Video Performance* (5.5)*
The Panasonic PV-GS320 has the same three 1/6" CCDs as last year’s PV-GS300, which is hardly a detriment. The gross pixel count of each is 800,000 (540,000 in 16:9 and 640,000 in 4:3). All the Panasonic three-chippers of the last few years have produced fantastic color performance. There is little of the spotty oversaturation that we see in other camcorders, where either the blues or the reds or the yellows are too strong.
