Sony HDR-PJ200E HD Camcorder With Projector


Fits into the hand nicely ; Fits into most pockets ; Small enough to take anywhere ; Very easy to use ; Great definition when played back to television or computer ; Good display ; Built-in projector quite amazing ; Easy to fit battery ; Good method...

Cost of additional batteries - longer duration batteries ; Cost of insurance for repairs, should it be necessary ; I worry as to how long the Handycam projector will last and if it can be repaired should it fail

Sony HDR-PJ200E HD Camcorder With Projector


Clear viewfinder, good control ergonomics, easy transfer to PC

A few too many items buried in the menu. Following faces and taking stills while filming video is a distraction. Stored files not always compatible with DVD players etc

Sony HDR-PJ200E HD Camcorder With Projector


Light weight, easy to carry, good images in video, value for money

Do not like software that comes with the camcorder, I will have to buy a new bundle to process video. It should come with a case, but I can not fault the camcorder

Sony HDR-PJ200E HD Camcorder With Projector


For me this is the ideal video camera, I don't shoot much video, I do more stills, so this is great to put in your pocket ready for use, its starts quickly, is easy to stop and put away and uploading to your PC for editing is a breeze
