After Sales Service Very Poor

Amazon
15 December 2003
  • Summary: This camera seemed ideal for my needs and although I spend most of my time in Europe I opted for an NTSC format as I know that I am able to access this format in Europe whereas I cannot access PAL in the US, thus it being much more universal.

5 Stars if it worked on a mac

Amazon
9 November 2003
  • Summary: Please sign the petition at [...] requesting Sony support this camera (and other MicroMV camcorders) on Mac OS X. This is a great camcorder, but it is impossible to use because you cannot get the video onto your Mac. For those of you that use a PC for video editing (yeah, right...

Caution! Not compatible with Apple Computers

Amazon
9 August 2003
  • Summary: I was about to buy this little beauty when I found out Sony's MicroMV system (compressing in MPEG2) is not compatible with Apple's iMovie and other editing software. The editing software that comes with the camcorder (Movie Shaker) is PC only.

This is a tiny, very cool camcorder doesn't mind limitations

  • Summary: Pros: Stylish and amazingly compact; innovative design; built-in flash and low-power video light; flexible low-light shooting. Cons: Limited choice in editing apps for MicroMV video format; lens has fairly narrow angle of view; no accessory shoe or external microphone jack.

Size versus video quality

Tim CH, Amazon
11 March 2003
  • Summary: In a nutshell, the major issue with the IP55 is the small trade-off of video quality versus size. Mind you, you're getting by far one of the smallest video cameras on the market, with all the camcorder features you'd expect in a larger model.

Amazingly tiny and feature packed

What Sony doesn't tell you...

Amazon
22 December 2002
  • Summary: The problem with all of the Sony MicroMV cameras is that you cannot use them with any of the standard video editing packages such as Adobe Premiere or Apple's Final Cut Pro. Sony neglects to tell you that you can only use their included MovieShaker software which is notoriously unreliable.
