      Hi,

      Im Lucas from Brazil, at March 2006 i got the GS-180 to record surf (me and my friends).
      My choice was GS-180 because it has 3ccd. I was very happy with the camera, clean colors.
      But…
      10x is so weak to record surf, even with a 2x lens
      MiniDV format makes me lost a good money, the head gets dirty all the time. (head cleaner tape and service)
      Low-Light very bad. Cloudy days…
      Record Speed. THIS ONE is important, im not talking about SP or LP mode, is about the delay time between when you press the rec buttom and when its really start to record. i lost a lot of good footage, the best part of the wave is the begin.
      i dont care about sound, design, or photo.
      I loved the fx7 features, but somebody told me that the delay of the record is about 5 seconds… what a d e l a y.
      I will get a new one at january (i will be at hawaii) for sure at bhphotovideo.
      What you guys have to say?
