Sony's New HD Camcorders Featuring Built-in Projector Introduced at the CES

The 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) showed off a variety of fascinating aspects of technology that we can hopefully soon look forward to enjoying. One of the great devices that was introduced at the show was Sony’s newest camcorder technology. Now, the 3D camcorder that Sony introduced was definitely very cool, but according to Consumer Reports’ associate electronics editor Terry Sullivan, this newest piece of technology might be even cooler.

The line of camcorders that Sony introduced at the CES consisted of HD camcorders that come complete with a built-in projector. Sony says that the line will be known as the PJ series. There will be three different models known as the HDR-PJ50V, the HDR-PJ30V, and the HDR-PJ10.

I’m honestly very impressed with this series of camcorders that Sony will be releasing. The devices will all be able to project video and images up to 60 inches in size when standing 18 feet away. Each of the camcorders in the series will have stereo speakers built into them with S-Master digital amplifier and Clear Phase technologies.

They also will all feature very large hard drives, 1080/60p video recording, built-in GPS, Exmor-R image sensors, built-in USB, great optics, and other great features. Prices also aren’t too bad considering all the fantastic features that these camcorders offer. Sony is expected to release two of their camcorders from the PJ line in March with the third device available sometime in April. Here’s the breakdown of each model.
