    The price is usually related to things like CCD size, max optical zoom, DV in, physical size, etc. - and then of course there is brand premium pricing (e.g. Sony >£ than Samsung).

    Both of the Cams you mention have similar specs (1/6CCD 800k?) and I dont think you will notice much difference in pic quality. (There isnt that much difference between a £1000 model and £300 model in good sunlight.)

    Panasonic has agressive pricing in the camcorder market (like the projector market) and its not a reflection on quality - just a marketing decision.

    Of course this is just general comment. Your best bet is to find a review of the two models in question.

    okey thx...

    panasonic has microphone and headphone socket too,and it's also cheaper... and i haven't found a review about panasonic gs11 yet:(

    and still a question:
    - JVC has digital colour night scope (0 lux)
    - panasonic has color night view,so it needs 2 lux min illumination
    how big is the difference?so... is 2 lux for min illumination good?

    If I should trust what I have read then "lux" is something the companies determine themselves. So you can not compare one brand to another...

    Correct me if I am wrong...

    I'm looking for a £400 camcorder myself and from the internet you can pick up the very well thought of JVC GRD53 & GRD73. I'm am seriuosly considering one of these models above the Pansonics and the Canon 750i.

    Look at the review for GRD on camcorderinfo.com (might be a lower model) but they really like it. It's low light capability looks superb. A bit factor filming indoors (weddings / pubs / christenings) where light isn't allways perfect)

    What Camcorder raving about the 73 this month as well. Looks like JVC really have got their act together. For me it looks a better option than the £400 Sony camcorders.
