Great camcorder for electronic news gathering and independent filmmaking alike
'With Instant AF enabled, the autofocus works quickly, and the Push AF, which activates an Instant AF override in manual-focus mode, speeds manual focus considerably.'
'the manual gain dials for right and left channels are a little strange in their graphics, making potting up and down a bit disorienting'
'it's actually one of the most compact semi-pro models (and at $3,500, with an additional $250 rebate until June 30th, it's also the most affordable).'
'In bright light you will not be able to shoot noise free'
'I found it difficult to judge the camcorder's focus, even with the image magnification tuned on.'
'A high-end Leica lens provides excellent detail and color, and the flash that sits behind the lens can swivel into place when needed'
'The mini wired remote, with its own record, zoom, and photo buttons, is a welcome bonus for lefties.'
'The zoom switch, however, is the worst control on the camera and is difficult to manipulate with any finesse.'
'extremely compact, consumer-priced MiniDV camcorder'
'The Panasonic PV-GS250 has a good selection of features that make it an attractive option for those who like to tinker with settings.'
'LCD is average'
'no built-in flash'

'Another questionable design decision puts the FireWire and USB ports for transferring video to your Mac under the battery.'
'GR-D72 looks great on paper, but it proved frustrating to use.'

'It was easy to get used to shooting with the DSR-PD150, and the camera was very forgiving.'

'While you're not likely to convert Elura footage to film'
'This classic design was used in the first digital camcorders and is now coming back into popularity.'
