Thought I'd look at some old tapes and was happy with the quality
4 August 2015
Summary: Bought it in 2003. Used it for a couple of years and put it away. Thought I'd look at some old tapes and was happy with the quality. Dusted it off and using it again. Looks and performs like new. Such a neat little camera.
Summary: I bought this camcorder 7 years ago. Although they no longer make this model I feel compelled to tell people that I still use and love this camcorder. I love the fact that when I use this thing no one is looking at me thinking, "Hey buddy get a new camera!
Summary: Bought this camera for the birth of my baby, and it is excellent. Fantastic image quality (better than a DVD) in good lighting, and still very good in poor lighting. You will notice that color saturation is a little off in poor lighting, that's my only minor complaint.
Summary: I hesitantly opened up my Sony PC-101 as a X-mas present from my wife, worried that she had not done the research that I would do in buying such a gift. To my surprise, she picked a camcorder that has lived up to all my expectations.
Summary: I have used this camcorder intermittently for about 1 month. I am very pleased with it. It is small, but cannot fit in a pant's pocket comfortably (unless you are fond of elephantine, droopy pants), but certainly fits in a parka or other jacket pocket.
Summary: I bought this for my wife for Christmas. She wanted a small and easy to use camcorder, so after some research I chose the PC101. When it arrived, I was shocked at how small it actually is. My sister has a larger model miniDV sony and it has MANY small buttons with crytic labels.
Summary: First of all, thanks to all the other reviewers of this Sony PC101, you really helped me in my final decision. Being a first time camcorder buyer and researching all the different options, i.e.,1ccd or 3ccd, size, cost, image quality , which Manufacturer (Sony vs Canon endless debate) etc.

Summary: I bought my PC-101 from Sony Canada Ltd and in the first three months of use the touchscreen started becoming unreliable: there was a bad connection. I sent the PC-101 in for repair three times in a row.
