Go for the GS300 because even though it doesn't have true widescreen, you are still able to record in widescreen. This only matters if you have an 16:9 widescreen TV and you dont want to some video quality. If there's no preference TV, then GS300. It's true GS300 is a very good camcorder. Very popular. Definitely worth the extra money...
I'm off to study abroad in England next semester, and want to buy a video camera to record my stay over there. I think I've narrowed my search down to the Elura 100 and Panasonic GS300 (there's a $90 difference between the two, the GS300 being more expensive).
I really like the true widescreen capability that the Elura 100 has, a long with the night shot function.
The Panasonic GS300 has 3 CCD, and will have a better picture.
Is it worth getting the GS300 for the better picture, and sacrificing the additional features of the Elura 100?
Or do you think that the Elura 100 is a good enough camera that I should just go with it?
Help! I really don't know too much about camcorders, besides what I have read in reviews...
Thanks so much!!
