The Sony HDR-PJ330 has a built-in projector, unlike most of the other video cameras that were launched around the same time as the HDR-PJ330 which do not have a built-in projector.

Alternative video cameras with a built-in projector currently available which you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Aiptek ProjectorCam C25.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have a built-in projector to this video camera and we think the Sony HDR-PJ240 is also worth considering.
