Written on: 27/05/2003 by Dullwit. (1 review written)

Good Points
Nice and small very light to carry around
Pull out screen..brilliant
Easy access to video in out and av stuff
DV in as well as out..well done Sony!
Stills facility useful
Good Battery life
Easy Menu system to follow
Very usefull HOT shoe on top of camera

Bad Points
Mic is stereo but on top of camera..I bought a little Boom Mic which is better
Volume "In Camera" when playing back near to useless...unless I'm going deaf!
Supplied 8mb Sony Stick card...very mean Sony!
Only 1.5 megga pixxel stills With all that technology surely that could have been increased Sony?
BLUE TOOTH: What the hell do you need all of that for...even if you could set it up...it's so slow!
MPEG4 Mode.....why? I am keen for someone to explain that to me?
You have to have teh screen out when using play back to gain access to Fast Forward/Play etc...but not a real problem really!

General Comments
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!

Sony wont ditch Bluetooth an they wont give you a bigger Memory Stick than the 8mbs, but with the new DVR-TRV80 you've got your 2m pixel stills.
<br>I owned a DVR-TRV50 which cost £1200 when I bought
<br>it in November. Listed price was £1400. The 80 is a distinct upgrade and I can get it for £899! Shows what can be done by the manufacturers.
<br>Whilst nearly all of the menus are viewed and accessed through the touchscreen it really needs protection against glare. Like all LCDs it needs an innovation that will allow a small surrounding umbrella like hood to be expanded around the screen when required, to shade against the sun.
