Intro

Panasonic-PV-GS65_vanity.jpg
Panasonic’s new PV-GS65 breaks the under $600 barrier, making it the lowest-priced 3 CCD Panasonic camcorder ever. It is equipped with the same imagers found on last year’s PV-GS120, but has some upgrades from last year’s model, including a new menu system, better navigational control, and a more stream-lined body that is easy operate with one hand. Panasonic has taken off the "Leica" lens to reduce the price. Like last year's batch, Panasonic’s new PV-GS65 3 CCD camcorder produces great video quality at an affordable price.
