Panasonic NV GS17

AdvantagesZooming in feature, size, functions

DisadvantagesSo far, none

"...an excellent product made by panasonic (as always), and enables you to carry out many tasks on a small, compact piece of equipment. Playback can be seen on the actual video recorder or can be plugged in to the Television to watch on their. Last thing to be reviewed is the instruction manual - upon getting this i was firstly unaware of how to operate it, so i went to the instruction manual for help. It had detailed information on how to use the ..." Read review

Entry level camcorders shouldn't be this good!

AdvantagesHuge zoom, compact size

Disadvantagesno memory card

"...After the hugely successful GS11, panasonic have launched its replacement, the GS17. Now this is not the smallest, lightest camcorder by far, however, the quality it produces is easily comparable to camcorders further up the range. The main selling point of this camcorder is its huge optical zoom. At 24x this beats the sony HC19 (20X) which was seen as a big step forward. This size zoom gives so much more flexibility to the type of recording you ..." Read review

Panasonic NV GS17 Cheap buy

AdvantagesGood optical zoom

DisadvantagesStruggles in low light

"I purchased this Panasonic about 4 weeks ago after my old JVC of 5 years service finally packed up. Why did I buy the Panasonic. Two reasons. Firstly it is one of the cheapest camcorders on the market. I bought mine from Dixons for just over 200 pounds. Secondly for the high optical zoom. At 24x not much on the market to match that. The Panasonic is very small and fits nicely in the palm of your hand and is very light. All the controls are easy ..." Read review

Panasonic NV-GS17

AdvantagesEasy to use for basic use

DisadvantagesNot easy to use for computer use

"The camera itself excellent. The controls are simple and the size is excellent; it doesn't take up much space in a bag. Transferring the video to a simple VHS produces brilliant and almost 'broadcast quality' results. However, transferring the video on to your PC took someone like me (without advanced knowledge) a considerable amount of time. Provided with the camera is a manual, AC mains lead and AV lead (for connecting to video/TV). There ..." Read review

Poor VHS Cam

AdvantagesGood Quality

DisadvantagesUnable to transfer any videos onto computer

"I found this product extremely disappointing. I purchased it for filming family wedddings/parties. in my experience the quality of the camera was good, but after spending £15 on cables to connect to usb and firewire and being told it worked with windows movie maker i found myself very disappointed. I tried to upload about 15 minutes of film onto my laptop (memory and cpu etc wasnt a problem as i easily uploaded fromanother video camera) after 7 hours ..." Read review

Not recommend

Advantagesprice, size, 24x zoom

Disadvantageslow image quality no firewire & usb cable, no software, difficult manual for PC connection

"I bought this digital camcorder in order to be able to capture video on my PC. Imagine my surprise when I found out that no firewire, USB cables and software were included in the package! So after I bought seperately all these items and finally trasferred some videos onto my PC I had another negative surprise: the quality of the video was poor. A lot of image noise even under medium light conditions and annoying orizontal lines when the object in ..." Read review

the best amateur camcorder ever

Advantagesbrilliant value

Disadvantagesdoesn't look the best

"...After the hugely successful GS11, panasonic have launched its replacement, the GS17. I have not bought one but have played with my friends constantly The quality it produces is easily comparable to camcorders further up the range, however I do own the GS15 and cannot see much difference. The main selling point of this camcorder is its huge optical zoom. At 24x this beats the sony HC19 (20X) which was seen as a big step forward. This size of zoom ..." Read review
