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.

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.

Start Recording Now!Absolutely Excellent Video Recording Packed In An Incredibly Compact Size!

Peter V. Cannice "Peter Vincent Cannice of Sc..., Amazon
22 November 2005
  • Summary: The Sony DCR-PC55 MiniDV Handycam Camcorder w/10x Optical Zoom is aboslute one of the best MiniDV Camcorders on the market. Even at its original retail price, Sony has packed so much technology into that sleek design that it's truly an amazing gadget. Another feature that I totally loved about this Handycam was that the instructions for use were made clear and operating the camcorder is almost as simple as taking photographs.
