Sony's 96GB HDR-PJ790 HD Handycam with Projector in black is a Full HD 1920 x 1080 video camera that shoots at either 60 or 24 progressive frames per second and stores the video on its 96GB of internal flash memory. The camcorder features BIONZ image processor and a back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor for improved low light sensitivity. The video camera features a wide-angle Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 10x zoom lens and a lens hood to help protect against flares. Sony's Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system with Active Mode provides for improved camera shake reduction and smooth moving images. Features such as zebra bars, expanded focus, and peaking, provide for greater exposure and focus control. A color electronic viewfinder is included along with a 3.0" flip out touchscreen LCD.
With the HDR-PJ790 you can capture in 24p mode, and use the CinemaTone gamma presets for cinematic effect. You can also take 24.1MP still photos while simultaneously shooting HD video (in some modes). You can choose from AVCHD or MP4 formats for image quality or smaller file sizes depending on your needs.
Built-in to the camera is a top mounted 5.1 channel surround sound microphone, and a manually adjustable audio level control and an Advanced Sound Processor allow improved audio recording. A dedicated headphone jack provides consistent audio monitoring while an external mic jack allows the camera to accept audio input from an optional external mic.
The HDR-PJ790 also includes a built-in 35 lumen projector that allows you project video at up to a 100" diagonal size without having to connect to a playback device. The camera has a dedicated microHDMI port that allows you to project media from your tablet, phone, laptop or other HDMI enabled device.
The camera can automatically create short movies complete with music and transitions based on preset configurations. Copy files from the camera's internal flash memory directly to an external USB drive using a Sony USB cable (external USB drive and cable are optional and sold separately). The camera can also access videos stored on the external drive for playback on an HDTV. The built-in USB connector plugs into a computer for file transfer or camera charging, with two minutes of charge time providing one minute of recording time.
The HDR-PJ790 comes with various automatic features to simplify the shooting process. For example, Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object, even if it leaves the frame and returns. Additionally when Face Detection identifies people in a scene, the camera engages an acoustic processor to reduce background noise, which combined with the camera's Wind Reduction results in making recorded voices clearer. The HDR-PJ790 includes Sony's Intelligent Auto mode, which analyzes a shot, and automatically selects the appropriate settings from among ten distinct scene modes. Other modes include NightShot, which provides for shooting in complete darkness using infrared and Sony's Golf Shot setting to capture a few seconds of motion as a sequence of 22 high-resolution still photos
