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.
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...
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.

I would have given it 5 stars, except (1) it picks up a lot of wind noise (external mike socket would have been good)(but, hey,...
Excerpt: I recently purchased this Digital video camera for my vacation to orlando florida. I was looking for the smallest and lightest camera as i would be doing a lot of walking around theme parks and didnt want something that would be a hinderence. I then saw this camera advertised.
Pros: Very small, Easy to use, light weight, 2 hour battery life very large 3 . 5in lcd
Cons: Only 10X optical zoom, no view finder, no built in light
