Summary: the Camcorder Box and Spec says it is good for 1 MegaPixel photos. It is a lie. The image quality is like magnifying a 640 x 480 to 1 Megapixel. The result is coarse pixelation of the photo...
Summary: I've been looking at DV cameras for a while now, and finally settled on the DCR-PC100. I couldn't be happier about my decision. I've made some great movies with it, but I think the best example of the flexibility of this camera came when I went to a wedding last week.
Summary: I bought a DCR-PC100E in July 2000. Generally, I am satisfied with it, but I have a problem with making still pictures as follow: I make still pictures in the best quality (1152 x 768, Superfine). When I see the still pictures they are all made with the big sharpenning of edges.
Summary: It leaves you wanting more and also leaves you with the feeling that Sony isn't fascinated with customer satisfaction. We have all known for a while about Sony's propensity towards proprietary formats such as memory sticks, the batteries, just about any accessory and so on and we understand that...
Keep you fingers crossed, never drop it on the floor.

Summary: Overall speaking, good camera. But, it will cost you a fortune (US$880) to repair it, if you drop it on the floor. I was also planing to use on my Dell computer as a WebCam via the firewire port. No, it didn't and doesn't work.
Summary: Ive had this camera for 9 months, and I have grown very attached to it. I've beat the crap out of it and it still works fine, a good sign. It fits in ones hand like a crazy optical-recepting hand gun.
Summary: I'm using this recorder (type PC100E) in combination with StudioDV software from Pinnacle. I'm satisfied, easy handling and understanding. Anybody who can help me with tips and tricks for non-linear editing please e-mail me.
Summary: I bought the camcorder after my Jvc was destroyed in an accident. I really enjoyed my Jvc but the sony was much better. I did finally take it (the pc100) back because I found out on the Sony website that sony was coming out with a dcr pc 110. It has a U.S.B.
