A MiniDV video camera that sits right at the top of the consumer camcorder ladder.

Excellent quality video, easy to use PC transfer

Slightly short optical zoom

Expert review by : Ben Wolf (cnet.com.au)

Panasonic NV-GS500

 

While its predecessor had prosumer aspirations, the Panasonic NV-GS500 is strictly for casual videographers who want top-notch video on autopilot.

Great video and decent stills ; Nice zoom lens with effective optical stabiliser

A bit large ; Limited manual controls with poor accessibility ; Sluggish performance on auto ; No headphone jack

In low light, the video compares favourably with that of other consumer models but is noisy and somewhat muted by professional standards. The still-photo quality is also middling: Acceptable for a camcorder, but competitive with only the lowest level...

Its precursor, NVMX500A is brilliant. this may be good in other ways, but the lack of audio jack is appalling. There must be a way to design one to fit the AV Port
