9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Sony HDR-PJ810E does not have an image stabilizer. Most of the other camcorders that have been on the market for a comparable time to the HDR-PJ810E also do not have an image stabilizer.

We think you might also be interested in other video cameras which also have an image stabilizer including the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price], the JVC GY-HM150[plb_1772453_price], or the HTC RE Digital Camera[plb_2962211_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an HDMI

Most video cameras of a similar age and type to the HDR-PJ810E do not have an HDMI. The HDR-PJ810E is no exception to this as it too does not have an HDMI.

We think you might also be interested in other video cameras which also have an HDMI including the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price], the Panasonic AG-HPX600[plb_1974580_price], or the ION Air Pro 3 WiFi ActION[plb_2962229_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The HDR-PJ810E is not Full HD. Most of the other camcorders that were released around the same time as the HDR-PJ810E are also not Full HD.

Video cameras which are Full HD that might be worth looking at include the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price], the GoPro Hero 3+[plb_2666023_price], or the ION Air Pro 3 WiFi ActION[plb_2962229_price].

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Like most of the other camcorders that were launched around the same time as the HDR-PJ810E, the Sony HDR-PJ810E does not have an interchangeable lens.

It is worth also looking at other video cameras which also have an interchangeable lens including the PMWEX3[pl_1584436_price], the HXR-NX30[pl_1584491_price], or the PMW100[pl_1584492_price] all from Sony which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

The HDR-PJ810E does not have a built-in display, unlike most of the other camcorders of a comparable spec and age to the HDR-PJ810E which have a built-in display.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have a built-in display to this camcorder and we think the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price], the Canon ZR50MC[plb_2109828_price], or the Panasonic HC-V270EB[plb_2962226_price] is also worth considering.

Not Waterproof

Like most of the other camcorders of this type and age, the HDR-PJ810E is not waterproof.

If you want a camcorder that is waterproof then you might want to consider the Air Pro Lite ActION[pl_2962206_price], or the Air Pro 3 WiFi ActION[pl_2962229_price] both from ION or the HTC RE Digital Camera[plb_2962211_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D

Most video cameras of a similar age and type to the HDR-PJ810E are not 3D. The Sony HDR-PJ810E is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

Video cameras which are 3D that might also be worth considering include the Sony HDR-TD20VE[plb_1505099_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The HDR-PJ810E does not have a night mode, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other video cameras of this age and type also do not have a night mode.

It is worth also looking at other video cameras which also have a night mode including the F-500[pl_2962207_price], or the F-500G[pl_2962220_price] both from HP or the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

Most camcorders that came out around the same time as the HDR-PJ810E do not have a built-in projector. The HDR-PJ810E is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in projector.

We compared this camcorder to all the other camcorders with a built-in projector and we think the HDR-PJ420E[pl_1583936_price], or the HDR-PJ820[pl_2109593_price] both from Sony is also worth considering.
