Pros: Projector mode is nice 'gadget' Video and still picture quality is good.
Cons: Additional cord to play/copy video to my own computer not supplied! Additional PROGRAM has to be downloaded and it is very INTRUSIVE during installation..I stopped it and it was difficult to remove!
Summary: Though it has 8 GB internal memory. It loses touch screen function.The lens opener is manual and the play function is very inconvenient to use.2012 model is cheaper and with the difference you can buy 32-64GB memory card.This 2013 entry level model is a giant step back.You are better off,buying 2012 entry level Sony HDR-PJ 200. I bought 2013 model and didn't like it and returned it. I have bought 2012 model PJ200 ,a camcorder that I had bought as a gift before.
