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.
