The HDR-PJ820 has a built-in projector, unlike most of the other camcorders that were released more than two years ago which do not have a built-in projector.

There are a number of alternative video cameras which also have an image stabilizer which you might want to consider including the Sony FDR-AX33[plb_2699652_price]; or the Sony HDR-PJ420E[plb_1583936_price].

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with an HDMI and we think the Sony FDR-AX33[plb_2699652_price]; or the Sony HDR-PJ420E[plb_1583936_price] are also worth considering.
