1 Reason For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Camcorders

We calculated the average reviews for all Sony camcorders and also specifically for Sony camcorders and found that in both cases Sony had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

10 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This camcorder received an expert rating of 60 out of 100 from parentesis.com. It seems that experts really don't rate this video camera very highly.

Not Full HD

The HDR-PJ230 is not Full HD. Most of the other video cameras that have been available for more than two years are also not Full HD.

If you would prefer a video camera that is Full HD then you might want to look at the PXW-FS7K, or the HDR-PJ820 both from Sony which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The HDR-PJ230 does not have an image stabiliser, although it is worth noting that most of the other camcorders of a comparable age and type to the HDR-PJ230 also do not have an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other camcorders which also have an image stabiliser to this video camera and we think the Sony PMW-150, or the JVC GY-HM150 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

Like most of the other camcorders that are a similar age to the HDR-PJ230, the Sony HDR-PJ230 does not have an HDMI port.

There are a number of other camcorders which also have an HDMI port that you might also want to look at including the Sony PXW-FS7K, the Panasonic AG-HPX600 ($1,000.00), or the ION Air Pro Lite ActION which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

The HDR-PJ230 does not have an interchangeable lens, although it is worth noting that most of the other camcorders that have been available for a comparable time to the HDR-PJ230 also do not have an interchangeable lens.

Other camcorders which also have an interchangeable lens that you might want to look at include the PMWEX3, the HXR-NX30 ($79.95), or the PMW100 all from Sony.

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

The HDR-PJ230 does not have a built-in display. Most of the other camcorders of this age and spec do have a built-in display.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with a built-in display and we think the PXW-FS7K, or the PMW-150 both from Sony or the Polaroid ID910HD is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

The HDR-PJ230 is not waterproof, although keep in mind that most of the other camcorders that have been available for a similar time to the HDR-PJ230 are also not waterproof.

If you are looking for a camcorder that is waterproof then you might also want to consider the Air Pro Lite ActION, or the The Game ActION ($186.89) both from ION or the HTC RE Digital Camera ($201.90) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other video cameras that have been available for a similar time to the HDR-PJ230, the HDR-PJ230 does not have a night mode.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have a night mode to this video camera and we think the F-500G, or the F-500 both from HP or the Transcend DrivePro 200 ($99.95) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

The HDR-PJ230 does not have a built-in projector, although it is worth noting that most of the other video cameras of a comparable spec and age to the HDR-PJ230 also do not have a built-in projector.

Other camcorders which also have a built-in projector that you might also want to look at include the HDR-PJ820, or the HDR-PJ420 both from Sony which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

The Sony HDR-PJ230 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other video cameras that have been around for a comparable time to the HDR-PJ230 are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a video camera that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Sony HDR-TD20VE which is also higher rated.
