Sony DCR-PC110

 

Sony's DCR-PC110 Mini DV Handycam camcorder is versatile and powerful. It's the world's first home-use camcorder to record megapixel (1152 x 864 pixels) still images and MPEG movie clips with audio to Memory Stick? media.

Sony DCR-PC110 Camcorder Review - Sony MiniDV Camcorders

 

The Sony PC-110 is the long awaited sequel to the Sony PC-100. Although it's a matchbox style camcorder with bottom loading tape, the positive features outweigh the set backs. The 110 model is a great camcorder and you get what you pay for.

Sony Handycam DCR PC110E

 

First, the size of this camcorder is like the size of my palm. I can carry this all day long in my hand and I wouldn't get tired. No more of those lugging a whole camera bag just to put your camcorder it. It even fits in my pocket if I need to put it...

Small size. Professional Quality. Digital photos

too small

Good performance and sleek design.

 

This camcorder is one of the most user friendly and manouverable camera I had the opportunity to try. It has a sleek design, fitting preety well in one's hand, a good weight and great technical features. The interface is easy and the touch-screen makes...

Easy to use and handle

Low battery autonomy

Sony DCR-PC-110

 

It is a great camcorder. You could do any thing with it. I use it to make movies with my friends. I have tons of fun. Since it's so compact, it's great for traveling. The tapes,batteries, and memory sticks are compact too. Just buy a small bag for it...

Compact,Easy to use,Great in just about every way

needs a little more pixles, it only has 1.7 when most others have 2.0

Small, easy to use, convenient, feature rich

PC110e - Oh yes, this is the one!

 

I originally purchase the PC110e to replace a JVC DVX707 digital camcorder which was ok, but doesn’t even come close to the sheer quality and craftsmanship of the PC110e. The 707 was far to square, not at all aesthetically pleasing as the PC110e...

Style, Image Quality, Features

Price (for some), Low light noise

One of the best HANDYcams

 

I was looking to replace my JVC DVL-805u digital camcorder with a unit that has standard video-in capabilities so I can transfer some of my old VHS and Hi-8 tapes to Mini-DV format (and port them to my computer via 1394 Firewire so I can convert them...

Megapixel, Long Battery Life, Portability, and features

Slow autofocus, digital pics usually reddish or too bright (because of flash)

Consumer review (epinions.com)

Better value now at today's price!

 

I purchased the PC110 as a photo partner to my Sony DSC-S85 digital still camera. It gives me great capability on those photo jaunts to have the flexibility of a superior digital still and video camera, with the bonus that they share the same power...

Full-featured, smooth operation, great optics, decent sound.

not the easiest to hold, mediocre software package, minimal accessories provided

Product Specifications

The Sony DCR-PC110 Digital Handycam Camcorder offers high resolution and lots of professional features. Featuring a 1/4" CCD with 1,070,000 pixels, it provides stunning detail and clarity, with exceptional video and still image performance. Carl Zeiss lens provides the professional performance you need. Rechargeable Lithium Ion battery means no "memory effect" like other battery types can experience. It also has a pop-up flash and MPEG clip mode. The dual function of the DCR-PC110 brings new ways of enjoyment to customers. It allows them to record high quality digital video on a mini DV tape; besides, customers can use the MPEG movie function and JPEG function to shoot short movie clips up to 42 minutes 40 seconds or Mega-pixel still images respectively. With the MPEG movie function, users can record the MPEG movie clip directly on a Memory Stick in Video mail mode (160 x 112) or Presentation mode (320 x 240), or transfer a recorded video from the DVD or VCR and save it in the MPEG movie format on a Memory Stick. Progressive Shutter System, from the combination of interlace scan CCD and mechanical shutter functions, allows for high-quality still images with very little blurring. Customers can produce creative digital overlaps or blue-screen effects on images by choosing the Memory Chroma Key, Memory Luminance Key or Camera Chroma Key.
