Summary: I love this camera! I used this camera for a year now and in my opinion this is the best Sony camera for family use. It fits easily in a pocket, I just carry it in a ziplock bag to avoid getting it dirty. I carry this camera with me whenever I can, just to document bits of daily family life.
Summary: I've only had my pc1000 for a week and it seems to be a great camera. The camera form factor, user controls, and picture/audio quality are all better than I expected. The one area where it missed the mark was that Sony doesn't adequately emphasize that Mac users need an additional 4-pin to 6-pin...
Summary: Iam from Costa Rica, this camera is very expensive I do not recommend you to buy, i t has no night shot or super night shot, the built in Flash has power for close pictures, the picture quality is just aceptable in sun ligth but indoors is very bad, i recommend you to buy the DCR-PC105 or similar...

Summary: I recently purchased this camcorder and have been pretty pleased. It does an excellent job with good lighting (outdoors). In addition, it is very light and easily portable in a jacket pocket. It is very simple to use. My wife (who is not a gadget-user) can work it very easily.
Summary: This camera achieves its goal as a sleek, simple dual function (still/movie) camera with moderate access to advanced functions. It is easy to use, small and lightweight, and has a very high coolness quotient.
Good for consumer, bad for any level higher than "Uncle Joe's Birthday"

Summary: As a Handy-cam, it works fine. It has an "idiot" mode button that allows simple point and shoot operation. So, if you're on vacation and shooting outdoors, you're set with the PC1000. It's fine. The resolution and quality are superb. Anything beyond those lower expectations, however, forget it.
Summary: Everything I wanted in a small light camcorder. The automatic stabilizer feature is great. All features and functions work as advertized. Options like wide and tele lenses work great. It is handy to have an extra battery. Definitely worth the price. Still photo capability is very good.
Summary: I've had this camcorder about a month, I got it as a gift for my 40th, I chose it. Pros: Under good lighting it produces wonderful video, great sound. I love the menu system (though the LCD needs constant cleaning).
