1 Reason For

Sony Has Good Camcorder Reviews

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

Not Full HD

The HDR-TD20 is not Full HD. Most of the other camcorders that have been around for more than two years are also not Full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The HDR-TD20 does not have an image stabiliser, although keep in mind that most of the other camcorders that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have an image stabiliser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

The Sony HDR-TD20 does not have an HDMI port, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other video cameras of a similar age and type to the HDR-TD20 also do not have an HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The Sony HDR-TD20 has a quite small optical zoom (only 10 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other video cameras of a similar type and age to the HDR-TD20. The average optical zoom of camcorders that have been around for around the same time as the HDR-TD20 is 23x, and the optical zooms range from 1x to 65x.

Other 10x (optical) camcorders currently available that you might want to consider include the Sony HDR-CX730 which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a camcorder with a bigger optical zoom then you might also want to look at the Sony PMW-200 (14x).

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

The Sony HDR-TD20 does not have an interchangeable lens, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec video cameras that have been around for more than two years also do not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

The HDR-TD20 does not have a built-in display, unlike most of the other camcorders that have been available for around the same time as the HDR-TD20 which have a built-in display.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

The HDR-TD20 is not waterproof. Most of the other camcorders that have been on the market for a comparable time to the HDR-TD20 are also not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other video cameras of a similar spec and age to the HDR-TD20, the HDR-TD20 does not have a night mode.

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

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

The HDR-TD20 does not have a built-in projector, although it is worth noting that most of the other camcorders of a similar spec and age to the HDR-TD20 also do not have a built-in projector.

We compared this camcorder to all the other camcorders with a built-in projector and we think the Sony HDR-PJ420 is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

Most camcorders that have been available for more than two years are not 3D compatible. The Sony HDR-TD20 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a video camera that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Sony HDR-TD20VE.
