'equally awkward touch screen'
'Good range of manual controls. '
'I’ve seen other camcorders that are built more user-friendly than the HDC-HS300, which has some hard-to-press buttons and a main zoom toggle that’s too small to use comfortably.'
'solid all-around performer'
'Still photos are almost unusable; unsurprising given the low resolution of the individual sensors.'
'The Joystick itself is sharp – it actually hurts!'
'The SX5 can copy from the SD card to a DVD with a single button press, and the SD5's firmware now allows it to communicate directly with a standalone DVD burner'
'chunky rectangular zoom slider'
'When activated, the camcorder continuously records three seconds of video by putting it into a cache, so you'll never miss that all-important goal or collapsing wedding cake.'
'No video light.'
'a cheap, lame hand strap'
'there's no built-in assist light for recording in dimly lit settings'
'Panasonic's MagicPix mode enhances indoor and low-light footage, making video more viewable, but since it slows the shutter speed, it also makes your video quite choppy in dim lighting.'
'no built-in flash'
'The PV-GS320's hand strap is hung so low that the camcorder flops to the side of the palm of the hand at an awkward angle.'
'Another questionable design decision puts the FireWire and USB ports for transferring video to your PC under the battery.'
'Another questionable design decision puts the FireWire and USB ports for transferring video to your Mac under the battery.'

'the size makes it difficult to hold steady.'
'Noisy video in low light'
'rather limited zoom range'
'lack of a photoflash'
'compact Panasonic PVGS65 digital camcorder'
'Video performance in bright light was decent, but hardly what you should expect from a 3 chip camcorder.'
'significant audio deficiencies include the lack of a headphone jack and full-time audio meters, both necessities for serious audio recording.'
'do not think AVCHD is a good consumer format at the moment due to its lack of broad support.'
'A small internal fan, designed to keep camcorder components cool, vents near the rear of the body.'
'the new camcorder's color is calibrated to closely match the calibration of Panasonic's pro cams'
