Excellent Video, Dissapointing Stills

Chu Pei Jen, Amazon
21 February 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.

Subpar Reliability

mdchachi, Amazon
21 February 2004
  • 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.

Excellent but expensive

Brian Fuchs, Amazon
21 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.

La mejor imagen de video y stills hasta la fecha

Hugo A. Signori, Amazon
21 February 2004
  • 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.

High quality prosumer camera

Glynn Clapsaddle, Amazon
21 February 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.

Excellent Camcorder - Disappointing Camera

Ilir Kullolli, Amazon
21 February 2004
  • 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.

VERY clear picture. Quite poor in bad lighting

"gtdunn", Amazon
20 May 2004
  • Summary: Well title sums it up really.... the picture quality is very clear and crisp. When i playback something using the s-video cable the picture quality is actually clearer looking on my TV than the actual TV channels are. The cam also picks up colours very well and they look realistic.
