 Cons
Conclusion Balanced Optical SteadyShot paired with current video technology at the height of the time could be the Sony HDR-PJ780 quickly becomes the darling ambitious videographers.Sony would have unlocked a second time, the full manual control and the image characteristics of the camera.Conversely, those who anyway only in automatic mode at the PJ780 films should have a lot of fun.One can in many cases save a tripod and maybe there are here and there even a suitable use for the built-in projector.In manual operation is possible by Canon assignable buttons all competitors in this price range behind: Three useful assignable Knobs including Drehraedchen and the lens ring ambitious filmmakers give a solid tool in hand.A sharper viewfinder there would have fit well into the concept.Any other factors features of the camera area matter of personal preferences.For example, the dual SD slot can perhaps be critical for some users, it is marginally better picture quality contrast with the competition.The absence of 50/60p and adherence to the interlaced format affects some 7 years after the disposal of Bildroehren for a peak in 2013 camcorder somewhat anachronistic. Conclusion
