For those just starting out in video and don?t want to spend a lot, then the NVGS25 will be the goods. Keenly priced, a huge 24x optical zoom (with the dollars you save, buy a tripod – trust us!) and a simple to use navigation menu system, the GS25 is a great little camcorder for the first time user. There is a USB 2.0 port for downloading video to a PC and this can also double as a streaming port turning your camcorder into a high quality webcam.

The Quick Start button helps shoot videos on the spur of the moment. While saving battery power, this function lets you shoot those not-to-be-missed scenes just 1.3 sec after pressing the button.
