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.

"small great consumer camera"

CNET
19 February 2005
  • Pros: Had no problems recording on inexpensive DVD RWs from Office Depot. Works great. Can burn to regular DVDs and to Photo CDs. Found it at a spectacular price. Got great support from Sony (especially free on-line classes from Sony 101).
  • Cons: None, but I bought it NIB $280 under retail.

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.

"not really a photographer's camera"

CNET

  • Pros: Small, light, convenient
  • Cons: Should have know there were problems when there weren't any USB drivers or support on the Macintosh. The provided software is the pits.

Great for Plug and Play People

Movie Maker, Amazon

  • 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.
