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...
Summary: The Sony digital camcorder records excellant video images and sound, but most TV set fail to reproduce the image quality and conventional VHS recorders lose the video quality when copying. The still image quality is poor compared to stand alone 1 mega pixel cameras and cannot be used at the same time you are video taping. Works well with a iMac and iMovie for editing, could not see doing it any other way for less.
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. After time and experimenting, one grows accustomed to its grip and it's small size makes the human subjects less nervous, almost as if no video camera is there, just a miniscule receptor of their realtime image.
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 this camera about 8 months ago. Just a few 'negatives' I'd like to point out. (1) It is a bit bulky, so sometimes a bit cumbersome to carry around with you, but then again, so are many of them. (2) The zoom switch really takes some getting used to. In the beginning it would zoom in or out completely in a microsecond the moment I tried to zoom a tiny bit. Did not exactly make my films look professional.
Summary: After laboriously searching for several weeks, I chose this camera over all other models. As this is a complex unit, there are many long reviews here, and being succinct is very difficult. I will skip most features listed, and try to concentrate on the advantages (many), and shortcomings (few) of this camera compared to others: The picture quality is superb. It's like watching a television. Just one look and you'll be immediately impressed.
Summary: Sony produced an overall good camera. The built in megapixel still camera makes this a great combination. There are a couple things you should know though. - low light performance is marginal (7 lux) - the mic placement is poor and picks up motor noise - the memory stick supplied is almost to small to be usefull so plan on buying a 32 or 64M stick - the camera is almost too small, if you have large hands try it out first.
