The sony software is terrible. I had to use other software to even watch videos, and to record to DVD. Very disappointed. Haven’t used the camera much yet, but am having issues with proper focus at distance. Not much use having zoom if picture is fuzzy.

How Good?

Great camera with a high quality image. the stabilisation system is so good allowing smooth walking or running shots without the need for further stabilisation equipment. The only downside seems to be an error with the focusing which is some kindetails of magnetic fault.

    A top of the range HD camcorder from Sony that’s remarkably compact bearing in mind the features it has. These features, in brief, include a sophisticated lens with anti-camera shake mounting, a touch sensitive screen, a working adjustable viewfinder, inbuilt charging via a USB port with no large…

    A far more superior improvement than Sony CX730. Why bother to buy the latter when there are more features in PJ810E. The projector just work fine and display are equally good.

    Have owned camcorders since the first one I purchased in 1984, an analogue JVC camera and portable recorder. This new unit is the best yet with excellent high quality and detailed pictures with the best image stabilisation I have ever used.

    Love it and that fact that it projects very good. But I would have been greater if it had a flash

    This is a really useful small camera with a lot going for it – I use it for local newsgathering, so it gets used quite a lot! It replaces a Sony CX550 which was brilliant, and it isn’t quite up to that standard, but it records a very clear and clean 1080HD video, and the stabilisation system works…

    This video camera is a top of the line consumer camcorder. It has an Exmor R CMOS sensor (1/3″) with Sony G lens for high-quality video and image capture. It has 32GB built-in memory, and a memory expansion slot for SD/SDHC/SDXC cards and memory stick micro.

    Have had a series of Panasonic and Sony video cameras over the years but am very pleased with this one. When considering its purchase I thought that the picture projection was a bit of a gimmick but having used it to review the days footage, whilst on holiday, it really is good.

    Nice quality Camcorder – it has a great lens, far better picture quality than the less expensive Sony camcorder I used to use. Superb feature set, good low light function and best of all, you approach Pro quality in a hand-held size! It is comfortable in my hand.

    I’ve recently purchased the HDR-PJ810. Fantastic camera! The Balanced Optical Image Stabilization is amazing, and video clarity is very acceptable for my needs (mainly for family events, filming the kids growing up, etc.

    Gave three stars because of benefit of doubt. All the things mentioned arrived in about 6 days per ground shipping in good shape, no damage. Video quality is good (compared to my previous entry level Sony branded handy cam) I took this one mainly because of the projector.

    Fantastic quality pictures and a superb array of easily accessed features and manual controls. The projector works well too. The supplied battery doesn’t last long, so it’s well investing in a larger genuine NP-FV70. Would also recommend an LCS-U21 case.

    fantastic images. compact and projector is great. Battery is a bit of an issue as does not last and for any half day event you would need 2 batteries

    Yes five star, BUT…Sony seem to have followed Canon lead with the stabiliser. If you do a good job of holding steady in the active mode it just turns itself off after a few seconds, which is really frustrating. My CX730 does not do this.

    I am learning the camera and so far it is really good. I will know more when I record recital. One thing I don’t like is everytime you change battery you have to re enter the time, date , etc. I called sony and they said that’s the way it is.

    Wanted a camcorder with a viewfinder. This item has solved the problem very very well. It takes photos or video via viewfinder or screen. It also projects the videos via an in built projector which works well on a suitable wall.

    Excellent camera. Good case. Accouterments with the camera are not worth much, but they didn’t cost much either. Very stable on long range shooting. Built in projector works very well. Software that you can download free for the camera processes DVDs easily.
