1 Reason For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Camcorders

We calculated the average ratings for all Sony camcorders and also specifically for Sony video cameras and found that in both cases Sony had good ratings compared to other brands.

10 Reasons Against

Not Full HD

The Sony HDR-TD20 is not Full HD. Most of the other video cameras that were launched around the same time as the HDR-TD20 are also not Full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Sony HDR-TD20 does not have an image stabiliser, although keep in mind that most of the other camcorders that are a comparable age to the HDR-TD20 also do not have an image stabiliser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

Most video cameras of this age and type do not have an HDMI port. The HDR-TD20 is no exception to this as it too does not have an HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The smallest optical zoom of camcorders that are a similar age to the HDR-TD20 is 1x and the biggest is 65x. At only 10 times zoom factor, the HDR-TD20 has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec video cameras that are a similar age to the HDR-TD20.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 10x (optical) video cameras currently available including the Sony HDR-CX730 (£315.00) which has better reviews.

Camcorders with a bigger optical zoom that might also be worth considering include the Sony PMW-200 (£2,999.00) (14x).

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most video cameras of a similar age and spec to the HDR-TD20 do not have an interchangeable lens. The Sony HDR-TD20 is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

The HDR-TD20 does not have a built-in display, unlike most of the other camcorders of this type and age which have a built-in display.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

Like most of the other video cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the HDR-TD20, the HDR-TD20 is not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Sony HDR-TD20 does not have a night mode. Most of the other similar spec camcorders that are a comparable age to the HDR-TD20 also do not have a night mode.

Other video cameras which also have a night mode that you might want to consider include the Transcend DrivePro 200 (£77.86), or the HP F-500 (£86.26).

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other comparable spec video cameras that are a similar age to the HDR-TD20, the Sony HDR-TD20 is not 3D compatible.

Video cameras which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Sony HDR-TD20VE (£999.00) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

The HDR-TD20 does not have a built-in projector. Most of the other camcorders of this age and type also do not have a built-in projector.

We think you might also be interested in other camcorders which also have a built-in projector including the Sony HDR-PJ420 (£499.99).
