 out of 5 stars Great deal on a DV
I got this DV Camera to tape some old Super-8 movies for conversion to DVD.Thanks to the low light performance and image stabiliaztion it did a great job.Then I shot some footage on the Santa Monica Pier and it did great in daylight as well.So for a low cost video camera you can't beat it.It's not a digital camera though go buy one if you want that.Still no firewire cable was a let down but you can get them cheap look for a 4-6 pin cable and get it hooked up for computer fun! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good product Not worth if you want to use it in dark
I would put this camera in 5/5 rating if the it could work fine in low light. In day light or in electric light even if not so bright, this camera does a good job.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Camcorder
I use this camcorder for my own videography business and have never had any complaints about the video quality.To get a better camcorder, you would literally have to pay twice as much money.
5-0 out of 5 stars Use an external light for low-light situations...
First off, this is an awesome camera for the price.There is no other camera in the same price range which will deliver this much performance and quality for the money.Those who talk about the low-light quality needs to go out and purchase themselves hotshoe light.Who in their right mind would shoot at 15, 30 or even 60 lux without an external light anyway?Picture quality will be greatly hampered.I believe that next to a spare battery, an external light source is probably the most valuable accessory you can own.This camera comes loaded with all the standard features of the other camcorders in this price range and also has a remote control included, which some of the competitors do not have standard.And on top of that, 3 CCD sensors!!!Simply put, you will not find a better camcorder for the price!Period. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Fixed it once, then broke again
After buying camera, worked fine then i started having to reset it constantly.I sent it in, came back working fine.Same thing started up again, and now i cant play back.Also, terrible quality when filming indoors.Very grainy.

4-0 out of 5 stars A little old, but still a great buy!
I bought this camcorder a couple of years ago, when it was the latest version of the pv-gs# series.It has proven a great purchase, with tons of features for a great price.
4-0 out of 5 stars great camcorder
THIS CAMERA IS GREAT FOR THE AMEATEUR AS WELL AS FOR THE MORE EXPERIANCED! FOR ME THIS CAMERA WAS PERFECT BECAUSE I EXPECTED A GREAT, EASY-TO-USE CAMCORDER FOR A LOW PRICE; THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BETTER CAMERAS IN ITS PRICE CATAGORY ($300-$400). I HAVE BEEN USING THIS CAMCORDER FOR OVER A YEAR, MAINLY FOR CREATING MOVIES THROUGH WHICH ITS GOOD FEATURES HAVE ENABLED ME TO BE WELL SATISFIED. I LOOKED FOR A GOOD CAMERA WITH DECENT SP-FX AND GOOD LIGHTING. THE LIGHTING FOR THIS CAMERA IS PRETTY GOOD AND SUFFICENT FOR WORKING WITH AT NIGHT. THE ZOOM IS A VERY GOOD FEATURE FOR THIS PRICE CATEGORY (24x) AND I HAVE USED THIS TO TAKE PICTURES FROM A CRUISE SHIP TO THE SHORE WHEN PORTING. I HAVE NOTICED HOWEVER (FOR MOST CAMCORDERS) YOU MUST HAVE A STEADY HAND WHEN ZOOMED IN ALL THE WAY AND FOR THE MORE EXPERIANCED FILM MAKERS A TRIPOD IS A MUST (THIS PERTAINS TO ALL CAMCORDERS HOWEVER(IN MY MIND)). THE CAMERA IS BUILT VERY WELL. I AM IMPRESSED THAT IT SURVIVED ME FOR OVER A YEAR. THIS HAS BEEN USED IN EVERY SITUATION THOUGHT POSSIBLE AND I HAVE FOUND NO DAMAGE YET. I ALSO ADMIRE THE SET UP VERY WELL. THE MENU IS SETUP INSIDE OF WHERE THE SCREEN FLIPS OUT AND THIS NOT ONLY MAKES THE CAMERA COMPACT BUT EASY-TO NAVIGATE/USE AS WELL. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CAMCORDER SET-UPS I HAVE SEEN WHEN LOOKING MAINLY BECAUSE EVERYTHING FEELS LIKE IT'S IN ITS OWN PLACE AND IT EASILY GRASPED AND FEELS GOOD ON THE HAND. I PURCHASED MINE FROM COSTCO FOR $300 LAST YEAR WHICH IS VERY CHEAP FOR THIS CAMCORDER, HOWEVER THIS WAS A SPECIAL AND IT DIDN'T COME WITH ALL THE ACCESORIES (NOT EVEN THE REMOTE) THAT THE REGULAR PRODUCT HAS. IF YOU WANT THESE ACCESORIES I SUGGEST YOU BUY IT FROM ANOTHER STORE FOR AROUND $350-$450. I HAVE DONE MY HOMEWORK ON THIS PRICE CATAGORY OF CAMERAS AND I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH MY DESCISION! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars This camera is perfect for what it's designed to do
The fact that this records files with an .mod suffix is irrelevant. When you rename them as .mpg files they are fine. Actually, Premiere Elements 2.0 doesn't even require you to rename them, it deals with .mod files just fine.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not Recommended
I own this this camera since February 2004. It is very well built, lightand handy, fits in any pocket.
5-0 out of 5 stars A great take anywhere Camcorder
The comment from reviewer "Xdeth" about using Ulead editing software is completely wrong.I've been using Ulead VideoStudio 8 to edit SV100 videos for over a year.Yes, as many others have stated, the ".mod" files need to be renamed to ".mpg" to use Ulead and much other software.

