Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.

SUMMARY
Delivers the quality and all the features you'd expect from Sony PLUS this has a built in projector for serious "Gee-Whiz" factor. Projector delivers decent functionality but comes at a significant size, weight, and cost.

There's all sorts of things I can talk about on this camcorder - we've had 6 video recorders including 2 Sony mini DV, one Flip, and one Sony Bloggie HD. I've also shot video on my phone and our various still cameras. I've been researching camcorders in the past few months to get up to HD and transition away from Mini DV, so the opportunity to review this camcorder came at an excellent time.

BUT... Before I get into any more detail, I'll get to the most important question you probably have if you are reading this review. HOW IS THE PROJECTOR AND IS IT WORTH IT?

The projector is a lot of fun to play with. If you like having envious friends drooling over your latest gadget, this is for you. Although it only puts out 10 ANSI lumens, it's reasonable for sharing videos. The overall experience reminds me of looking at vacation slides when I was young.

Sony claims that you can get up to a 60" (diagonal) image and you can actually get more, but the display gets to be very, very dim. I would say that in a lighted room, a 20-24" projected image is acceptable. Since brightness falls off as the square of the distance, it gets dim pretty fast and by the time you have a 30-40" display size you need to be in a very dark room for it to be viewable.

The focal length for the projector is fairly long - that 20" display requires 3 feet between projector and wall. At 5 feet you get a 33" diagonal display, and at 8 feet you get 53" diagonal.

I put the Sony HDR-PJ10 through its paces to create this video review. See my ill-timed pimple in high definition! The buzz you hear in the audio is actually cicadas, not a problem with the camera. It's hard to find a quiet place to film at my house during the day. In fact, the wind noise reduction feature cut down the cicada buzz by an impressive amount. Just keep in mind that the picture quality had to be reduced significantly in order to fit within Amazon's file size guidelines.

Bottom line, it's a great camera.

Cool camera, solid hardware. Nice quality output. Easy to use.
Some amazing options.
Wish capture was not so hard on my wrist. But, this is a common issue.
Looking forward to hours/years of usage and Sony makes a great product so this is easy to imagine.

OUT OF THE BOX:
First of all unlike other electronics that I have purchased, this camera did not have a "Get Started" that jumped out at me. I had to find it on page 14 of the manual. That's okay, kinda.
I found it funny that their first step, was Turn off the camera by closing the LCD. Either they intuitively know people are just going to dive in, or they wrote the instructions for later usage.
Out of the box, the battery had enough charge to use, but predictably their first step was to install the battery and charge it by installing it in the camera. Took me a minute to figure out how to put the battery in, as it had a slider, so I tried to slide it. Apparently you drop in and then slide. But other than that, this step went seamless. You get a USB cable that can go into your computer, or the transformer that goes into the wall. One comment on the charging method: If you had a second battery, you would have to charge it right in the camera which means you have to plan ahead to have two batteries to use.

You also get component connectors to hook into your TV, so you have this ability right away. But you also have a mini HDMI connection in the camera(no cables) so this can be an option,if you can use it . You need an adapter to use the HDMI connection with a standard size HDMI cable, so we have not tried the HDMI hook up yet.

HARDWARE:
A solid well made camera. Hey it's a Sony, would you expect anything less? Yeah I have a bias, but I have had good luck with Sony.

This is a video of the Sony HDR-PJ10 HD Handycam Camcorder in action.

** NOTE: This video is choppy, particularly during zooming or panning, because it has been downsampled from the original HD video (I had to shrink the video down to size because Amazon limits the size of uploaded videos to 100 MB). The original high resolution video is of extremely high quality -- the picture is sharp and the playback is smooth. **

The video does exhibit a problem that is present in the original video -- chromatic aberration (colored fringes around images). The chromatic aberration can be quite pronounced under bright lights (the problem is most apparent in the snow-crested mountains in the video). Apart from this shortcoming, the quality of the HD video is really quite good.

Moving on... there are a few features I love about this camcorder:

- 42x Zoom
The zoom capability is impressive. The 42x extended zoom allows you to take incredibly close-up shots. The electronically controlled zoom function allows for very fluid zoom movement.

- Projector
The light output of the projector is a dismal 10 lumens (dedicated projectors have brightness ratings upwards of 2000 lumens). The largest projected image (measured diagonally) that the projector can produce that's reasonably bright/viewable is about 50". Still, despite this limitation, the projector is a very practical and useful feature -- it allows friends and family to gather round and comfortably preview the videos you've shot.

- Long Battery Life
The battery has enough power for about 2 hours of recording or 30 minutes of projection.

---
I'm really pleased with the Sony HDR-PJ10 High Definition Handycam Camcorder. If you're looking for a camcorder, this one is definitely worth consideration.
