  • Summary: Easy to use. Great special effects. Great video. Sound quality a bit on the poor side due to loud camera motor noise, external mic and external lighting source for indoors would make it a great camcorder.

  • 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.

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.
