“This NV DS27 Mini-DV Camcorder from Panasonic is a...”

Written on: 07/10/2002 by MTWB. (1 review written)

This NV DS27 Mini-DV Camcorder from Panasonic is a well-featured, nicely presented mini-DV camcorder, especially considering its low price. The image quality of the DV format is good and it also has a 15x optical zoom.

The facility for shooting in zero light conditions works pretty well.

The motion sensor which kicks the camera into record mode when movement is detected is great for recording yourself and setting up tricks if you are that way inclined...

All in all a good piece of kit at… Read Full Review

“Panasonic Mini-DV Camcorder NV DS27. It took me some...”

Written on: 04/06/2002 by Welshie. (1 review written)

Panasonic Mini-DV Camcorder NV DS27. It took me some searching to find this "last year's model", but I knew it would have a better optical zoom lens than it's newer counterparts; in the end I got it for a reasonable price.

The manual is a bit "Engrish", and attempts to cover the DS27, DS28 (which are, to all intents and purposes, identical, minus the bit of software to enable DV in, which is missing on the DS27 as part of the manufacturer's EU tax loopholes), but also the DS37 and DS38. This… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/03/2002 by Amazon Customer. (1 review written)

I have just bought the Panasonic NV DS27B digital camcorder from Amazon, and it has exceeded all my expectations for such a cheap digital camcorder. I have enabled DV-IN on mine very easily... It works a dream connected to my PC using Pinnacle DV Studio.
It works exceptionally well in fully automatic mode, but all the manual overrides are there if you need them. One feature I did not expect was 'motion sensor', where the camera goes into standby mode until it detects motion. It then records… Read Full Review

It is fair to say that this camcorder, the Panasonic DS27B, is better than its newer replacement(s). Not only is it optically better with 15x as opposed to 10x, but it has the colour viewfinder, not the B&W one now found on the newer 29 and 30 models. True it is heavier and larger than its replacements, but it is also better made with higher quality plastics. Unfortunately one thing the 27 does not have is an "In DV" facility to allow in camcorder editing - but who ever finds time to do that anyway? :) The Dv out to video recorder is simple to use with the mini remote and the DV studio to my pc for the stills images is also a doddle to use - even if it is not a replacement for a 1MB+ digital camera. The digital effects are actually quite useful in moderation and the only feature I miss is a titling mode found on my old Sony. Battery use is ok but zooming really cuts it down. 2 or 3 major zooms and a standard battery is gone in 10 minutes. Limit your zooms and you may get 30 minutes - only use the viewfinder and you will not only get better more steady pictures but 40-45 minutes out of the battery. All in all if you dont mind it being bigger than a maychbox, this is a good camera that is now really good value available at around $600 / £400.
