This was a great value and glad I looked on Ebay

mmcgett, Ebay
2 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product to transfer a lot of miniDV digital tapes shot in the Sea of Cortes over the last 20 years to a Mac hard drive. This was a great camera in it's day and finding an almost new one for $49.00 was too good to be true. I had accessories that were not included from the camera I had before. It has a 4 wire fire wire input/output port and works perfectly with the 9 wire fire wire port on my iMac. iMovie sees it immediately.

The BEST Digital Tape Recorder Ever Made

johngray, Ebay
9 July 2011
  • Summary: This camera is so good, I have purchased several of them for my family. So many features and the thing I like best is that it is easy to make DVD's of videos taken with this camera, in order to give to others. Newer HD cameras do not have this feature since videos taken with those cameras must be viewed on a computer or through the video camera itself.

Sony Handycam DCR-PC100

blancamuchachona, Ebay
18 August 2010
  • Summary: I love this camcorder because of it's high video quality. It uses mini dv tape. Plus it is very lightweight and compact. It also has a feature where you can video tape in complete darkness. Nevertheless, the image will be in black and white. For full color video taping at night, you can attach a flash. It can also take still pictures and save them onto a memory stick or directly onto your video footage.

Great model at its time

skwalebaba, Ebay
21 October 2006
  • Summary: I own this camcorder since a long time now and I am mostly satisfied with it. Nevertheless, I have to warn you about following problems I discovered: - When you record a video in a quiet environment, you will be able, when you play what you recorded, to hear the motor noise of the DV cassete deck on the tape, - it is not efficient in low light environments, - it does not react fast enough in focus changes particularly in low light environments, - it is too heavy for a...

Sony Handycam DCR PC100

ronkeffer, Ebay
7 August 2006
  • Summary: I have an underwater housing that this camera fits into. I have purchased this one and I am looking for another one soon. The housing is for this model only and if I have it upgraded it will cost me about $2500.00 I have used this camera many times before and it works perfectly. So I decided to invest the $ 2500.00 into several cameras so my underwater housing would be functional for quite some time.

Lie about 1 Mega Pixel photos

Epsilon Delta, Amazon
2 April 2003
  • 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... I called the Sony customer support and they told me, "if it looks good on the view finder, then Sony's job is done." What [a lie]. Sony, wake up and don't tell lies!
