Great camcorder

Ryck, Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: I've been using this camcorder as a amateur video consultant for a non profit who bought top rated video equipment for their broadcast TV productions. After about six months of my use of it I was so impressed with its ease of use and features I ended-up getting one for myself.

Excellent camera

V. ROBERTSBATES, Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: I have owned my PD170 for about a year now. I bought it to replace my VX2000 (another great camera). Pros: 1. Excellent quality images for a non HD camera. 2. XLR connectors. 3. Compact size with excellent weight for steady one handed shots. 4. The low light ability of this camera is second to none.

Outstanding camera, period.

DWKing, Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: I've used this camera on several professional video shoots now, including talking heads, outdoors and an indoor music video. The low light capability of this camera is nothing short of stunning, with clear, crisp images available even when using only available tungsten room lights.

  • Summary: I work in Access TV. We use these at work. Have since they came out. Rugged enough to handle being used by hundreds if not thousands of inexperienced user and still keep working. I use three at work and have no complaints.

Workhorse no longer made, sad passing

Charles H. Harpole, Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: Here we record the sad passing of the PD-100 series of SONY grab-n-go solid video cameras. The PD-170 is discontinued, sadly, lackiing the glitzy features of HD, chip recording, etc.

Shawn Mielke, Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: Clean, beautiful images. Rugged construction. A fine run'n'gun videographic instrument, although after a year now I wish that I had gone with the shoulder cam version, the DSR-250, but that's another story... Likes: Wide range of shutterspeeds (1/4-1/10000).

Excellent Camera, Great Features

Push Button Gadget, Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: I bought this as a companion to my Sony DSR 200A almost two years ago. Its been a great addtion for two-camera shoots when color temperatures need to match. Both cameras shoot 16:9 (but not HD), which clients have asked for. Its great for interviews, spontaneous action, b-roll and so much more.
