7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

Most camcorders that came out more than two years ago do not have an image stabiliser. The HDR-PJ820 is no exception to this as it too does not have an image stabiliser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

The HDR-PJ820 does not have an HDMI port. Most of the other camcorders that came out around the same time as the HDR-PJ820 also do not have an HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

The HDR-PJ820 does not have an interchangeable lens, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other camcorders of this age and spec also do not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

The Sony HDR-PJ820 does not have a built-in display, unlike most of the other video cameras of a similar age and spec to the HDR-PJ820 which have a built-in display.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

Most comparable spec camcorders that have been around for around the same time as the HDR-PJ820 are not waterproof. The Sony HDR-PJ820 is no exception to this as it too is not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most camcorders that were released around the same time as the HDR-PJ820 do not have a night mode. The Sony HDR-PJ820 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in alternative camcorders which also have a night mode including the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price], or the HP F-500[plb_2962207_price] which is also higher rated.

If you want a video camera that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Sony HDR-TD20VE[plb_1505099_price] which is also higher rated.
