Sony Handycam HDR-PJ620


Light fits in your hand like a glove and all controls in reach. Projector is brilliant a really great feature. so many other adjustable settings for all types of use with poor light or over sunny periods. Great value for money.

Battery life is a little short but you can always buy anther as back a up.

Projector. Ideal for viewing without worrying about compatible TV or connection

Video and photo quality is not even as good as my handy DVD cam I bought over 10 years ago. And that was only 0.9MP. HDR-CX625 equally the same. Better of spending £400 more and buying the Sony FDR-AX53.
