Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10 review

 

When I first saw Sony's PJ series of camcorders, with their built-in projectors, I flashed back to all the times I sat waiting for certain friends of mine to hook up their various devices to the TV in order to share their vacation videos. They...

The Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10's built-in projector and stereo speakers are very convenient for sharing home movies. Plus, the HD camcorder has the same wide-angle lens, built-in USB cable, and good automated performance as its projector-free siblings.

If you don't plan to use the projector, the rest of the camcorder's performance and feature set are a bit underpowered for the money.

You're paying a couple hundred extra for the projector in the otherwise frills-free Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10 over its identical twin, the CX160. But if you regularly show off your vacation videos in the homes of friends and family then it's worth it.

Broke with poor service from Sony.

 

My HandyCam power adaptor stopped working. It is an AC L200. I tried to find another one in Bundaberg but no luck. Sony parts are non existent here. Then tried their online website. No stock until end of March. The replacement part is $99 and repair is...

Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10

 

Built in projector for shared viewing.

Position of memory card slot. If you are using a tripod and the ascociated plate you cannot change the card without taking the camera off the tripod and removing the plate.

Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10

 

built in projector is a brilliant idea!

Camera continues to record for a few seconds after you think you have paused it - leadng to some very jerky pictures of the ground, feet etc. Also having diffculty getting to grips with editing footage using the supplied PMB soft ware.

Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10

 

I have found the handy-cam very easy to use with plenty of i-cons to help you as you go along. It is very light with a very very sharp picture and a bonus of a built-in projector.

I found only one bad point that is. If the product was supplied with a screen film, which would save the screen from having a lot of finger prints all over the screen which i found made the screen very difficult to see when it,s sunny
