Not any good if the lens cap does not open!

Hoopla, Amazon
28 March 2010
  • Summary: I have had this camera about 6 years paid 700.00. I liked this camera because you can take pictures and video and even take a picture from your video. About a year ago the lens cap hesitated when trying to open (automatic) then it just stopped. Sony quoted 500.00 to fix. That is rediculous! I finally got used to all of the screens so I am not sure what to do. Everything in my house is Sony but I am at the point of defecting.

Please Get Real!!! Don't expect to get Orange juice from lemons!!!

  • Summary: When you buy a product that is designed and meant to fulfill certain needs, just expect the best performance out of those features. The PC55 is a camera for the everyday home shooter, easy to use and made with the best SONY quality for one of the smallest MINI DV camera ever created.

Nice camera. Not so good at night

Esteban Mosquera "stebanus", Amazon
24 March 2006
  • Summary: The camera is one of the best considering the price and the size of it. The only problem I found is that it has not a light, so you will need to buy the external one, if not all the shots that you do at night will be very dark.

Poor quality when record on MS duo

S. Liu "windswift", Amazon
17 March 2006
  • Summary: I have own this camcorder for 6 month it's a good camcorder, esay to use, easy to bring As it's design purpose, PC-55 is enough for home use Only one thing I want to mention here, before I buy this camcorder, I thought that I can record video on MS duo in mepg format, and it's easy for post-edit on PC, you know, tansfer a MiniDV tape to computer may need a huge space to save.

Couldn't be better

Manolito Manuel, Amazon
3 March 2006
  • Summary: If you want to capture every precious moments, this is the right camcorder for you. It's easy to operate and the video is crisp and clear. The sound is pretty good as well. You can also take still picture and video at the same time (thanks to the memory stick). Don't burn your video using your computer, it took me time to download to a CD or DVD. Instead burn them as you watch them. It's quicker that way. You will love it the first time you use it.

Little Giant

Christopher, Amazon
17 February 2006
  • Summary: I've had this camcorder for a week now and I think it works great .. except for the touch screen feature. That takes a little getting used to .. especially when accessing the special features (such as fader effects) while filming. The digital still quality is poor when recording directly to the memory stick .. but the same images taken as a still from prerecorded tape is much clearer. All in all it is a good product .. just takes some getting used to.

Great camcorder!

Nolan, Amazon
5 February 2006
  • Summary: Had this camcorder for few months now and it has been put to a lot of use. Compact, light, and easy to carry around. Tons of features which takes getting use to since most of it is touch screen. Battery life is pretty good. Video quality is excellent as well. Very happy with the purchase, and I have had no problems so far.