1-0 out of 5 stars Iv'e had it for a year and still can't get it to a dvd-r
These instructions suck!They leave out vital information on procedures (like the exporting and burning onto disks) and then stick it somewhere else in the book.It does not give the "how to" in step by step format. I have had this complicated mess for a year and still don't have it figured out.Recording is a breeze but getting it off your dvd-ram onto your computer is a load of crap and best of all I have yet to find a place that sells the magical dvd-r's that are compatible to this thing.I finally exported my recording from the dvd-ram into the software and now I will have to thumb through these instructions for daysto find out the small paragraphs just thrown about in bits and pieces throughout this manual to figure out how to save it to a dvd-r (wherever you find the ones that go with this fickle panasonic camcorder)

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't let the DVD name fool you - poor video quality
This camera uses MPEG-1 compression which is basically VHS quality, not MPEG-2 which is the current DVD standard of choice. Despite high pixel count for still images, MPEG-1 is only 352X240 and it shows. Also, software provided is PC only. Finally, the small (8cm) format discs don't play well in cheaper players.I've had problems where the small disc does not have enough mass to keep the spindle PLL in the player locked so the movie hesitates on playback. Very frustrating.All in all a big disappointment.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this camera!!!!!
If you are concerned with picture quality don't buy this camera.This cameras selling feature is that you can record to dvd.Which is does very well.The picture quality is very poor.The color fidelity and saturation is very poor.The detail in the blacks is non existent.If you are like me and tape the kids bithday party's, etc & want any kind of picture quality don't buy this camera.Most of my recording was being done under 3 60 watt light bulbs.Such as in a living room or kitchen. So there's plenty of light to work with. What you are paying for with this camera is the dvd recorder.As others have said the supplied software is useless.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera, great value
I bought this camera because it earned Editors' Awards from ... extremely reliable on their reviews.Considering that comparable models from other makers...were priced well above [$], the sub-[$]price was also a significant plus.5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera, one small problem
I was going on vacation and decided to get a videocam/still camera to record the festivities.After reading reviews from many different sites (epinion, various computer and video mag sites) I decided on the PVDV701.I have used it numerous times for still shots and video without a single glitch.The monitor is bright, the menu system easy to use, and the video quality is great.I have read some complaints about drivers and repairs.Maybe I've been lucky, but I also did things to prevent myself from getting in the same situation.I bought a 3rd party extended warranty which covers everything, including replacement of the unit, which anyone should do anyway for a 800 dollar investment.Also, I have experienced the same problem with the Windows XP drivers, but in foresight, I bought the Pyro Digital Video 1394DV card/software package at the same time.It included a firewire care and software for 69 dollars which is more than worth the investment.I get my video via Firewire and still shots via SD card and USB.Using USB to pull down video cannot be fast or good quality (this is just my opinion, considering the slow rate of USB data transfer).My videos come down at full speed, no dropped frames and highest quality audio that the camera will allow.1-0 out of 5 stars I recommend that you stay away from this unit.
