3 CCD Camcorder to BUY


Standard Member
I am thinking of buying a 3 CCD camcorder. Maximum budget is £1200. My prime objective is to have good video pictures. I have a good digital camera so I am not too bothered the camcorder taking high meg still photos. Please recommend some models.

Thanks. . I checked at Sony web site and weighs 1000gms. I find too big to take on holidays. The Panasonic model NVGS70B weights only 500gms.

I want good pictures and small enough to carry with three kids. Do you know any one who has the NVBS70B and would like to know its performances in terms of image quality. Thanks in advance.

Never used a Panny 3CCD & don't persoanlly know anyone with one ....sorry


Panasonic MX500 because of 16:9 anamorphic recording that differentiates it from Panasonic GS70, good manual controls, very portable.

Canon XM2 a little more expensive and bigger, still better video quality especially in dim light.


I have owned the Panasonic GS-70 since last summer and love it. It is small and easy to use. I did a lot of research and found it to be the best bang for the buck.
