Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.

Verified Purchase
Another family member had gotten the earlier model of this camcorder and liked it so I thought I'd give this one a try, even though the few existing reviews were not great.
Yes, there is no audio in on this camera, even though it is listed as having one. Here's the thing, if I'm going to be doing a project that I need good audio for I'm going to record it on a separate device and sync it later anyway, so that wasn't a huge downside.

Big differences between the earlier HDR-PJ200 and this:
- This camera only takes MicroSD(HC&XC) and Memory Stick Micro, not full size SD
- The screen is not touch enabled which (for whatever reason) makes it much easier to see in bright sunlight
- The battery compartment is enclosed, so you can't put a large capacity battery hanging off the back
- The projector has HDMI in!

- The projector is a really cool feature and with hdmi input it's extremely versatile
- Full 1920x1080p 60fps recording
- You can control the camera remotely! Viewing what it sees, starting/stoping, and zooming with your smartphone! (the camera becomes a wifi hotspot and you connect with an app)
- 9.2 MP stills

- Single joystick to control most features (only dedicated buttons are snapshot, zoom, record, play mode, and projector). Honestly, if there was a dedicated button to switch from 9.2MP still mode to movie mode I would be happy.
- Can't zoom in on photos in review mode. I'm used to Canons that allow you to zoom in while reviewing pics to see if they are focused, can't do that with this guy
- Battery compartment is enclosed (can't hang high capacity battery off the back)
- Camera slightly slow to power up. 9 seconds from cold start, 3.5 seconds from previously on mode.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Length: 8:04 Mins
Sony has put projectors in some of its camcorders for the last couple of years. They were a unique feature, but those earlier models would only play video stored on the camera itself.

Now the feature is much more functional thanks to an HDMI input that will allow other devices to be projected onto a screen through the camera. I was able to run both my Macbook Pro and an Xbox One through the camera's projector. Both worked great with no latency at 720P. In a dark room the image quality is surprisingly good considering the entire projector is sandwiched onto the camera's built in screen. It won't do as well in a better lit room (it's only 13 lumens). This is a very useful feature, especially given that the projector really doesn't add much bulk to the rest of the device.

So what about its main use as a video camera? Not bad. Image quality is as good as cameras in the same price range from Canon. Low light on this Sony camera is actually a little better than the Canon HF R50 I tested in the right conditions.

The zoom has integrated digital mode that kicks in automatically when the optical length runs out. I could not find any way to disable that feature nor is there a good indication of when the digital mode begins and the optical mode ends. Sony says that there's some active processing to improve the quality of the image, but it's far from perfect.

The stabilization is very, very good. Walking shots are smooth and stationary hand held shots tend to rival the kind of stable video you'd get from a tripod. Very impressive.

The charging cable / USB sync cable is integrated into the handstrap. The camera will charge through the USB while plugged into a computer. It also supports SDHC/XC cards as well as Sony's proprietary M2 format.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Sony HDR-PJ275 offers a lot to the average consumer at a fair price. The built-in projector (up to 100" size videos with 13 lumens) works well, and a micro-HDMI port on the camcorder (HDMI In) offers the option to project from laptops, tablets, HDTVs and smartphones, as well as gaming systems and other devices. *(Cable included with camcorder.)

Connecting via Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication - found on smartphones and laptops like the Sony VAIO SVF1532DCXB 15.5-Inch Touchscreen i5 Laptop is a real bonus to this camcorder, as is the combined 54X (optical and digital) zoom; which can be turned on or off, and wide 29.8mm wide angle Carl Zeiss lens. Both video and stills are very sharp! 1920 x 1080P Full HD at 60 frames per second, offers video clarity that looks equally good on a small or big screen, and 9.2 MP photos are stunningly good!

NOTE: Mac users... do an internet search for "Convert Sony PJ275 60p AVCHD to AIC .mov for iMovie" to learn how-to!

NOTE: Regarding the Wi-Fi connection, you can use a tablet or smartphone to control the camera if they are paired with this camcorder and using a app to do so.

SteadyShot image stabilization; which you can turn on or off, does well when sweeping or moving with the camera, but struggles at full zoom. (Use a tripod and it's no issue.) Low light video looks good and the camcorder compensates very well in back lit shooting situations.

The option to add one of 7 different picture effects: Toy Camera, Pop Color, Soft High Key, Partial Color, Retro Photo, High-Contrast Monochrome, and Posterization are nice additions.
