The Sony HDR-PJ30V High-Definition Handycam Camcorder with Projector is more than your ordinary high def camera. The PJ30 boasts a GPS receiver and projector too! Now, instead of sharing your videos and stills on the LCD screen you can project right onto the nearest wall, up to 60". And when you want to geo-tag your creations the built-in receiver lets you do just that. In addition, the GPS feature also allows you to archive your footage based on location for easy retrieval and sharing on social media sites.

When it comes to the more conventional aspects of the PJ30, you'll find all things you would expect for a camera of this caliber: a 3.0" touch screen LCD, 17x Extended zoom, optical image stabilization, a wide angle lens... You'll also find a few things that you weren't expecting, like 5.1 channel Dolby Digital Surround Sound recording. In fact, the camera is full of audio enhancements, such as Sony's built-in Clear Phase stereo speakers, mic and headphone connections, and wind noise reduction.

Shooting controls, like Intelligent Auto, help take the guesswork out of recording. Some other useful controls include Golf Shot and Tracking Focus. When it comes to features that come into play after recording, High Playback, Event Browse, and NAVTEQ maps help you organize, jazz up, and review your footage in fun and unique ways. And of course, the PJ30V comes with editing software included so you can edit and share your memories with ease.

Geotagging with Built-In GPS Receiver and NAVTEQ Maps

The receiver gives you the ability to view your current location on the LCD map display, as well as "tag" your shooting locations.
