      THIS PRODUCT IS NICE AND LIGHT YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING PLUS IF YOU DON'T HAVE A TV TO HOOK IT UP FOR EVERONE TO LOOK AT WHAT YOU SHOOT LOVE THE PROJECTION PART.

        Comments about Sony HDR-PJ710V High Definition Handycam Camcorder with Projector (Black):

        I bought this camcorder to tape our church services every Sunday and I was a little relunctant to use it for the first time for a baby dedication service but thought I would give it a try.

        I had it on the second HQ quality setting which produces a AVCHD video. The image quality was absolutely breathtaking, couldn't ask for any better!

        When I went to play back what I recorded through the tv, I thought something was wrong because I kept seeing still images skipping through. It wasn't until I put the 32 GB SD card in my computer, that I realized it was capturing photos the entire time I was filming and all of my videos were intact. The still images were great considering that the subjects were constantly moving. This speaks well of the image stabilization feature.

        I am now taping at the Standard setting, which is still HD but doesn't take as long to convert it to a regular DVD that can be played anywhere. The picture is still excellent, even in the standard setting, [which is 3 steps below the highest quality.]

        I do not know of any bad points right now except to suggest that Sony should provide a complimentary SD card, even though you can use the internal memory. It is a pretty easy to use camcorder and I would highly recommend it.

          Comments about Sony HDR-PJ710V High Definition Handycam Camcorder with Projector (Black):

          For this price range it is the best camera on the market in my opinion. I use it to produce commercials, vlogs, and music videos. This is a great camera all around. The top of the line consumer grade camera. However, it does lose a little quality in darker settings.

            Comments about Sony HDR-PJ710V High Definition Handycam Camcorder with Projector (Black):

            Used for casual videos and occasionally as a static camera to record a local theatre production.

            I bought the camera as an upgrade to a 5 year old Sony HDR SR12. It is just a little easier to use and a little better in almost every aspect of performance (i.e. better resolution, better low-light performance, the projector, better battery life, a little smaller and lighter, better image stabilization...)

            I miss the viewfinder a little bit more than I expected (taking video of my kids playing tennis outdoors is more difficult with the LED) but the price difference with the PJ760 mostly makes up for the lack of a viewfinder.

            My wife borrowed it to shoot some video and commented that it was easier to use than the previous camera. That counts as a home-run since the SR12 was pretty easy to use.

            The lens hood doesn't make much sense to me (a casual user) since it makes the camera bulkier and harder to use. Smaler and easier is pretty important for quick, casual use.

              Comments about Sony HDR-PJ710V High Definition Handycam Camcorder with Projector (Black):

              This camcorder takes beautiful, grain-free 1080i HD video in low light. It also provides brilliant, accurate color in full light. Image stabilization is exceptional for handheld recording. The 60p option is probably only useful for fast moving action. It produces extremely large files. The 710 is a bit bulkier than most other camcorders but still acceptable for small hands. I have no use for the projector. Audio quality is much better than my previous Sony HDR-CX500V. The mic input will be useful. The Active Shoe will accept my Sony accessories from the CX500. Zoom range is adequate. The LCD resolution is refreshingly sharp. The function dial is useful. It is easy to switch between functions by simply pressing the button on the end of the dial.

I DID NOT buy this for the projector, lol but I have to say its kinda fun playing my kids water balloon fights in their room before they go to sleep!

                  Bought this to replace my Sony HDR-HC3, and so far I am very impressed. The picture & sound is excellent. The price was great too.

                    I purchased this to video my son who plays Division 1 soccer thus a very fast paced game. I needed a camera that would reduce the shake and capture all the action plus I really liked the opportunity to display it via the projector on any wall.He played in a tournament so took my camera and video taped his first game. Great shots and very good camera shake control. I took the vidoe without a tri or mono pod and was quite impressed with how well it perfomed. I am very much looking forward to the new season and some great video to help him improve and the family enjoy his efforts.

                    The past 3 years I've been struggling. I had a Canon with the worst Steady Cam and a Panasonic TM700 with great picture but it has bad low light and the worst sound ever even with an external mic.
                    The Sony HDR-PJ710V fixed all these problems. When you slip it in your hand you'll know it's something special. Each latch door screams quailty. The low light throws me back to the day of Hi 8. I've taken some great indoor video with little noise. The menus blow away the TM700. I've just had to glance at the manual. It's all straight forward. Worth every single cent!

                      Used this camera on and off for a month or better now.I almost purchased a lessor model from Sony but the Zeiss logo got me once again.This camera produces clean video that is hard to beat at this price range.On a good screen the video is really amazing. The image quality of the still shots don't measure up to the pixel count so don't expect to leave your still camera at home. The image stabilization is amazing that's for sure way to go Sony!I am not really all that happy with the slo-motion feture of this camera as it cuts the image quality when it shoots the slo-motion bursts and it's combersome to use so that's why I deducted a star.Oh and the projector is no gimmick at all! my friends just love how you can throw the videos on any blank dark wall.I agonized for a while about the price of this camera but it seems to be proving it's worth...

                        I enjoy this camera, works well. The few complaints I have are that its not having a viewfinder is a drag, takes a few seconds to snap a picture, and the projector can only be used with media shot on the camera.

                          I use the product mainly for my new baby, family outings, and sports. I love the night shot feature, since I do record in pitch black darkness. The way it feels in my hand is very comfortable, and when you zoom in and out, the lens is very quite. The lens floats around for anti shake, and with a full zoom, the shot is very stable. It is a bit heavy, but I got used to it. I have not used all the features yet, I will do an update in 30 days. As you know when you get something new it works great, I want to see how long this baby lasts! My last sony camcorder last me for 10 years and still going. The price is a bit heavy, but you pay for what you get.

                            Bought this just before doing some traveling and trekking through jungles in SE Asia. Needed something light weight and quick grab. Every feature of this model has proven well so far. The touch screen is brilliant and the clarity is spectacular. All of the functions that I needed were readily accessible and it performed very well. My only concern is for future abuse - the BOS is beautiful, but I worry about the lens rocking around in the housing. I beat it up pretty well - hauling it in a back pack and hastily switching between this and another - but every time I felt that lens clunk in quick motion, I felt a tinge of panic. But it has not given up on me. I've only used it for 5 grueling days so far, and they've been harder on the camera than on myself. As of this moment, I'm greatly impressed. I'll post a follow up and let readers know if it survives the next several weeks.

                              I use this camcorder to shoot videos of my friends doing their action sports. The 60p is awesome, the camera has good color and contrast, and the stabilization system is amazing! Hand held shots are really smooth. I don't even travel with a tripod anymore! The projector is super fun to show everyone the shots from the day, and I really have no complaints at all about this camera.
