GS400 improvements over DV953

Hello,

I am a DV953 owner and contemplating the upgrade to a GS400. I am particularly interested to see what the low-light improvement is between DV953 frame mode 16:9 and GS400 frame mode 16:9 (w/cinegamma?). I was wondering if any of the current GS400 owners were once DV953 owners and could comment or post comparisons?

Thanks,
Matt

From what I've seen as samples on the net from DV953 compared to my GS100 the improvemnt in the low light and wider screen capabilities is very wellcome!!!

Actually yesterday I hold for a first time GS400. Phew... ask me if I liked it :))
Everything I wanted in high end consumer cam is there!
Better viewfinder, manual zoom&focus ring (GS100 is only focus), separate mode dial for switching to play and card modes, better 16:9 resolution, etc., etc.

Let me tell you only that at manual 15dB gain up with GS100 in a night shot you barely get high grain and the footage is very watchable. It's sure not a fit for VX2000 but it is consumer oriented cam anyway.
GS400 should be slightly better LOL!
