Detailed Features


1920x1080 Full HD Recording w/5.3MP still image capture

The Sony® HDR-PJ200 offers 1920 x 1080 high definition resolution letting you record your memories in exceptional Full High Definition quality.

Built-in High-Contrast Projector

The high-contrast projector built-in to the LCD panel gives you the freedom to share your favorite memories virtually anywhere. Powerful enough to project up to a 100” diagonal screen, this small mobile theater packs a powerful punch.

Back-illuminated Exmor® R CMOS sensor for superb low-light video

Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor® R CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor® R CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

SteadyShot® image stabilization w/ Active Mode

SteadyShot® image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture

30x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action

Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 25x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality.

Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens

The professional-quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens is designed specifically for compact camcorders. Precision ground optics help maintain the sharpness and contrast of larger lenses, SteadyShot® image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake.

2.7” touchscreen Clear Photo LCD™ display (230K)

The 2.7” Clear Photo LCD™ touchscreen displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily -- even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene.

Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge

The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. 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.

Intelligent Auto (60 different scene combinations possible)

Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from nine distinct scene modes (60 different combinations possible): Portrait/Baby/Tripod/Backlight/Landscape /Spotlight/Twilight/Macro/Low light.

Tracking Focus follows selected subjects in/out of the frame

Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object, even if it leaves the frame and returns.

Event Browse groups photos/videos for you for easy reference

Event Browse conveniently groups your images and videos together for easier viewing. The date range that Event Browse groups your pictures and videos is easily adjusted to suit your needs. When used with the Highlight Playback feature, making and sharing a highlight reel from your event is easy and fun.

Highlight Playback creates movies with transitions for you

Why spend hours editing your movies when you can let your camcorder do it for you? 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.

Direct Copy to external HDD without PC1

Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive1 (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV2, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.
