    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    I’ve tried many video cameras over the years, and consider myself a loyal Canon user. I’ve had the XL1, XL2, XLH1 and a few of their handheld consumer cams like the HFS10, so I was curious to see how this Sony HDR-PJ710V would compare to my past experience. And I have to say, I’m quite impressed.

    Wide-Angle Lens

    I really LOVE Sony’s decision to include a wide-angle lens on this cam. I’ve bought an aftermarket wide angle for virtually every video camera I’ve ever owned, so to have that come standard this time out was a real nice touch. If we’re talking a Canon XL camera, then the expense and hassle of an additional wide angle is justified. But as far as the average Joe(sephine,) getting a wide angle is a big deal in both cost and convenience. Most video cameras try to strike a balance between a decent zoom lens, and a barely adequate focal width. The problem with that is, the majority of us are using personal cams like this for intimate events like birthdays and family gatherings; environments that beg for the wide angle lens that most cams are lacking. Plus, aftermarket wide angle lenses never fit right, because the cams themselves weren’t manufactured with the added lens in mind; even if you buy a name brand lens direct from the cam’s manufacturer. So the extra attachments tend to block things like flashes, built-in lights, buttons, and often mess with auto-focus and an array of other nifty features you got the cam for in the first place. Plus, I hate carrying added attachments. A pro working environment is different; I expect to have a bunch of added gear in those situations. But for personal shooting environments, less is more. What’s the point of buying a nifty little compact cam, if you have to lug around a bulky wide angle lens too? Doesn’t make sense. As far as zooming, the 10x optical and 17x digital zoom works brilliantly too.

    Floating Lens – Absolute Genius

    Sony has taken their SteadyShot to a whole new level here, and competitors better take notice. The Active Mode SteadyShot on this cam means that the _entire_optical_lens_block on this cam MOVES to give outstanding image stabilization. The best analogy I can draw, is that it’s similar to an accelerometer in a cell phone, in that, it senses the camera’s movements and physically moves the lens accordingly to give an optimal focal point, and reduce camera shake to almost nothing. You can actually see the lens move inside the housing as you tilt and adjust the camera — again… Uh-May-Zing!

    Manual Focus & Aperture

    Yes, this cam can do all that stuff automatically for you. But I have used many a camera where I had to fight with the auto-focus just to get it to focus in on the right thing. Believe me, having the option to manually focus your lens and adjust your own aperture settings is a huge deal, and not every cam offers the feature. Big bonus points for that one.

    Every Shooting Mode Imaginable

    Lets face it, sometimes cams like this come with so many bells and whistles, it can be daunting just to shoot some simple video. But the cool thing about this Sony is, you can put everything on auto-pilot and just shoot. Or, you can get into the nuts and bolts of it and really manipulate your shooting experience. 24p, zebra, peaking — you name it, this cam’s got it. So get as simple or as complicated as you like with this one.

    Tracking Focus

    Have you ever noticed that when you’re operating a camera, that you’re not totally a present spectator in what you’re filming? Your attention is focused on keeping the subject framed and following the action. And because of that, you spend more time filming an event, rather than enjoying it first hand. Well, tracking focus eliminates that circumstance, by honing in on any subject of your choice and automatically following it, and keeping it in focus, even if it momentarily leaves frame and comes back into view. To put it plainly, set the tracking focus to follow your child in a school play, then just sit back and enjoy the show, while the camera automatically tracks your child’s movements on stage and keeps them in focus for you. Coupled with the floating lens, and you almost don’t have to watch what you’re doing with regard to filming, and can keep your attention focused on what matters most… real life.

    Built-In Projector

    I’ll refrain from pulling out the Thesaurus to look up all the synonyms for Cool; suffice to say, the built in projector is fantastic. It works quite well in an array of lighting environments and is easy to focus and use.

    Decent Speakers

    The built-in speakers on this cam are actually quite good and sound much better than other cams I’ve tried. It gets loud enough to be heard well and doesn’t sound like a tin can. Even my pricey Canon XL cameras needed inline amplifiers just so the sound could be heard while using the…

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    Want the short review? Okay. THIS THING IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.

    Here’s the obligatory, longer and more detailed review. We’ll do bullet point format for this one.

    - It’s kind of weird seeing the lens bob around the way it does when you first take it out of the box. I swore that it was broken and was ready to scream bloody murder until I plugged it in to the AC cord and powered it up. The lens moves like that because it’s basically its own steadicam. It locks into place when it turns on but it seems to be on a gyroscope of sorts. Handheld panning shots are now incredibly smooth.