I purchased this unit because I liked the features and the price was reasonable. It comes with a light that fits in the hot shoe, and a remote control. It has both digital and analog inputs/outputs, and USB & firewire interfaces. However, my experience has not been good. Thirty days after my purchase, I used it for the second time. I noticed a dead spot in the video. I contacted Panasonic Customer Service and they instructed me to send it to the Service Center for repair. Well, as of 4/3/02 they have had it for three weeks and they are still waiting for a part. Worse yet, they said that they are consolidating the Factory Service Centers and it will be 7-10 weeks before a technician is assigned to repair the unit. In my view that is ridiculous. They will not replace the unit. Panasonic seems to be completely comfortable with this absurd repair time. I WOULD STAY AWAY FROM THIS UNIT, and any other Panasonic product unless you can get the retailer to extend their return policy to 60-90 days -in writing. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars a good camcorder for a good boy
This camcorder is good but not great. Sure its not expensive but with this amount of money you can get a much better one on ebay. 1/6 in ccd is average for this price range. It has no mic input. But it does last a good amount with the battery, has acceptional quality under lighting when i use two or more lights...for my movie aspire which is a musical. During shots that have fast sequences, you can tell as it looks jagged and not smooth. This had to be fixed in post, which, if you're only paying 250 for this cam, you probably won't waste your time fixing this in post. The manual white balance is nice.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for the patient mannered
This camcorder is absolutely wonderful. Though I don't think I'd pay top dollar for it. While it works great recording and playing back, there is minimum software availible ( Id didnt recieve any) and figuring out how to download it to the computer to burn to a DVD took a while. Though I only paid $195 for this camera that also came with a brand new camcorder bag and additional battery. I kinda wish I would have spent the extra money to invest in a DVD camcorder. But, if you are willing to take the time to learn how to burn to DVD, then this is a great camera!

4-0 out of 5 stars Camera
I bought this Camera for my 13th Birthday and I was happy until i tried to put the video onto the computer. I you realy want to edit video on the computer then you NEED to get Firewire for your computer.After I got Firewire The video worked fine, but I suggest you get a good editing softwear like Adobe. windows is ok to start but has very low video capture. When you burn it on to a DVD using windows is is all blury but can still make out picture. So a Great Camera but you have to get firewire to make it better. Firewire is only like 25$.I love this camera and I hope you will to. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Disregard these PV DV400 reviews
As of 8/13/2004 this camcorder (PV-DV400) is not available in the US.There are reviews here that date back to 2000, makes you wonder about the integrity of the reviews here at Amazon.

