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.

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.

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. This camcorder is bad in poor lighting (for one of this price anyway), it has a grainy effect when its quite dark. For filming indoors in the daytime its fine though.

Great buy, only if it was without the camera

  • Excerpt: "...are as good as other Sony camcorders with USB support, tv cables, blah blah blah.... If you have read reviews of other Sony camcorders, you've probably heard about the common good things. To sum it up, I would have loved to have this camcorder, but without the camera feature. So, with something that will not be highly used, it's highly priced. On the plus side, it's the resolution that beats all others in the market. ...
  • Pros: High quality picture, lightweight
  • Cons: Not suitable for photography, Highly priced

Super Compact

semiLOOSE, Ciao
18 February 2004
  • Excerpt: "...Compared to the TRV models Sony is offering this model is small and offers some cool functions, touch screen system on the LCD screen being one of the best decisions Sony has made. The camera is light and comfortable to hold in your hand and all the keys are well placed so there is no fumbling around. A great camera with a great style and design so the age will never show. Good software included in the package for editing of videos on your computer. ...
  • Pros: Compact with Still picture Capabilities
  • Cons: no manual buttons

  • Conclusion: Batterilivslängd: 3 Bildkvalitet: 5 Hållbarhet: 4 Riktigt fin kompakt DV-kamera. Lätt att ha med. Kräver extra vidvinkellins för att klara av många situationer. Extra batteri ett måste. Sony är nog bäst på DV kameror, mycket nöjd.
  • Pros: Kanon bild, snabb fokus. Bra skärm. Finoptik.
  • Cons: Kassa stillbilder. Saknar manuel inställning av linje/mik nivå. Dålig vidvinkel.

Sony DCR PC 3 - bewegte Bilder

Yopi
30 June 2004
  • Summary: Kurz vor meinen Uerlaub im vergangenen Jahr war mein Digitale Kamera hinüber und ich mußte mich für eine neue entscheiden. Nach mehreren Tests im Laden entschied ich mich für die Sony PC3E vor allem wegen Ihrer idealen Größe, nicht zu klein (verwackelungsgefahr) und nicht zu groß. Außerdem ist sie umfangreich ausgestattet, leicht zu bedienen ( Touchscreen ) und robust. Die Serienausstattung ist relativ komplett, aber leider ohne Firewire. Das Digitalkabel kostet ca.
