**New for 2015** The HDR-PJ670 is Sony’s mid-range projector HD camcorder with a 32GB flash drive and 30x optical zoom for 2015. SmartReview previewed this model at CES 2015 in Las Vegas. This model includes the groundbreaking image stabilization technology, Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ (which claims to be 13x better than regular Steadyshot) delivers smoother video in low light, and long telephoto shots. This feature was demonstrated to us (and it does work extremely well). Sony told us that the new steady shot runs the entire length of the optical system, from the lens to the imager. This is like having a Steadicam built-in to the camera. This model has a projector (located on the outside of the LCD door)that will allow you to project your videos on a wall up to a 200-inch picture (This requires a dark room to view). The Projector-In HDMI Input will allow you to plug in your laptop, tablet or smartphone and project content and movies directly from the camcorder’s projector.

Smart-Review Commentary: For 2015, Sony’s HDR-PJ670 is fully loaded with features that most camcorder users will appreciate. The camcorder is equipped with a Sony G lens that has an F1.8 aperature which will help in low light situations and 30x optical zoom. The premium Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization will help eliminate image blur that can occur in low light and camera shake. In addition, you get full hd, 60p, 60i, and 24p framerates to choose from. The PJ670 has many inputs and outputs, including external microphone, headphone, and HDMI input (for projector) and output.

The LCD door has a Projector Built-in which you can project your video on walls or other flat surfaces, up to a 200-inch size. We were very impressed with this feature. It allows you to plug in your tablet or smartphone to project content from. The Balanced Optical Steadyshot feature is extremely effective (see video). The HDR-PJ670 is a Smart-Review top pick for 2015.
