Try next model if you want to project stuff not recorded in the camera

Gustavo Antunez Abdala, Amazon

  • Summary: Camcorder is amazingly tiny and powerfull. Quality is ok! We bought this also to use to Project movies or whatever, but unfortunatelly, even trying to add some stuff at the memory with the same format, camera does not recognize those files created or modified outside the camera.... Next model has a input projector...

Not a good buy.

Roy R. Meadows, Amazon

  • Summary: Who would buy a camera if they knew they had to go on a site and download the programs to make it function. Everything you try out of the box give you a message you can't do that.

  • Summary: The camcorder seems to work okay, but the operational instructions are bad to follow. It will take time to learn from hands on experience.

  • Summary: it is light, easy to use and good set of tools, but has not good user manual and is not easy way to move videos to your pc if you are not a bit of computer geek. you have to download and pay for an extra software that dose not come with the camera !!!!

Blurry projector images!

  • Summary: Good camera for the price ($235). The only thing that is horrible is the "projector", spend a few more $$$ and buy a better camera.

"Quality & providing accessories are poor w.r.t price."

pg-durgapur, CNET
1 July 2013
  • Pros: The only value addition in present model is the inbuilt projector. Sony must provide old buyers a compatible adapter through which external source can be used for projection as well as a multi cable at free of cost before bringing any future change.
  • Cons: This new cam lacks most of the user friendly features. Projector has no facility to project from external source. Biggest drawback is wrong positions of zoom & still buttons. SONY is not providing multicable so can1t amplify sound during projection.
