Excerpt: I am a Sony fanatic since then. I am really devoted in the Sony products. This can be very expensive but it is all worth above all. I have different Camcorder with different brands and among all those my favorite one is the Sony DCR-PC55 Mini DV Camcorder . This cost high unlike any other brands of Camcorders BUT this can long last because if you bought a very affordable one then this is easy to break, it is just worthless.
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: 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.
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.
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. The first reason I chose it was the small size and portability.
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. Usualy when something is very small for the same price as much bulkier models you usualy compromise features, NOT WITH THIS CAMERA. This has every feature which you would need ...
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
