Sony HDR-PJ30V

 

Looks like just another midrange camcorder… until you notice the built-in projector

A built-in video projector; Generally decent performance

Not especially great performance, though; Little in the way of manual controls

The Sony Handycam HDR-PJ30V is a middling camcorder, and, while its built-in projector is a cool feature, we’re not sure if it warrants the $950 price tag that comes with the model. The camcorder did well in most of our tests, and it really stood out...

I love this Sony HD --

 

The stabilizer is the best I have used in this generation of smaller cameras. The auto features are intuitive and do most of the best adjustments automatically. Transfer features are easy to set up and use. Video length and Battery life are very good.

Supper sharp HD in an easy to use package with great features

None so far

Awesome so far..

 

I upgraded from a DV handycam (6 years old) to this one. I must say so far very impressed with the product's performance and features. The interface is very user friendly and easy to use.

Feature packed, great picture, love it
