Help on a Sony PC 1000 Vid camera! Can't Post

I need a little help. I am considering buying a Sony PC1000 video camera and was wondering if anyone had one or knows anything about it? I am open to any opinions and suggestions.



thanks,
drakeshelby

Highly objective (almost scathing) review here:

http://www.camcorderinfo.com/...Camcorder-Review.htm

At quick glance (I didn't really read much of it) I noticed a big downer right away: a non-expandable battery compartment. This means you'll need lots of batteries to get through a day jumping - you can't stick any big ones on it.

Mentions it does well as a still camera (for a video camera) but that won't help you in the air.

I personally hope Sony someday gets rid of all that touch screen bs and goes back to putting actual controls on their cameras. Their ticking off a lot of people.

AMEN to that!
