The Sony HDR-PJ200 High Definition Handycam Camcorder (Black) shoots Full HD 1920 x 1080 video and can also project your home movies up to an 100" diagonal screen. The camcorder can take 5.3 megapixels still images as well. It features a memory card slot that can support up to 64GB memory cards for ample storage capacity. The camcorder is equipped with a back-illuminated Exmor CMOS sensor that's ideal for low-light situations. Plus, it features a wide angle Carl Zeiss Vario- Tessar Lens that supports 25x optical zoom, 30x extended zoom and 300x digital zoom. There's also a 2.7" touch screen Clear Photo LCD display for easy recording and instant playback.
The HDR-PJ200 comes outfitted with several video enhancing features. It has face detection with voice enhancement and noise reduction. There's a Tracking Focus function that follows selected subjects as you record. The microphone features two channel Dolby Digital surround sound for dynamic and vivid surround audio. The camcorder also has Intelligent Auto, which supports 120 different scene combinations. There's even a wind noise reduction function that provides clear voice recording.
Sony added a few playback and connection conveniences as well. The HDR-PJ200 features Event Browse, which groups video and stills by each particular recording session automatically. It also has a Highlight Playback function that creates movies with transitions and soundtracks for you automatically. With the HDR-PJ200, you can use the Direct Copy feature to transfer your HD footage directly to a hard drive without even using a PC. However, if you do want to upload videos onto Facebook and YouTube, the camcorder comes with a built-in USB cable, as well as editing and application software.

I was somewhat disappointed because of the smaller size--"how can this tiny thing be worth $329?" So I have to adjust my beliefs. The quality seems pretty good. The PlayMemories Home took too long to upload to the computer and isn't near the quality of the other editing progams. But the camcorder records well and it's interesting. But then when I learned the remote is backordered until the first of April I was sort of mad. But as far as the camcorder is concerned it's a good product. Instead of the Projector (which would waste a lot of battery life) I would rather that the camcorder had the features I had on my first Handycam special effects such as: mosaic, solarization, pastel. There were a lot of special effects this camcorder didn't have that I thought it would have when I bought it.
Camcorder is working very nice.. but i paid 419.99 and after month price went down to 329.99.. thats not right.. i will request them to match the price.
This brand is worth a million
