About Sony HDR-PJ790E

Make your filmmaking debut with ultra-smooth HD, a 5.1 channel mic and built-in projector to showcase your masterpiece. This 24.1 MP camcorder delivers Full HD 24p/60p recording, ideal for rich storytelling. What's more, you get manual control and minimal shake when shooting on the move with Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, plus a top-mounted mic for crystal-clear surround sound recording.

Precious moments become even more special the second time around when captured in exquisitely rich 1920 x 1080/60p/24p Full HD video. Notice the perfect photo op while recording? You can shoot crystal-clear 24.1 MP still images and video at the same time, so you won't miss an ounce of the action. Gather up the gang and share your fantastic footage on the big screen simply by connecting the camcorder to your compatible HDTV with an HDMI cable.

Featuring a high-contrast 35 lumen projector built into the LCD panel, you can transform your camcorder into a mobile movie theater by projecting onto a wall or virtually any flat surface. It's great for sharing footage on the fly and since it works with HDMI-compatible smartphones, laptops and tablets, you can also project YouTube videos, photos, full-length films and more. It's tons of fun for family movie night and super convenient for professionals who want to share presentations on the spot.

Complement your gorgeous video with equally beautiful audio. The top-mounted 5.1 surround sound microphone is independent and isolated from the camcorder for premium audio capture. Using the supplied windscreen drastically reduces the amount of background and wind noise by up to 90%. Plus, the new Advanced Sound System offers a wider dynamic range and crisper, cleaner sound while Audio REC level adjustments deliver even more creative control.

Blurry footage is a sure way to ruin any scene. Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for a greater degree of camera shake significantly reducing blur and delivering stunningly smooth video. By moving the entire optical block at once, this revolutionary technology maintains the integrity of the optical path for reduced levels of distortion and vignetting, plus noticeably smoother videos with significantly less blur.

The newly integrated multi-interface shoe opens up a world of accessories to enhance your videos. Attach lights, monitors and other accessories to help you get the best shots in any situation. Attach the optional wireless module (ADP-WL1M) and tap into Wi-Fi to turn your smartphone or tablet into a remote control, instantly upload footage to the web or wirelessly backup data to your PC.
