Summary: Ordered product expidited and after a week it was never received. I finally received notice from Amazon that the order was cancelled (by the vendor). My guess is they never had the product to begin with. I'll NEVER use them again.
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.
Summary: some picture quality issues, but so what, its so tiny, that you slip it into a pocket or small purse and take it everywhere. I've used it more in the 2 months I've had it than I used my older larger and heavier camcorder in 5 years!
Summary: Pros: Compact, lightweight, portability, easy to use, big screen, good reproduction Cons: Microphone sensitive to wind, getting used to not having a viewfinder, bad low light performance. Summary: I picked this camera as an upgrade for my old Canon ZR10.
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.
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!
Summary: If you're looking for a camcorder that can produce vivid colors and crystal clear picture, stop reading this review now. This camcorder is not for you. If you can live with a medicore picture quality, but have the ability to virtually pocket a camcorder anywhere you go, read on.
