1 Reason For

Sony Camcorders Have Good Reviews

Video cameras produced by Sony have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all camcorders (not just video cameras) and found that Sony also has good reviews across its entire range.

10 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Expert review website parentesis.com scored this video camera 60%. Camcorder experts aren't convinced by this Sony video camera.

Not Full HD

Like most of the other similar spec video cameras that were released more than two years ago, the HDR-PJ230 is not Full HD.

Video cameras which are Full HD that might also be worth looking at include the PXW-FS7K (£8,199.00), or the PMW-150 both from Sony or the Polaroid ID975HD which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

Like most of the other similar spec camcorders that are a comparable age to the HDR-PJ230, the HDR-PJ230 does not have an image stabiliser.

There are a number of other video cameras which also have an image stabiliser which you might want to look at including the Thinkware TW-X500, the JVC GY-HM150, or the Polaroid iD1880 (£39.99).

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

Like most of the other video cameras that were launched around the same time as the HDR-PJ230, the HDR-PJ230 does not have an HDMI port.

Other video cameras which also have an HDMI port that you might want to look at include the PXW-FS7K (£8,199.00), or the PMW-300 both from Sony or the ION Air Pro Lite ActION which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

The HDR-PJ230 does not have an interchangeable lens, although keep in mind that most of the other video cameras that have been available for around the same time as the HDR-PJ230 also do not have an interchangeable lens.

There are a number of alternative video cameras which also have an interchangeable lens that you might want to consider including the PMWEX3, the HXR-NX30, or the PMW100 (£96.35) all from Sony.

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

Most of the other video cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the HDR-PJ230 have a built-in display, however the Sony HDR-PJ230 does not have a built-in display.

We compared all the other camcorders which also have a built-in display to this camcorder and we think the PXW-FS7K (£8,199.00), or the PMW-150 both from Sony or the HTC RE Digital Camera is also worth considering.

Not Waterproof

Like most of the other video cameras that have been on the market for more than two years, the HDR-PJ230 is not waterproof.

If you are looking for a camcorder that is waterproof then you might also want to consider the Air Pro Lite ActION, or the The Game ActION both from ION or the HTC RE Digital Camera which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other camcorders of a comparable type and age to the HDR-PJ230, the Sony HDR-PJ230 does not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in alternative camcorders which also have a night mode including the F-500G, or the F-500 (£86.26) both from HP or the Transcend DrivePro 200 (£77.86) which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

The HDR-PJ230 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other video cameras that were launched around the same time as the HDR-PJ230 are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a video camera that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Sony HDR-TD20VE (£999.00) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

Most camcorders of a comparable type and age to the HDR-PJ230 do not have a built-in projector. The HDR-PJ230 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in projector.

It is worth considering other video cameras which also have a built-in projector including the HDR-PJ820 (£659.99), or the HDR-PJ420 (£499.99) both from Sony which is also higher rated.
