Pros Size, large viewfinder screen, good battery life, docking station not needed to charge camcorder on the road
Cons Video quality, still image quality, no firewire cable in box, touch screen menu navigation
Summary I was looking for a very compact camcorder that could at least take descent still pics. I was debating between this camera and the DCR-PC109. Camcorder is definately small.... almost too small, but not really much smaller than the PC109. To effectively use the camera you almost have to use 2 hands (unless you have small hands). Video wasnt spectacular, but acceptable. Even though Sony touts the video and VGA still image quality to be spectacular, it is far from it. My 6 year old Canon has far better still image and video quality than the Sony. I cant help feeling that I might have been more satisfied with the PC109. All in all, its still a descent camcorder and because of its size, I can take it with me more often than with a larger camcorder.
Pros Great design Amazing 3" screen Bought it last week at a SonyStyle store. 16x9 recording capability Cradle Touch LCD Great handling and form-factor
Cons Small fingers needed No LCD wide screen support (can record in 16x9 but you'll see bars on the LCD) Steep price
