Smooth Shooting Meets Easy Sharing
Queenstown, New Zealand. You’ve just done your first bungee jump and you’re telling everyone about your spectacular dive off the bridge. Your kids burst out laughing --they reckon you looked anything but spectacular. And they’ve got the video to prove it.
Before you know it, they take your Handycam PJ420VE, point the built–in projector at the wall, and there it is. There you are up on a big screen for all to see.
Bungee cord fastened around your ankles, you shuffle to the edge of the platform and… OK, they were right, it wasn’t the most elegant of jumps. But you’re still pretty proud of yourself. So you send the clip wirelessly* from the PJ420VE to your smartphone and share it on Facebook to show everyone back at home.
Film, Move, Zoom with Enhanced Image Stabilisation
But the PJ420VE isn’t just about being free to share your videos. It’s also about the freedom to move, to pan and zoom quickly -- whether you’re at a party or filming your kids playing on the beach -- without the scene jumping and shaking.
With Balanced Optical SteadyShot the entire lens unit and sensor “float” within the camcorder casing, so the lens unit maintains a level position. As a result, Balanced Optical SteadyShot compensates for up to 13x more camcorder shake than traditional stabilisation -- even when zooming.
Use the Projector to Watch Anything
Found the next big viral hit on YouTube? Got some old home videos stored on your laptop, or perhaps you’ve just downloaded the latest Hollywood blockbuster. Connect via HDMI and you can enjoy them anytime, anywhere, using the built–in projector.
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.
Upload and Share with Wi-Fi Connectivity
With a Wi–Fi adapter* (sold separately) you can send videos to your smartphone or tablet from your Handycam then share them online with the PlayMemories app. You can also control your Handycam with your smartphone. Start and stop recording, zoom in, take a photo, set a timer or turn on the flash -- all from your phone.
Track Your Travels with GPS
Remember that idyllic deserted beach you found after hiking through the forest? Where were you again? With GPS tagging built in, your photos and videos can tell you exactly when and where you were. You can also see your different shooting locations pinpointed on a map -- just select one to play back the footage you took there. It makes it that little bit easier to bring back the memory, even years later.
Fit More into Every Frame with a G Lens
Taking a big family photo? With a wide angle at 26.8mm, the G Lens will make sure nobody is left out of frame. Designed specifically to work with our Exmor R CMOS sensor and our powerful BIONZ processor, the G Lens delivers remarkably sharp, clear Full HD video and still images. Because it’s wide–angle, it’s great for filming in tight spaces where you don’t have much room for manoeuvre. And with up to 55x extended zoom, it gets you closer to the action too.
