I received a broken unit that did not work. I do not recommend this vendor

  • Summary: The Sony Handycam I received from this vendor did not work. The unit once opened would not close with or without a tape. The vendor would not exchange this unit for one that would work.

7 years and going

August Blaze "web guy", Amazon

  • 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!" It looks at up-to-date and in my opinion better than a lot of these new camcorder. Forget Hard drives MiniDVs RULE!

Just Buy It!

Amazon

  • Summary: You've come this far. You just need a little nudge. Buy it. I did all of the research, and am pretty picky. For this price, there is nothing better, or more fun.

a wonder in a small package

N. Olson "qayana", Amazon
4 May 2003
  • Summary: I recently purchased this camcorder after our school's arrived and I had a chance to give it a test-drive. I have big hands so I thought some of the buttons would be awkward... not so. The film looks great, it is easy to use, the still images are of high quality (I put off getting a digital camera to buy this figuring I now have both). You can manually focus when you want to, the lens is of very high quality and there are wide angle and other lens available.

Awesome Camera

H. Marlina, Amazon
15 April 2003
  • 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. I compared this camera to just about all cameras in this price range, and you won't find a better one. Enjoy!

Great Digital Camcorder

Disher "dishman", Amazon
29 March 2003
  • 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. The one control on the back of the camcorder determines whether you are using the camcorder for playback, Video or Stills which removes the clutter of buttons that you might find on other cams.

Delighted.

Janna, Amazon
28 February 2003
  • 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. The size is actually a reasonable compromise--any smaller and it would be difficult to operate, depending on your hand size. It would be helpful to go to a store and try the fit and ease of operation.

Smaller and better than I first thought

Janna, Amazon
13 January 2003
  • 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. The touch screen on the 101 is great and get's rid of the clumbsy buttons on the larger model.

My First Camcorder and I Couldn't be Happier

Nostradennis "Nostradennis", Amazon
8 January 2003
  • 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. can be a bit much. In the end it was all the rave reviews about how nice the Carl Zeiss optics were and what nice image quality it produces.
