Rugged, efficient, easy and compact

enriver, Amazon
23 September 2006
  • Summary: I owned this wonderful piece of optical marvel since 2000. In all these years I traveled from the Sahara to the Mont Blanc, from 120F to minus 40 in Siberia. It never failed! I kept it in my pocket to record my life's events.

Efficient, excellent quality and compact

Dom KS, Amazon
25 April 2004
  • Summary: I bought the PC1E in 2004 so it's not the newest, I have been looking for a camcorder to settle down with for a while now and have used Panasonics, Sharps and JVCs, I was put off Sony by the fact that you usually pay a premium price and I had no evidence that they were definitively better than the...

Outstanding

Amazon
3 January 2002
  • Summary: I purchased this camcorder Oct. 1999. The picture quality is crystal clear in good lighting conditions, grainy in low light conditions. I also purchased a ... hardware/software package from Pinnacle Systems ... that allows me to edit video and audio captured on the camcorder on my PC.

Digital Video Editing on your PC

Amazon
28 January 2000
  • Summary: An earlier review stated that it was not possible to edit digital video from the DCR-PC1 on a desktop computer. I bought a third party FireWire board and DV editing program bundle for my PC (I paid $80) and had the board installed, the software running, and video downloaded from my camera in under...

L. K. Sharma, Amazon

tiny wonder

Amazon
28 November 1999
  • Summary: Size matters. I've noticed in the almost year and a half that I've owned the PC1, I use it more frequently than previously owned camcorders. Because it is pocketable, I take it with me more regularly. I like the ability to hook it to my PC and save still shots.

Inability to Edit

Palisades Consumer, Amazon
24 November 1999
  • Summary: I think overall the camera is a marvel. The quality of the images and the audio are much better than I was used to with VHS-C. And the compactness of the camera goes without saying.

Incredible size and quality

Scott Hanning, Amazon
21 November 1999
  • Summary: Although it does lack a couple of goodies like ultra-low light shooting, the size and picture quality are amazing. If you want a video camera you can take everywhere (it even fits into a coat pocket) get this one now.

A Stellar Gem

Robert O. Taunt III, Amazon
21 November 1999
  • Summary: This dinky Sony DCR-PC1 is perfect for all home video situations especially shooting images of our grandbaby. Children - age 5 and up - have also used this camera which is a testament to how easy the camera is to operate. The compact size and the excellent optics make this a win-win video camera.

Overall a great product

Amazon
18 November 1999
  • Summary: I've shot about 10 tapes with PC-1 and this is what I learnt: + I love its compactness (it's more important than I originally thought) + Has many features (scene transitions, digital effects, titles, manual focus/exposure) + Picture quality is very good (for a non professional camcorder) + 120x...
