Great camera in small package, so-so in low light

Summary: Any camera with you is better than one not with you. This camera is easy on the pocket and takes great pictures, but indoors pictures are somewhat lacking. It does have a flash. But video indoors can be grainy. This works great as our second camera, for our aspiring camera buff son. It can hold lots of video due to its great compression with minimal quality loss.
Summary: Easy to use. I own VPC-C4 but the LCD is gone. To fix it will cost me about $100. I bought this to be able to use all parts I have such as charger, batteries with the same money. The 6 Mega pixels is enough for me to get the pictures and the thing I need. You can record voice as well. I am satisfied with it so far.
Summary: I think a lot of people underestimate this camera, i bought this for 250.00 at radio shack around Christmas of 2007 on sale, also the display. The warranty was about 55.00 dollars for two years. I think that a lot of users just don't know how to use this camera. If you go into the settings and change the filters, or image size or even the mode, auto,fireworks, sports, etc. I typically use the sports setting making picture virtually clear.
Its Versatility Will Change How You Use a Video Camera

Summary: This is a camcorder for the digital age. Tiny, multi-functional, and flexible. No ancient-technology magnetic tape. As with any product on the leading edge, there are many shortcomings. Let's dispense with the obvious. This device is all about compact go-anywhere flexibility and ease. For best image quality, a dedicated mini-DV camcorder and dedicated digital still camera is the only way to go.
Summary: I just purchased a C6 and took it to Disneyland to video the kids. Bottom line is that I love this cam. Here are my thoughts after using it for one week: Without a doubt, the size makes this camera so much more usable than larger models for "on the go" shooting. I have a mini DVD cam that fits in your palm, but you can't put it in your pocket. For me, its a pain to have to get it in and out of a fanny pack or whatever and I miss shots.
Summary: I like this because it is small and ergonomically well designed. I am keeping it. However, there are many tradeoffs and issues that anyone should note: 1. The movie function is better in quality than stills for almost all conditions. 2. The movie function sound picks up faint noise from absolutely everything the camera does, from zoom to auto adjust the focus. This can only be heard under quiet conditions, but it is there, and in fact mentioned in the manual. 3.
Summary: My wife and I are expecting a baby, and I got this camcorder because I was looking for something small. This camera is very small and portable, smaller than many cell phones, and that was its main selling point for us. That said, I was not expecting great video quality from it. However, I was positively surprised: its video quality compare to the low end MiniDV cameras, with perhaps a little better performance in low light than the cheap ones.
Excerpt: Al igual que dice uno de los usuarios, el modo video es un poco flojo en la oscuridad, y yo aparte tengo otro problema las fotos con poca luz salen movidas, no se si es que no se utilizarla, o por lo contrario no ofrece la calidad esperada. Bueno es la primera camara que tengo, y por el precio que la consegui no puedo quejarme.
