I bought this camera 2 years ago, and have been using it quite a lot since, and I must say, it's a very good camcorder.
I have made many trips with it, and I'm the kind of guy that uses his camcorder in almost every situation possible. I have filmed quite a lot on skis, shooting my friends jumping or skiing, sometimes at quite high speeds, and never had any problem while shooting in cold weather (even VERY cold...). The stabilization may not be perfect, so I use a home made steadycam... (read more)

Having used these Sony DCR-PC120 digital camcorders, and their predecessors at a research and development facility for over 3 years now, I deceided to buy one myself. The pc120e was and still is the best camera i have ever used. although the ccd will be dated now, the photographs which are taken to the memeory stick are still very good quality compared to the competition. however, i was dissapointed by the bluetooth 'inconnectivity' of this unit. it seems that you need to buy a proprietry...

Wonderful camera, full of features. Quality of video is amazing for a 1 CCD camera. It does exactly whats required of it and despite the faults I've mentioned below, I wouldn't change the camera for anything, except perhaps a VX2000 or Cannon XM-2 :)
The stills camera is terrible at low light, even with the flash. The flash is far too powerful and tends to take snaps where the person is far far overexposed. Bluetooth is a bit of a gimmick. Nice idea but the Bluetooth feature could have been... (read more)

I have not yet perchased the PC120 yet, but after reading the reviews I am definately going to invest in one. The price is of course expensive, but the price reflects it's features and allround good reviews. I have shopped around for good prices-I found that the camcorder is relatively the same price allround, but take more considerations on accessories as these vary considerably. I agree with the comments made about the bluetooth function-it is near to useless. Once I have the PC120, i... (read more)

All in all...I love the Sony DCR-PC120. The quality of outdoor shots is as good as it gets. I've mixed in some video shot for my work, taken on the Sony PC120e with some shots taken on a 3 chip Pro Camera..and you'd never know..honest!
BLUE TOOTH: Ditch that Sony and increase the megga Pixel rateing of the digital stills to 2mb and or above..and I recon you'd sell millions of these babys! (read more)

I bought my camera to be used on vacations and for skydiving. For skydiving, it will be mounted to my helmet and will be with me in freefall. Every skydiver I know swears by the Sonys due to their reliability and keeps-on-tickin manners. I just got back from 11 days in Mexico with my PC120 and it worked flawlessly with my UV filter to protect the lens and a 128MB memory stick which I ended up with 160 photos and still had room for more. I would recommend this camera to anyone. However, I... (read more)

The 120BT Camcorder takes excellent quality shots with good to excellent color and white balance in all modes. The sound reproduction is amazing for such an odd placed microphone and can be greatly enhanced with a small mixer and external mike. on a video foray the blue tooth is so very handy to grab my emails and such at airports and hotels that I can drop carrying my Handheld and/or find a web-cafe, albiet , there is still a way to go for the Blue Tooth technology before it is truly...

I would like to know from those of you that bought the PC120, how often do you use the network Bluetooth function and is it any good? I have a PC115 (import) which doesn't have bluetooth. All other features are same as PC120. Am I missing out on a lot or is it just as simple to connect the USB and transfer my files that way? (read more)

For Everyone. Don't buy expensive camcorders. We bought a Sony DCR PC 120E and it was completely dead by sudden single splash of water. Manufacturer warranty does not cover for water. (read more)

The Sony DCR-PC120 is without doubt a great digital camcorder. The automatic mode is great, which is lucky because the ergonomics of controlling focus and exposure are nowhere near as good as on earlier models such as the pc10. The less used features like nightshot and flash mode fall easily to hand but the tools for semi serious control of video are a struggle to reach. (read more)

I bought this Sony DCR-PC120 digital camcorder after having my Digital8 camera stolen. I looked at the IP7 and after reading a review decided against it. The camera is really comfy to hold, it isn't as heavy as the PC110 or 100. The controls are all easily accessible once you get used to holding the camera. The zoom function takes a little getting used to as it is very sensitive. I am used to the nightshot and it is the same as my old D8. I like the fact that digital effects can be added on...
