Full HD video ; Audio quality ; Built-in projector

Menu could be better

The stand-out features of the Hanycam HDR-PJ30VE are its Full HD video recording and inbuilt pico projector. As far as cameras with built-in projectors are concerned, this one is among the best, but it's a product that might only appeal to hardcore...

Sony HDR PJ30

 

Simple set up and easy to use. Like the fact you can take stills as well as recordings. Quality is really good so no need to take seperate camera. Its small and neat easy enough to carry in bag
