Summary: I personally did not care for the DC164. It is in fact too little. If you have man size hands, the controls are difficult to find. The "joystick" which is smaller than a paper match head, was hard also hard to control.
Summary: I received this product as a gift. While the camera itself was free, I had to buy a case, back-up batteries (after having read the negative reviews), mini DVDs, and a memory card, so it was far from free in the end.
Summary: I bought the SC-DC164 camcorder in Nov 2006. I've spent several hours using/investigating it, after thoroughly reading the user manual. Here's my take on this camcorder: DON'T buy this model if you can't tolerate a lot of problems and "learning experiences" with it!
Summary: I BOUGHT A VIDEO CAMERA ABOUT A MONTH AGO THE SERVICE WAS GOOD BUT THE CAMERA IS NOT TAKING GOOD PICTURES YET THE CUSTERMER SAID IT WAS IN GOOD WORKING ORDER. I WON IT ON A BID SO I DID NOT THINK I COULD RETUNE IT I DONT REMEMBER THE CUSTOMER NAME ANYWAY. THANKS FOR LETTING ME SPEAK MY PIECE.
