Sony HDR-PJ675 Overview
The Sony HDR-PJ675 Full HD Handycam Camcorder with 32GB Internal Memory and Built-In Projector is a PAL camcorder that features a wide-angle Sony G 30x optical zoom lens and Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with 5-Axis Intelligent Active mode to help you capture smooth and stable footage throughout the zoom range, even while on the move. This PAL camera is compatible with European broadcast systems only, and is not compatible with the NTSC system. Intuitive, grab-and-go operation is further benefited thanks to a Fast Intelligent AF system that works to help keep your subjects in sharp focus. The camcorder’s Exmor R CMOS sensor and Bionz X processor combine to support 1080p video up to 50 fps and still images up to 9.2MP, with files recorded to either microSD memory cards or the internal 32GB of flash memory. Advanced features include a 5.1 channel built-in zoom microphone, interval photo capture for creating time-lapse videos, and Wi-Fi/NFC connectivity for wireless control and file sharing.
Allows you to view your footage on “the big screen” without having to tote around a large monitor to view your footage on. This is great for non-critical viewing, when you are sharing your video with a group of people.
1080p Video Recording and 9.2MP Stills
The Exmor R CMOS image sensor combines with the Bionz X processor to support 1080p video up to 50 fps and 9.2MP still photos.
Sony G with 30x Optical Zoom
The HDR-PJ675 comes equipped with a Sony G zoom lens that features a wide 35mm-equivalent focal length of 26.8mm (in movie mode) to fit more into your shots and a 30x optical zoom range. To get you closer to the action, the zoom range can be extended to 60x using Clear Image Zoom.
Balanced Optical SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode
Sony’s Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization suppresses camera shake to produce more stable looking footage throughout the camcorder’s zoom range, even under unsteady conditions. 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensates for vibration in five different directions, so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while running.
Fast Intelligent AF
Fast Intelligent AF achieves quick and accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimizing lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerating lens drive.
Versatile Shooting with XAVC S, AVCHD, and MP4 Codecs
The HDR-PJ675 records 4K and HD movies in the XAVC S format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Additionally, you can chose to record HD in AVCHD (ideal for HDTV and Blu-ray disc burning) or MP4 (ideal for sharing over the internet).
Dual Video Recording
Record two movies at the same time – one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. This gives you a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.
Capture still images continuously over an extensive period of time at a selected constant interval from each shot to the next, edit the entire sequence of still images in post-production, and enjoy playback of that series of images as a time-lapse movie.
5.1 Channel On-Board Audio Capture
Record clear sound that accurately captures the atmosphere of the scene, and enjoy surround sound playback on your home theater system. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel’s levels.
Note: 5.1 channel audio is only available when recording in AVCHD.
Simple Connectivity to Smartphones via Wi-Fi/NFC
Built-in Wi-Fi/NFC support enables easy connectivity with smartphones for one-touch sharing and one-touch remote control. NFC (near field communication) provides “touch connection” convenience when transferring images to Android smartphones and tablets. You simply touch your NFC-compatible device to the camcorder to establish a connection.
Share the moment as it happens via Ustream live streaming. Now your circle of friends and family can share the excitement in real time by simply logging in to UStream from anywhere. You can also link your favorite social accounts to notify your friends when you start streaming video.
Add a different point of view by including other camera angles to your movies. Connect compatible Sony cameras via Wi-Fi and use the camcorder’s LCD to preview what the other cameras are seeing and simultaneously start recording on all synced cameras. After recording, you can use the PlayMemories Home software (available as a free download on Sony’s website) to easily edit and create multi-view movies.
Highlight Movie Maker
Highlight Movie Maker produces a short highlight movie clip to share and enjoy instantly. Using an advanced algorithm based on the motion gyro, Highlight Movie Maker automatically selects the best scenes from your videos and creates a MP4 highlight reel of your recorded action.
Note: Highlight Move Maker is only available in AVCHD.
This feature automatically determines the type of scene being shot and optimizes a combination of settings from three groups (Face, Scene, Camera shake). It provides optimal results for up to 180 scene types, even at night and in backlit scenes. Selected settings are displayed as icons on the LCD screen for easy reference.
Add up to seven creative effects (Partial Color, Retro Photo, Soft High-key, High Contrast Mono, Toy Camera, Pop Color, Posterization) without troublesome editing on a computer.
Motion Shot Video
Motion Shot Video plays a sequence of superimposed images that trace recorded action in split-second intervals for you to analyze in detail. During playback, you can adjust the interval, or pause to capture and share a still image.
