The Panasonic PV-GS90 is a miniDV camcorder with 42x Optical Zoom, Advanced Optical Image Stabilizer,Built-In LED Light and One-Touch Navigation, Records to MiniDV Tape. This piece is relatively inexpensive compared to its counterparts from other brands in the market. Its 42x zoom is somewhat more powerful than similarly priced camcorders. It supports manual focus, which is a more advanced feature. It also weighs just about 13.8 ounces. The most similar camcorder to it is the Canon ZR950, which retails at the same price. A big difference between the two is that the Canon camcorder supports still image recording at 1.07MB, this one, disappointingly, doesn't. But overall critics assert that it is good value for money.