5-0 out of 5 stars BAHRAM is my boy.
I buied a handycam panasonic model NV-VZ10.4-0 out of 5 stars Got what I wanted...(that's a good thing)
I had done a lot of research here and on other sites. The three things I was looking for was price, optical zoom, and video & picture capability. I found an open box deal at Circuit City that beat any site (most sites were offering great deals, but on grey market items). Of all the digital camcorders I looked at, I really wanted one particular Sony model but I couldn't find a non-grey market deal that could convince me. I settled for this 18x optical zoom which does give me the quality pictures I want for email, plus the nice and sizable viewfinder. I wasn't looking to print so this is just what I wanted. The video recording is great. I received many compliments on the quality of the video. As for what I don't like about it, well the biggest thing is that I have the option to take pictures in "normal" or "fine" mode. It looked like the battery life was reduced to a 1/3 while in fine mode. Be carefull if your battery is already low and you try to use that mode. The only other thing I really didn't care for but deal with, is the manner in which I have to pull my pictures off the memory card. A little clunky but workable. Oh yeah, one other thing, a remote really would have been nice. I am still playing around with some of the other features and haven't been disappointed to this point. It's pretty light weight and packed with useful features. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars mechanically unsound
Feature wise this model is OK, although it is missing two key features: color viewfinder(useful under bright light) and analog input(dubbing analog tapes).However my unit has been having mechanical problems right after the waranty expired.The camcorder would refuse to load any cassette, more often than not the tape will get jammed inside the camcorder.I had to cut off one recorded tape (thus losing my recordings) to get it out of the machine.Switching different brand of tapes did not help either.I do not recommend this unit at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Feautures
The camcorder is pretty easy to handle, it's a standard horizontal layout but it's pretty small. You can also save 30 second MPEG-4 clips to the SD cards.The 1.3 Mega Pixel CCD is better than the 1 Mega Pixel on the Sony DCR-TRV25 and the 1 Mega Pixel on the JVC GL-DV820U.The camcorder has an IEEE 1394 Firewire in/out port to transfer your video from your camcorder to your computer digitally. The camcorder also has a composite in/out port and an S-Video out port. The PV-DV702 also has a headphone jack. The PV-DV702 also has a microphone jack. Another neat feature on the PV-DV702 is an audio dubbing mode (only with SP video) which allows you to re-record the audio over pre-recorded video. You can also use the PV-DV702 as webcam using the USB port. Working with Microsoft NetMeeting or similar web cam software, the PV-DV702 can be hooked up to a computer to use it as web cam or a videophone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This is a tourist-camera body with a professional output!I use this camera for commercial video and public access cable TV.I've taken this camera on vacation all over the world.On a flat panel TV, people always remark how incredibly good the resolution is on this camera, in all sorts of lighting environs.One of the standouts is the excellent lens and the sharp autofocus.It also rocks with a steadicam.My next camera is going to be a lot less fun because it is more bulky.

5-0 out of 5 stars Prosumer for less than $900!
I won't go into all the technical specs of this camera because the other reviewers have already done an excellent job of doing that. I bought my pv-gs200 2 years ago and it's really an amazing and value packed product. They're a little tough to find new now but I would imagine a refurb would be of equal quality. The #1 reason why I purchased the gs200 is because it has a manual focus ring. I can use it for stills and full motion video. This is a huge benefit, especially in low light shots. The color reproduction on the GS200 is spot on. I recently shot a family reunion at a beach in Long Island NY and discovered that if you capture the video in an uncompressed format using an app like Sony Vegas, you get results comparable to that of a higher end broadcast quality camera. For me, figuring this out was like unlocking the cameras true potential. I highly recommend this camera for the steady handed. It's ideal for tripod use too! Check out a video of my nephew picking his nose with both fingers, filmed with the GS200 and rendered as a an mpeg layer 2 file. http://www.robdrew.us/thepick.mpgHere's a link to a still I took with the GS200. It's a pic of the sun using no filters. http://www.robdrew.com/gallery/IMGA0502.JPG

4-0 out of 5 stars Turn off the Digital Zoom to get better EIS
The Digital Zoom is just useless for most camera! It is just a marketing sick joke. Turn off that stupid Digital Zoomm then your EIS will work a lot better ( try not to zoom all the way to 10X). If you need to get closer to the object then try to use a telephoto lense converter ( may be around $99 for a decent one). Over all I think this camera is doing very well! I would definately recommend it! Video quality is superb! Still camera is not bad if you need a quick shot at something. The user manual is a real joke though but the menu is very easy to use. Thing you may need beside the camcorder:

The Panasonic PV-DV401 is a no-frills camcorder that's ideal for anyone who wants a digital camcorder but doesn't need a lot of extras.