    - Just about everything you need comes in the box

    - There’s an attached USB cable that comes out from the camera and rests in the hand strap. Never seen this before in other cameras and it’s a wonder as to why if this is indeed the case, why this wasn’t done sooner. Admittedly, it’s a very short cord (maybe 2″) but the box comes packed with a USB extension, so don’t worry about your camera getting uncomfortably close to your computer if you don’t want it to.

    - Connected to my Mac through iMovie with absolutely no hitches (sigh of relief)

    - Video looks GORGEOUS. Guaranteed, this camera has the settings you need to get what you shoot exactly how you want it to look

    - 24.1 MP still photo capability

    - Manual focus knob up at the front. If you’ve got the included lens hood attached, the lens hood kind of gets in the way of comfortable operation but the fact that this camcorder has a manual focus knob included is a very, very good thing

    - Speaking of focus, you can use the viewfinder to select targets to keep focus on

    - Viewfinder is a touch screen and very intuitive

    - The camera as a whole is very intuitive in fact. There was very little I had to go back to the manual for, once I had a decent amount of time fiddling around with it

    - The viewfinder has a projector on it. This seriously boggles my mind. Naturally, it doesn’t look so great in a bright room but project your footage against the wall in a nice dark or dim room and the results will astound you.

    - A built in, Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound microphone. You can see the mic levels on the viewfinder in a small, unobtrusive little icon for each channel. Amazing.

    - Takes SDHC cards on top of the already included 32gb’s of internal memory

    - Nightshot and built in LED flash/light for those low light shooting situations

    - Also has GPS geotagging capability. Didn’t really mess with that too much as I already feel like everyone already knows where I am as it is

    BOTTOM LINE: This camera is really, really impressive. Yeah, it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of a professional grade movie camera but I’m willing to bet that in the right hands, someone will make a great looking picture with this thing. The picture is beautiful, the sound is crisp, it’s easy to operate… I can’t say anything bad about this camera because I’ll be nitpicking, which I will leave to the super tech savvy reviewers. Take it from me, this camera does not disappoint.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    I’m not going to lie, since the late 90′s, I’ve been a pretty solid Canon customer. Sony gear always seemed just a little too proprietary (I’m talking to you, MemoryStick) and just a little overpriced. But the HDRPJ710V has definitely changed my perceptions.

    I’ve been using a Canon Vixia HFS10 for the past couple years, so I’m accustomed to a “prosumer” camcorder. And while the HFS10 is an incredible camera in its own right, I can’t believe how drastic the improvements in the newer Sony camera are. Facial recognition is almost instant, and very intelligent. Transitioning from various sources of ambient light is silky smooth, and the picture quality is well maintained through very bright light, as well as low-light.

    I was especially surprised by how good the night vision / pervert function is. Resolution is excellent if you have even the slightest bit of light. Similarly, I wasn’t too hopeful about the Dolby Digital recording capabilities, but the end product is astoundingly professional.

    The Zeiss lens is suspended in a float, so it takes a fair amount of trembling to see a shaky picture, which is a good thing… largely because the handstrap is unforgiving in its smallness. Though on the upside, Sony chose to integrate a USB cable in to the handstrap. And if you’re the type to add filters, you can use the native 52mm screwthreads, or the included stepdown to 37mm. Also included: a very nice lens shade, remote, HDMI, and AV cables.

    So, awesome image quality, very good build quality. My favorite thing, though, is that you can directly access your files through USB. Plug it in, grab your files, and go. No need to connect to AC power, and no need to convert on the fly. I can’t believe it’s taken this long for a higher-end camera to be able to do this!

    Downsides? Well… yeah.

    Battery life is less than stellar. At just over two hours’ use, you’re going to want to invest in a spare battery or two if you’re planning on doing the “record and project” thing. As for projection… you have to understand that Sony isn’t bundling an expensive projector in to an expensive camera. It’s cute, and kids will definitely think it’s cool. But the image quality suffers outside of ideal conditions, though the speakers are surprisingly loud and clear. Similarly, the included GPS mapping feature is functional, albeit strange. Unless you’re mapping out samples of plants you’re taking in the rain forest, I don’t really see many people using the GPS function often.

    Sony includes the most basic video editing software I think I’ve seen. Even Flip cameras came with more robust software. While this is probably geared toward someone who has a flavor of Final Cut or Adobe Premiere, I was kind of disappointed to see that there wasn’t a Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11 Production Suite license included in a camera on this tier.

    All things being equal, this is almost certainly the best camcorder I’ve used, and it only takes a couple of minutes to see how reasonable Sony is in commanding the price.
