The Sony HDR-PJ230 Handycam features an innovative built-in projector and 8 gigabytes of internal memory. A sensitive back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor and a versatile Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 27x Optical Zoom lens combine to capture 1920 x 1080 60p Full HD video and 8.9 megapixel still photos. Built-in SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Active Mode minimises camera shake to ensure beautifully smooth results and allows the camera to be used in a variety of situations.

This Sony Handycam comes with Genuine Sony Accessory Kit valued $79 for a limited time offer.


The projector is capable of delivering a maximum 13 lumen output which can project an image as large as 2.5m (measured diagonally). Space on the internal 8 gigabyte memory or SD /Pro Duo memory cards can be maximised with the ability to pick one of two recording formats. The AVCHD format is designed for large screen HDTV’s and produces larger files sizes whilst the smaller MP4 mode is ideal for sharing online. With an Intelligent Auto Mode that analyses the scene and chooses the optimum settings on your behalf, the Sony HDR-PJ230 Handycam Camcorder combines innovative features with point and shoot simplicity.
