Show Your Films Anywhere

As you run up and down the touchline filming the annual lads v dads match in Full HD on your Handycam PJ220E, you can’t believe what you’re seeing. Barely 10 minutes played and the dads are already two goals down. To make matters worse, your husband is the goalkeeper -- and you’re the coach.

By half–time it has become a four goal deficit. So you quickly usher the players indoors, dim the clubhouse lights, and aim the built–in projector at the wall. It’s time for some serious video analysis.

Forty–five minutes later, the dads have turned it around to earn a famous draw. Time to gather both teams together for a group photo -- and with your wide–angle Carl Zeiss lens, you can even fit the subs in.

For fast and furious action, choose 50p mode for smoother results.

Share Films Anywhere with a Built-in Projector

What are you waiting for? On the beach, in the car, even at a wedding -- for videos that deserve to be seen, a built–in projector gives you and all your friends the chance to experience them together. Dim the lights and see a bright, clear 13 lumens picture with vivid colours up to 250cm (100 inches) big. When night falls, you can even project outside on surfaces big or small.

Smooth Shooting on the Fly

When things get a bit bumpy, SteadyShot with Active Mode image stabilisation makes every scene smooth and steady. Motion sensors effectively track the movement of your subject and reduce the effect of shaky handheld shooting. It even works when zooming or in low light.

Shoot in wide–angle with Carl Zeiss

When you’re ready for your close–up, a Vario–Tessar lens by Carl Zeiss is the right lens for the job. With a lightweight and compact design, it’s equally at home with wide–angle shots or telephotography. Even in low light, you can film your memories in detail, with sharp, defined contrast at all times.

Capture Smooth Action Footage with 50p

When you really want to see the smallest of movements, a high bit rate with 50p progressive shooting mode delivers the image quality, smoothness and detail that you need. It’s also ideal for fast–moving scenes, anything from world–class athletics to a school sports day.

Get the Detail in Low-light

Sunrise or twilight, indoors or out -- for professional looking detail, colour and tone an Exmor R CMOS sensor won’t let you down. Twice as sensitive as conventional sensors and with 8.9MP still image resolution, it renders sharp and lifelike scenes in every situation and all conditions. Even without a flash, a camcorder with an Exmor R CMOS sensor will capture clear picture quality every time.

The Sony PJ220 is an HD Handycam sporting all the usual features, but with one extra -- a built in projector. The superb picture is near broadcast quality and can easily be tweaked in iMovie, Final Cut Pro or your favourite video editing software. However, the lack of a microphone input means that this camera can never be used for more than general background noise or for close face-to-face filming if you want speech to be audible. The tiny built in projector is surprisingly effective in a moderately dim environment but, again, the lack of an input means that you are limited to only watching what the camera has recorded, rather than being able to show off your edited results or use it as a handy projector for a laptop.

Picture quality
This is a 1 CCD not a 3 CCD camera, which means that, technically, it will not produce a 'broadcast quality' image. That said, I was very surprised by the clarity and sharpness of the image, though less thrilled with the colour fidelity and the slight tendency to over-expose on faces. The lens gives 32x zoom with a maximum width of 29.8mm equivalent. 30mm (which is what it is really) means you can get close enough to be able actually pick up someone talking in a relatively quiet venue without introducing too much distortion on the face. At the long end the image is pleasantly stable thanks to the SteadyShot image stabiliser.

You can also take stills with it, at 8.9 MP, although the result may be no better than your smartphone which may well have a higher resolution.

There are white balance, exposure and focus controls available through the menu, though they are fairly cumbersome to get at and rudimentary. You have no control over focal depth except automatically through the exposure control.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
More and more gadgets and gizmos keep getting added to cameras and camcorders it's getting difficult to compare one against another. This is an example of that trend. And I have to ask why? The camcorder appears pretty close, if not identical, in specification to the Sony CX280 Full HD Handycam - Black (27x Zoom), which is a decent camcorder for its price range. So is the addition of a projector worth the extra £100? On this outing I would have to say no.

The projector is limited in its ability to project onto anything other than a pure white matt surface in almost total darkness. Increase the background light and it significantly impacts on the clarity of the image. To project to a decent size and maintain definition is another problem. If the surface you project onto is anything other than a matt white it's not rocket science to realise it's going to affect the colours in the projected image. Next problem you have is sound quality; it's not good, and the louder you have it the tinnier it sounds. Add into this mix battery life issues when you use it as a projector and you begin to wonder why Sony bothered to introduce this range. Basically if you're going to use it as a projector you need to be near a power point, or carry a couple of spare batteries as it sucks power like a vampire loose in a blood bank. A worry for me would also be what happens when (not if!) the projector bulb goes and needs replacing - cost?

Also, yet again, no memory card or built in internal memory like the Sony Handycam PJ260 Full HD Camcorder with Built in Projector - Black (16GB, 8.9MP, 30x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD and you need memory to record.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've been a user of Sony camcorders for a few years so know what to expect from their products and generally I'm not let down in terms of the features and quality of the video. This camcorder is an upgrade over my CX130 which I've had for the past two years and retains many of the same features.

It shoots video in full HD at 50P if required, has optical image stabilisation, a wide angle lens and something new to me is the built in projector. The video quality overall is great and I use the camera mainly for vlogging and so on, I always get compliments over the video quality. I mainly shoot indoors and this does a pretty good job in low light settings. I'm able to connect this up to my Mac and import the footage quite easily into Final Cut Pro X so no issues there. The wide angle lens is something I always appreciate as I have to have the camera quite close to me so the more I can fit in the image the better, however I would like it to be slightly wider than it currently is. I only say that because I trialled a Panasonic entry level model and it had a lens that was slightly wider which I liked. As for the projector, it's a nice touch but I don't really know when I would use it. I guess it's ideal if you holiday a lot and want to show friends and family the footage that you've taken, but I suspect most people would just transfer it to a laptop or something, but it's there for a quick fix if you need it. The quality is okay, it's obviously just meant to show your footage and not to be taken seriously as a projection system and it works without any issues. The flip out screen is an issue for me, my old Sony camcorder has a 3 inch touch screen, whereas the screen on this is smaller and has controls to navigate the menus.
