Customers interested in the best that camcorder technology has to offer will be impressed by the new compact PV-GS65 3CCD camcorder from Panasonic.

The PV-GS65 is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but isn't short on innovative features. Equipped with a 3CCD imaging system, high-powered digital still capability and ease of use, this new digital video cameras will deliver high-quality digital still and moving images for the novice and expert videographer alike.

This top-of-the-line camcorder incorporate the same type of 3CCD imaging system used in Panasonic's celebrated professional camcorders. Individual CCDs are used to reproduce the red, green and blue colors that compose an image for vivid, true-to-life pictures with remarkable depth and presence.

High-resolution digital still images can be captured via the PV-GS65' built-in digital still camera feature, which records to a stamp-sized SD memory card. The 1.2 megapixel PV-GS65 features a 10x telescopic optical zoom lens; a 700x digital zoom that allows for amazing 700:1 clear, close-ups from wide angle to full telephoto zoom; and a macro zoom feature, which lets users shoot extreme close-ups at distances as near as 40 centimeters. To steady shaky video, the new PV-GS65 incorporates the digital electronic image stabilization (EIS), which compensates for unintentional hand and camcorder movement.

Transferring recorded video to a PC is also quick and easy via the USB port.


MiniDV: The MiniDV format records high-quality digital video on small tapes, allowing for an exceptionally compact camcorder body.

3CCD: Three imaging devices pick up true-to-life color with separate CCDs for the reds, greens and blues that compose an image. The result is great detail with up to 540 lines of resolution.

Digital still mode: Use your camcorder as a camera to shoot 1.2-megapixel digital images to SD memory-perfect for email.

2.5" LCD: The 2.5" LCD screen delivers a clear picture of the action during recording and playback.

Zoom: The 10x optical zoom lets you get up close while you're shooting, even when you're far away from your subject. The additional 700x digital zoom lets you hone in on the details before or after shooting.

Image stabilization: The image stabilization system keeps movies steady and smooth?no more jerky baseball games.

Soft skin mode: Smooth out skin in close-up shots to make every subject look great.

Zoom microphone: Make sure your movies sound as good as they look. The zoom microphone tracks with the optical zoom so your sound stays with the subject, not the videographer.
