This "GS400 stupid information" comes from some of us speculating using contradictory specs posted on Panasonic websites from Santa's North Pole home to the Tasmania. That's why I suggest to only go with those few specs that Pana sent me, and anything you may find on the Pana Japan website link Allan provided.

God! I'm glad that SOME MODERATOR has finally admitted that the majority of posts recently on this board about the GS400 are TOTALLY MADE UP! Get real people.

Guy, I don't like misinformation either, but what can you do when some people have their opinions based on faulty Pana bablefished translations? I've been stung before with posting false information, and this information was straight from Pana and JVsee! Even Sunny has posted falsehoods on their sites at times, though Pana US and JVsee US seem to have been the worst offenders over the years. Can, on the other hand has always presented cam specs cleanly, except with their resolution claims---all lies! :-))

Get real, Frank. Are you going to moderate this board, or what?

Guy, I was being real. A couple of times, JVsee US had posted 1/3" CCD when it was a 1/4" CCD. Pana posted 300X optical zoom. Sunny posted progressive scan CCDs for video when in fact it was only 15fps and meant for stills. Can' claimed for years that all their cams have 525 lines of resolution because they are NTSC cams. Etc.

It's not just Tommy and myself that moderate here, but other wrangles as well. When something goes too far over the line, and this line is never in 1 place, I have to edit it or remove it. Furthermore, I cannot choose my friends as a moderator, and I have to respect everyone; but this is what I try do in life anyway.

Members are free to post here, and whether they are right or wrong doesn't matter. However, it's up to all of us to help and correct each other.

Either wait for it, or buy your PV-DV953 now. Isn't your ZR20 still working okay? Consider holding off, shooting more run and gun, and when the time is right, go for it! :-))

Guy, compared to other forums and sites this is the premier operation so far as DV is concerned (MHO)

Frank and Tommy dispense wisdom interlaced with some wit. Frank is an old hand at separating BS from fact but is known to never have a heavy hand, he lets event run their course. Don't let his gentle touch fool you.

For this Frank and Tom have my upmost respect and Chris and gang get the award for most valuable site. While most other sites are driven by monetary gain, this site is fueled by knowledge, truth and sharing.

for 1200 bucks you can assume 3 1/4" chips, a 43mm lens. No HD.

What the panny will have over the sony will be the 16x9 "cinema wide mode" which looks pretty decent.

It's the gs100 except for bigger lens and chips (we hope). Was the gs100 lens 37mm? I owned one and I can't remember.

I guess 58mm lens is asking too much lol...

Add an xlr and a sennheiser and you could consider it the dvx's lil brother. 30p and 24p and very similar in look and as look as you don't have to transfer to film (30p is not good for this) it'll look pretty good.

The day after I buy this thing Canon will toss out the GL3...lol...
