I tried to search for Panasonic PV-GS70K-S user manual over the Internet and all I found was this Panasonic PV-GS70 Operating Instruction PDF manual from Panasonic Website. What I think is PV-GS70K-S is a localized variation of PV-GS70 to be sold in certain region.

This manual I found on Panasonic website is available in two languages: English and Spanish. There are 114 pages in this 8.40 MB PDF manual file. The manual if search-able so you just look up the word/phrase faster by CTRL-F (press Ctrl key and F key together in your keyboard) and type in the words.

There are five chapters in the manual, ranging from

  1. Before Use
  2. Camera Mode
  3. VCR Mode
  4. Special Feature and
  5. Others
For normal users who want to just get started using their Panasonic PV-GS70 immediately without going deep into each function and features, they can just refer to the Quick Guide on page 12. You will learn just the basic to get you started in no time:
  1. Charge and attach the battery, insert cassette and start recording.
