Sony Handycam HDR-PJ410

 

Good quality pictures and easy to use menu. Projector and remote to smartphone. Dual recording formats.

Camera tripod fittings are backwards. Software does not enable more than one music track, on-line everyone has same problem. Battery runs down quick. Remote image on iphone is dull.

Nice features

 

I like the quality of recording, dual recording, menu layout And remote control and projector. I dislike the connection to tripod which with all four of my tripods the camera faces backwards. I dislike the folding screen catching on the tripod mount.

Seems a great Video Camera

 

Seems like a great video camera with lots of features. I was however a little dissapointed that it doesn't come with a Micro SD Card which you need before you can start using it.
