Expert Review

 

If you want a great lens, vibrant colours and the ability to simply and easily send your video out to the Web--and don't need a large optical zoom--the Panasonic NV-GS250 should be near the top of your list.

Superb colour quality, true 3.1 megapixel digital still images, optical image stabiliser

Only 10X optical zoom

Panasonic NV-GS250

 

Panasonic's GS-250 is a great little camcorder, but its bundled software package doesn't do its general ease of use any real favours.

Quality lens ; Image stabilisation works well ; Good low-light shooting ; Strong microphone pickup

USB 2.0 only supplied cable ; Software manual in PDF format only
