Score 9.0/10
Good points:
For fast moving images its the best dv camcorder out there. Its a shame that its been discontinued. Panasonic are not replacing it !!!!!
Bad points:
You have to remove the battery to get to the power and firewire ports so this dismisses its portability. i have to carry the power cable at all times!!! terrible design! For some reason it had to have the assembly drum replaced after one month

Manufacturer's Description

3CCD and 10x Optical Zoom Mini DV Camcorder

The NV-GS330 records onto miniDV tape and comes equipped with a trio of features that assure exceptionally high image quality. These include the 3CCD camera system, which is commonly used in professional broadcast equipment, Panasonic’s unique O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), and a superb Leica Dicomar lens.

Panasonic has downsized its professional 3CCD camera system for use in consumer models. In a 3CCD camera system, the light received through the lens is split into its three primary colour components (red, green and blue), and the signal from each is processed by one of the three CCDs. Compared with conventional 1CCD camera systems, Panasonic’s 3CCD system provides more vivid, true-to-life colours, greater detail and richer gradation.

The Leica Dicomar lens provided in the NV-GS330 features 12 lens elements in eight groups and uses low-dispersion optical glass to reduce the blurring of colour. A special multi-coating process is applied to the 14 lens element surfaces to minimize chromatic aberration, so images are crisp, clear, and free of flare and ghosting.
