Is working great!

  • Summary: I wasn't too pleased with the cigarette odor when I got it but after wiping it down with alcohol and some other cleaning solution it was bearable. It took me some time to work with it and I didn't by the DVD for it right away to see its effectiveness. I took a test segment and it appears to be working fine. Now my true test next will be to see how it transfers onto my computer.

Great if you know your stuff or are willing to learn

  • Summary: Both reviews I've read on this product seem scattered and incoherent, so let me see if I can clear-up some of the misconceptions about Sony's DVD camcorder 101. I've had mine for 6 months now and am getting used to it. Despite what you might hear about the DVD format, this isn't an easy piece of equipment to use.

Great for Plug and Play People

  • Summary: I just borrowed my friend's Sony 101 to covert my analog footage to DVD and I thought that it worked great. After converting all my old analog home movies to DVD I thought I would take it out for a spin and see how well it records overall. It takes great pictures and allows you to save them directly to your DVD vs forcing you to download the images to your computer. I was also able to preview the video footage before I finalized the DVD.

Excellent camera with niggles

  • Summary: I have now had this camera for a couple of months having used analogue camcorders in the past. It is lightweight, easy to use and produces high quality videos. Irritatingly, Sony only includes a DVD/R which is permanent. The replacement discs are expensive (around £10 each for 30 minutes). My tip, if you have a rewriter, is to buy one DVD/RW then copy to a cheap DVD and keep re-using the DVD/RW. Yes, you can edit on the camera but the controls are inevitably tiny.

  • Summary: Es handelt sich hier um einen Bericht über eine Handycam von Sony, da dieses Modell nicht bei Yopi gelistet ist, dafür aber das oben genannte zweimal, setzte ich meinen Bericht einfach hier ein - bitte nehmt mir das nicht übel, aber Produktvorschläge werden hier ja auch nicht mehr angenommen: Film-und Fotoaufnahmen jeglicher Art überlässt mein Mann immer großzügigerweise mir, da ich mich nun aber schon seit einigen Monaten weigere, unser Camcorder-Monster aus dem...
