Although it has some weaknesses, the GS150 delivers quality video via its 3CCD sensor, in a tidy package that is very easy to use.

3CCD sensor delivers quality video, easy-to-use menus, 2.3 megapixel still capture

Relatively poor low-light performance

At AU$1,759, it's a good deal with a varied set of features that would satisfy most consumers.

3CCD at a low price point ; Built-in flash ; Much improved menu

Average night performance ; Limited burst mode

I have owned mine for 2 years and on the whole I rate this as a great home handicam - provided you shoot in good light a lot of the time and have steady hands. The image stabilising is not great but is functional. Indoors and especially in lowlight the...

The picture quality in good light is absolutely stunning. It's better than HD cameras costing more. I am honestly amazed at how stunning outdoor and bright light scenery looks

Under indoor it struggles a bit even on the manual setting. But all handicams do ; Image stabiliser gives a slight 'shimmy' to the image sometimes but is still very functional

The gs150 is a brilliant budget camera. The three ccd's make it one level above your average camera and its small and portable size is great. The headphone jack is great for monitoring audio while recording. The recorded image is brilliant compared to...

Light and portable LCD very accurate to final image 3CCD sensors deliver sharp image Headphone input useful for audio monitoring Built-in flash for photos Menu is simple and easy to use

Low-light and indoor performance is a disappointment Not many manual controls
