  • Good Image Stabilization
  • Good in Low Light
  • Great Picture Quality
  • Very Helpful Sales Staff


  • Limited Zoom

Best Uses

  • Weddings/Events

My last camcorder used mini dv cassettes which was ok, the advantage of using sd cards on this Sony is much better. I really like the built in projector too. And being a Sony the quality shows though by making everything easy to understand and use. If this is like many of my other Sony products, I am counting on many years of worry free recording with this unit.

Service and delivery comments:

Fast delivery, very accommodating service that provided me what I was searching for at the price I needed. I saved so much I was able to buy the three year accidental insurance. Normally not something I would buy, although with a camcorder that is going to be used a lot it affords peace of mind when using it.

Handycam with Projector a little disapointing


from Colo. Springs, CO

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 the other editing progams. But the camcorder records well and it's interesting. But then when I learned the remote is backordered until the first of April I was sort of mad. But as far as the camcorder is concerned it's a good product. Instead of the Projector (which would waste a lot of battery life) I would rather that the camcorder had the features I had on my first Handycam special effects such as: mosaic, solarization, pastel. There were a lot of special effects this camcorder didn't have that I thought it would have when I bought it.

    I glad that I'd purchase this HD video camera for my vacation trip & the photos you see are at the dead sea & over looking Nazareth in Israel or course & I'm look forward to using it again for the next event. Works well in low light.

    from Olympia, WA

    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, I hit play, hit the projector button, and aimed it towards the wall across the room and got a VERY NICE projection that was strong and vibrant! What a great camera!!!
