Pros Size, 2.4 inch LCD, 5 meg photos
Cons Battery must be unscrewed for access
Summary I own this NSC-GC1 sony camcorder. There is a learning curve in dealing with the controls and menu. But this is to be expected with such a tiny device. I take it everywhere. The video quality is just acceptable. Not as great as the Canon HD10! I have not experienced any inverted images when the LCD is rotated 270 degrees. Great Product to own!

Pros Good video, good stills
Cons controls need some getting used to
Summary ran this little gem through its paces on a mini-vacation, and it did a great job as a second still camera, and a primary video cam.....results were more than acceptable, and a breeze to upload to my computer for printout, email, or viewing.
Pros Small, light, not too expensive.
Cons Mediocre picture and video quality.
Summary I bought this for $150 and a 2GB stick impulsivley at WalMart. It works well enough if you don't think of yourself as a semi-proffessional filmographer. Don't expect it to be comparable to $400+ digital video cams.

Pros size - pocket
Cons picture/video quality
Summary great size...but video quality suffers not worth the price - unviewable - get the Apitek-hd for the same price - a little bigger...but you can view what you shot.
Pros Size, style, easy to use
Cons location of delete button, sensitive to light,
Summary First off I would like to say I would not use this cammcorder for taping all the really precious moments in your life, its' picture quality is good but not DVD or MiniDV good. I would use this sony for fun times or just capturing random clips for posting out to relatives or friends. The size feels about right and the shape feels ok in your hands for the first seven minutes or so, after that, you're just asking for an ice bag on your wrist. The location of the delete button is a little bit low on the device, two hands are needed to use the button. Button for recording and taking pictures are in thumbs reach, toggle buttons are slightly more of a stretch. Playback on the device is strong, microphone does not like a lot of wind. I noticed you need a very good amount of light in the room to get a bright picture, there is no option in auto light adjustment in its software, only for pictures. Using this sony for youtube is easy. Once you plug in the sony, a few things pop up and you could just click upload to internet to directly send your video to youtube or any other video site. Honestly, first time is tricky and frustrating, after the second try I got it. All in all, fun cammcorder to have around, its a efinite attention grabber. Plus, it comes charged too! Last complaint, memory card duo costs a lot, I bought 2gb for $50.
