Video Performance* (6.25)
*The Panasonic VDR-D200 uses a 1/6" CCD with 680K gross pixels and 340K effective pixels. This is the standard set of entry-level imager specs from most manufacturers. At 3000 lux, the camcorder produced an image with vivid colors, but with a good deal of noise. This is not surprising, as all of the lower-end Panasonics this year leaned towards the noisy. If you insist on a very clean image, you can find better in this price range.
