The Sony 32GB HDR-PJ430V HD Handycam Camcorder with Built-in Projector features an 8.8MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and a 30x Sony G zoom lens. The PJ430V is capable of capturing Full HD 1080/60p and 24p video as well as 8.9MP still images. Balanced SteadyShot with Active Mode moves the entire optical block independently from the rest of the camera body for superior image stabilization. The camera's 32GB of embedded flash memory can record and store up to 11 hours and 40 minutes of HD footage. Users can enjoy their favorite memories virtually anywhere with the high-contrast projector built-in to the LCD panel, and the HDMI multi-terminal provides a connection for compatible, external devices.

Users can monitor and playback footage via a 3" Clear Photo Plus LCD display with 230K dot resolution and touch screen capability. Sony's Multi-Interface shoe is designed to provide a common interface across all of Sony's Digital Imaging products. The shoe allows users to attach a wide array of accessories including video lights, microphones or a Wi-Fi module (optional accessories sold separately). The Wi-Fi module can enable wireless control, transfer, and data backup.

Intelligent Auto mode analyzes your shot and automatically selects the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes, with 180 different possible combinations. Users can choose to record in one of two video formats, either high quality AVCHD or web optimized MP4. Finally, a built-in USB cable provides a connection to your computer for charging or file transfer.

1080/60p, 24p and 8.9MP Still Images
In addition to high definition 1920 x 1080 videos at 60p and 24p, the PJ430V can capture high quality 8.9MP still images. Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor is designed for compact cameras and camcorders. The sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, which maximizes the light gathering area per pixel and achieves better results in low light conditions.
Sony G Lens with 30x Optical Zoom
The lens has a 35mm equivalent of 26.8mm at the wide end of the focal range, and the 30x optical zoom is supported by a 55x Extended Zoom.
Balanced Optical SteadyShot
Balanced Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode moves the entire optical block independently of the rest of the camera body for superior image stabilization.
32GB Embedded Flash Memory
The built-in 32GB embedded flash memory can record and store up to 11 hours and 40 minutes of high definition video footage (in the HD LP recording mode).
Built-in 13 Lumen Projector
Users can enjoy their favorite memories virtually anywhere with the built-in projector, and the HDMI multi-terminal allows you to connect compatible, external devices. Brightness rated at 13 lumens is suitable for projecting images up to 100" diagonally.
3" Clear Photo Plus LCD Touch Screen
The 3" (16:9) Clear Photo Plus touch screen LCD features 230K dot resolution for sharp, bright, vivid images, enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene.
Tracking Focus
Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with the touch screen and have the focus automatically follow the selected object, even if it leaves the frame and returns.
CinemaTone Presets and 24p
For extra control over image expression, CinemaTone technology is used to deepen the color and recreate film-like color tones. Combined with 24p recording, you'll have some of the tools you need to fulfill your need for cinematic expression.
5.1 Surround Sound Microphone
Dolby Digital 5.1 channel recording captures active sounds coming from all directions, so you can experience your home movies the way you experienced them while recording.
Multi-Interface Shoe
Sony's Multi-Interface shoe is specifically designed to offer a common interface across all of Sony's Digital Imaging products. Quickly and easily attach a vast array of accessories compatible with this interface, including optional video lights, microphones and even a Wi-Fi module (optional accessories sold separately).
Optional Wi-Fi Module
Sony's optional Wi-Fi adapter, ADP-WL1M1, and a compatible smartphone or tablet can be used to remote control your camcorder. Remote functions include zoom, REC start/stop, and changing recording modes. You can also backup all your videos and photos on your PC without any wires.
Intelligent Auto Mode
Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes and wind noise reduction. There are 180 different combinations possible: Portrait, Baby, Tripod, Backlight, Landscape, Spotlight, Twilight, Macro, Low light and Wind Noise Reduction.
AVCHD or MP4 Recording Formats
Users can choose between the AVCHD or MP4 format. AVCHD provides premium video that can be enjoyed on large screen HDTVs and is ideal for capturing precious memories at special occasions, family vacations and other moments you want to treasure for a lifetime. MP4 is great for those moments that you want to quickly share on your social networks or store on the cloud.
Built-in USB 2.0 Cable
The built-in high-speed USB 2.0 cable provides an easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer, without the need for a separate cable. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it's out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time.
Direct Copy and Highlight Playback
Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder's handy playback features. Highlight Playback identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. You can even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel.
Golf Shot with Smooth Slow Record
Building on the slow-motion capture capabilities of Smooth Slow Record, Golf Shot captures a few seconds of motion as a sequence of up to 22 still images, which can be viewed/printed individually or as a composite "sequence shot" image. It's perfect for analyzing the nuances of a golf swing, tennis serve or other fast action sport or activity.
Microphone and Headphone Jack
The PJ430V features dedicated microphone and headphone inputs for expanded audio recording and monitoring options (external microphones and headphones sold separately).
Wind Noise Reduction
Wind Reduction mitigates noise and interference that is produced when wind passes over the microphone, giving you a clearer and more enjoyable sound experience.
Closer Voice with Face Detection
When the camcorder's Face Detection technology identifies people in a scene, an Advanced Acoustic Processor automatically reduces background noise, resulting in recorded voices with outstanding clarity and intelligibility.
Advanced Sound System
Premium video demands premium audio. This is why Sony has enhanced the sound system in select Handycam camcorders. A wider dynamic range allows for clearer and cleaner sound recording when shooting in areas with either too much background noise or where the audio level is too low. Additionally, manual audio level adjustment allows users to fine tune sound recordings. These improvements add on to existing features of Wind Noise Reduction and Closer Voice technology that work with the Face Detection technology to automatically reduce background noise.
Built-in Flash
The built-in flash will assist in shedding light on your subject when shooting still photos.