3-0 out of 5 stars Less than Thrilled with my PV-DV401
I was attracted to this camera when I was told I could insert titles with it.I was very disappointed to learn that it comes with a limited set of predefined titles (Birthday, Christmas, Graduation, etc.) and no way of creating my own as with my old S-VHS camera.I tried to contact customer service through their email address to ask about this and another problem - after a couple days I got an email back telling me to call during business hours.I find the thumb wheel that operates the menu driven options system ackward to use and frequently press the wrong button in the middle of trying to get to an option.4-0 out of 5 stars Great Digital Video Camera
I've produced several half hour shorts in digital video with this camera and am very pleased with the long lens, image stabilization, digital video format, low light and bright light imaging, built in stereo mics and external mic input, large LCD screen, and color viewfinder!!!4-0 out of 5 stars The Price is Right
I did a lot of research on digital camcorders on sites like cnet.com and consumerreports.org.I was leaning toward the Sony MiniDv's, but decided that the functional and quality differences was minimal, but the price difference was extensive.I having a digital camera, so still picture quality was not important.No camcorder gives high quality photos anyway.The DV401 had the larger LCD, color viewfinder, minidv size, and the magicVu that I was looking for. I recommend this as the right product for the right price!Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but needs improvement
I bought this camera after reading lot of reviews. This is the first video camera that I have bought. Few things which PV-DV910 lacks is that it does not come with any software so as to edit the Digital Video in the PC, nofirewire cables - even though it has IEEE1394 port for transfer. Eventhoughit says 300x digital zoom, the system does not go beyond 36x. Theperformance is very poor in low lighting. Out door in normal sunlight, itis great. Overall not too happy for the money that I paid for it.

The key features I liked - So small and light to carry around - The photos taken using the "photo shot" (transferred to PC using ATI pro TV card) are really so clear - excellent price (paid $750)4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Product
I got this camera as a christmas gift and have been using it 1-2 hours per week since then with no problems.I also purchased a firewire editor (studio dv) and it works great with the PV 910 allowing titles, soundeffects, non linear editing and much more.I love the light included withthe camera and the size/weight. I highly recommend it. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Better color?... Don't believe the hype.
There are a lot of features about this camera that I like (alluded to in other reviews), but the vivid colours due to 3ccd technology is not one of them.I did a side by side comparison with my buddy's 3 year old Canon single-ccd and guess what?When played back thru his tv, my tv, my video projector, etc. his looked better.First of all, the resolution of the image seemed much better, and the colours were more accurate than my PVGVS70.For instance, we both shot a yellow sign -- it came out orange with the Panasonic.4-0 out of 5 stars Good color reproduction and cheap for a 3ccd camcorder
I would recommend this product over the pv-gs120 as they took this camera and stripped it down to be able to market it at the $700 price point, you will not lose anything by getting this camera.As for the image stabilization, the newer models are not any better.The trick is that most of the time it will not work unless the following circumstances are met, the camcorder must have a direct light source (indoor rarely works for me) and the unit must be able to focus on an object.When the light is present, it engages and does a good job; otherwise, the display will just blink at you.Most reviews say "use a tripod," yea right!I did not buy this to put on a tripod or it would be a larger unit.I found outdoor use to be great (manual white balance as much as possible or you may get a Tele-Tubby world effect.)Pictures are average at best, but I did not buy this for the pictures (the flash is awesome, however.) 5-0 out of 5 stars Great Color / Features / Useability
I'm new to the world of video but have a lot of experience putting complicated technology into people's hands.The GS70 is very nice to use out of the box.However, as you grow into it over time, it also has quite a bit of manual control for optimization.I agree in principle with most of the previous reviewers except that I havn't had any breakage or problems.This camcorder has great spectacular color. It may also have slightly lower resolution than some of the single chip Sony's I've compared it with.I prefer the overall quality of the Panasonic because of the beautiful color.It also held its own when I taped a stage performace at our church in low-light mode.If you read forums, you can do even better with manual settings.The GS70 also has both microphone and a headphone stereo jacks -- features absent from comparable Sonys (new 04 models) and very important to me since I use remote mics.Tape-Toploading is also very nice.I have uploaded the video and edited in Premier without difficulty.Sound is good to my ears.I think this is agreat option for a hobbiest in the 500$ range.This camera is also small and light so you can take it with you anywhere.Batteries are small and last several hours.The manual is a bit on the arcane side until you catch on to Panasonic's format.The macro mode is very impressive.Bottom line -- Great color and useability with possibly slightly less detail in the images. ...
