Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

Most video cameras that have been around for more than two years do not have an image stabiliser. The Sony HDR-PJ270 is no exception to this as it too does not have an image stabiliser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

The HDR-PJ270 does not have an HDMI port, although this is within the context that most of the other video cameras of this type and age also do not have an HDMI port.

Chart Edit

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 also has a higher rating.
