Excellent camera, perfect for what I bought it for

mystrawberryfields, Ebay
10 July 2008
  • Summary: This is an excellent camera, very easy to use and operate. Also very easy to play back once having recorded what you want. We purchased this camera for skydiving videos, as well as for use in the wind tunnel, and we already have some great footage. Highly recommend this camera.

Subpar Reliability

mdchachi "mdchachi", Amazon
22 June 2008
  • Summary: We got this camcorder shortly after it came out (and paid a pretty penny for it). They hyped up the 3.0MP at the time which wasn't suitable for decent photos even then. We never used the still photo capability so in retrospect we paid for some features we didn't need. Over the last 5 years it's given us some great video memories (I still need to get them off the tapes into a computer for permanent storage) and I have no issues with the video quality.

Great Compact Camcorder

dynamo55b, Ebay
24 September 2006
  • Summary: PC330 is a very easy Handling, Quick responsive controls. It takes great stills and Video. Sometimes has difficult time focusing in very low light, But with manual manipulation of the large focus ring easily corrects it. Very well made, Excellent fit of parts, no side to side play or loose doors. Included software is very good. Not the normal junk stuff. I use it as my default instead of the AV Software I paid for $40.00 for. Very easy to use.

Excellent Camcorder - Disappointing Camera

Ilir Kullolli "Ilir Kullolli", Amazon
28 June 2005
  • Summary: It's slim, compact, looks great, great zooming, and it delivers more than you can expect from a regular camcorder. It is definitely in the "professional" range of camcorders. I have used the DCR-PC330 in different occasions varying from soccer and basketball games to family reunions and birthdays. This camcorder has always delivered above my expectations.

High quality prosumer camera

Glynn Clapsaddle "glynn@thestreetlamp.com", Amazon
5 July 2004
  • Summary: A palm-sized camera that almost shoots as well as the low-end 3-CCD cameras, made by a reputable name (Sony), and a price under $1400? Yes, Sony has done it. Exterior - With the vertical orientation of the body and the smaller thickness, this camera will fit well in your palm. The main controls are positioned comfortably where your fingers will most naturally fall. The design allows for basic operation without jostling the camera.

Excellent Video, Dissapointing Stills

Chu Pei Jen "Ronimal", Amazon
13 March 2004
  • Summary: I WANTED TO HAVE IT ALL. A CAMCORDER THAT TOOK EXCELLENT VIDEO AND GOOD STILLS. THIS PRODUCT DISSAPOINTS IN THE LATTER. HOWEVER, MANY PEOPLE SAY THAT THE STILL PICTURE QUALITY THAT THIS CAMCORDER TAKES ARE ALREADY BETTER THAN ANY CAMCORDER OUT THERE. WHILE THIS MAY BE TRUE, I MUST WARN THE PEOPLE OUT THERE THINKING THAT THIS CAN REPLACE YOU 2 OR 3 MEGAPIXEL CAMCORDER....IT WONT.

Excellent but expensive

Brian Fuchs, Amazon
2 February 2004
  • Summary: This was my first-ever camcorder purchase, so I wanted to make sure the camera was a solid performer. The other two candidates were the Panasonic DV953 and the Sony TRV950. To help me choose, I took a crash-course in MiniDV cams (by reading the reviews) and found that most of them kept harping on things that I didn't care about. Things like bottom-loading the tapes vs top-loading; Single CCD vs 3 CCD; the number of shutter speeds.

Excellent DV Camera; Some Limitations

Orome "Aldaron", Amazon
8 December 2003
  • Summary: Other reviews here do a good job of covering the specs and general pros and cons of this all-round excellent camera. Here I'll just mention a few additional points and reiterate some others: (1) You will almost certainly need an additional, higher capacity battery right off the bat; the battery provided is almost totally inadequate.

La mejor imagen de video y stills hasta la fecha

Hugo A. Signori "Photographer", Amazon
9 November 2003
  • Summary: Excelente calidad de video y sobresaliente el color. La sensibilidad con poca luz es muy buena en video. He obtenido imágenes nocturnas muy buenas en calles bien iluminadas y en shoppings. Las stills son mejores que lo que haya visto anteriormente, aunque no a la par con una cámara digital de 3mp. Igualmente imprimen y se ven muy bien. Excelentes las imágenes con flash, que se ajusta perfecto aun en macros extremos. Con poca luz hay algo de ruido.
