Sony HDR-PJ200

 

The Sony HDR-PJ200 is an entry-level digital camcorder with a fun and easy-to-use projector built right in, but video quality lags behind competitors.

Built-in projector. 25x optical zoom

Soft, grainy video. Mediocre low-light performance

In the end, the Sony HDR-PJ200 delivers mediocre video performance, especially for its price. If you're going to watch the video you shoot on your big-screen HDTV, you should consider another model. Sure, you're not going to find true HD options at the...

The Sony Handycam HDR-PJ200E is a rare breed of video camera that also features a built-in projector

 

Sony's Handycam HDR-PJ200E is a capable video camera that's tiny and barely a hassle to carry while on long trips. Its capture quality is more than decent and it features a built-in projector so that you can see the day's recordings in a large size on...

Built-in projector, great performance, light weight

Average stills resolution

Sony HDR - PJ200E Handycam is ideal for people who are not on a large budget and need a camcorder for daily family use. It is a great performer and gives you the convenience of shoot and project without having to spend on an additional projector.

Handycam with Projector a little disapointing

 

I was somewhat disappointed because of the smaller size--"how can this tiny thing be worth $329?" So I have to adjust my beliefs. The quality seems pretty good. The PlayMemories Home took too long to upload to the computer and isn't near the quality of...

Great film and images

No special effects of earlier Handycam models, projector wastes battery life

Consumer review by:

WOW!

 

Right out of the box I was amazed with this camera! The menus are VERY easy to manuver on the touch screen and the quality is just incredible. The projector is the coolest thing I have seen having it built into the camera. After shooting a quick movie,...

Too many pros to list

Only "Con" I have is that this model has no internal hard drive

Consumer review by:

Its the best cam ever

 

I recently bought this camera and I am amazed with its performance.FullHD + Projector.I also got two spare batteries (total 3), a HDMI cable and a VMC cable to connect it with a harddisk.

Its cheap. Has projector

Its projection size cannot be resized without moving the camera
