The NV-GS400GC is Panasonics first attempt at 3CCD. Priced at around a grand from most retailers, the GS400 can be classed as "semi-professional". It works brilliantly both as a MiniDV Camcorder and a 4.9 megapixel digital camera. The only aspect of this camera that has concerned me is the control panel and the battery life of it's lithium-ion cell.
