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.
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.

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.

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.
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. Every control on the camera is placed in such a manner that one handed operation of the camera is a snap, and I was able to get the ceremony on video, while easily switching over to capture some stills as...
