Sony HDR-PJ540
Preview of the Sony HDR-PJ540.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 11/24/2014

We've really enjoyed the Sony PJ models in the past, and they've made a few minor updates for their 2014 models. The PJ540 features a 1/5.8" sensor, 30x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, wi-fi and a handful of other features. The PJ models all feature a built-in projector, this one is 25 lumens and can project footage up to 100" on a screen or any blank surface (if the projector doesn't interest you, check out Sony's CX line). The initial specs look good, but beware that early user reviews have noted poor sound quality and low light performance.
