I'd be interesting to know how this compares to the Sony posted some days ago from Amazon.
Panasonic GS60 MiniDV Camcorder 30 x Optical Zoom 2.5 inch LCD Screen.
The Panasonic NV GS60 is a camcorder that can satisfy your craving for things far, far away without breaking a sweat. Along with its 1/6-inch image sensor with 800,000 pixels that can record moving details clearly, its powerful 30x variable optical zoom can transpose beautiful details faraway exactly as they are onto its 2.5-inch LCD. This is all due to the low distortion technology adapted by its Panasonic lens.
As if Panasonic is worried that such a powerful lens is not enough to eliminate the distance between you and the object of your desire, the GS60 also incorporates a high-performance image processing Pure Colour Engine that reproduces the colours of the captured image, thus ensuring that it retains its original clarity.
Furthermore, the GS60 is capable of seeing things in the dark as well as it sees things faraway, as its Colour Night View ability maintains the fluidity of videos even under dim lighting. In addition, the GS60s Quick Start, which warms up the camcorder a mere 1.7 seconds after the LCD is switched on, allows you to take those spontaneous, once in a lifetime videos almost immediately.
