There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Product details

The Sony Handycam PJ810 Full HD Camcorder in black features a built-in projector so you can directly enjoy all the great movies you've shot.

Put on a show direct from your camcorder

Once you've shot your footage, you'll be able to use the Handycam PJ810 to give it that big screen treatment thanks to its built in projector, which is bright up to 50 lumens.

This great facility can throw a picture up to 500 cm (200”) onto any surface to render every detail of your movies in larger-than-life detail. The projector's wide brightness range permits vividly clear viewing even in direct sunlight.

Watch any home movie by simply connecting a smartphone or tablet via HDMI, and expand your home entertainment options.

Better home videography

The Sony Handycam PJ810 Full HD Camcorder is fitted with an improved BIONZ X image processor that delivers fast and powerful performance for greatly reduced noise levels.

Coupled with the ultra-responsive Exmor R CMOS sensor, this dynamic imaging engine works to authentically recreate every aspect of the scene you've shot in precise yet naturalistic detail.

The camcorder is fitted with a 26.7 mm wide-angle G lens that really lets you get more into each frame. An impressively wide maximum aperture of f/1.9 to f/3.4 really allows you to capture as much light as possible, whilst also achieving compelling shallow focus effects.

Powerful zoom and smooth stability

Get closer to your subjects with 12x optical and 24x Clear Image Zoom, which help you cover distances between you and discreet or inaccessible objects.

The Sony PJ810 also employs balanced Optical SteadyShot technology for superb image stabilisation. It eliminates a lot of the blur caused by hand shaking while shooting videos, enabling you to move, pan and zoom without irregular shakes and jumps. In fact, the facility allows the camcorder to compensate for 13 times more camera shake than ordinary stabilisation.

Helping the audio in your videos match the great image quality, My Voice Cancelling is able to quieten your voice behind the camera whilst maintaining subject volume levels. Your home videos will have a much more professional sheen to them with such forward-thinking features.

Wireless and fancy-free

You'll love the fact that the PJ810 Handycam doesn't need any cables or connections to share files. Use its proprietary NFC facility to connect with WiFi, allowing you to instantly share photos and videos.

The device also offers Dual Video Recording which captures footage in two formats simultaneously. AVHCD gives you high-quality results, while MP4 is a compressed format that's great for sharing online.

With all these great features plus a range of scene modes and other shooting features, the black Sony Handycam PJ810 Full HD Camcorder is a powerful personal video tool.
