he Panasonic PV-GS80 is an ultra-compact Digital Video camcorder that offers precise image quality and color accuracy. The superior quality of digital video yields higher horizontal resolution, sharper picture detail and component color sampling, which preserves more color information than analog.
The PV-GS80 has made the popular Mini-DV camcorder line even more user friendly. The 32x optical zoom lets you zoom in on items that are barely discernable to the naked eye without losing any image quality like you would with digital zoom. The integrated Optical Image Stabilizer, or O.I.S., detects even the slightest amount of shaking, and adjusts the lenses accordingly, to keep the image crisp and clear. Unlike a digital image stabilizing system, O.I.S. counteracts the shaking before the image enters the CCD; this allows the CCD to be used to process a virtually unmarred image.
