Sony HDR-PJ710 Camcorder Review$1,299.00
The user interface on the HDR-PJ710V is excellent in most aspects. The auto controls are easy to use and there are a bunch of simple features you can play around with. Our only issue is that the dedicated auto mode isn't all that front-and-center; it should be easier to locate. The manual controls are just as extensive on the camcorder, although some pros may be miffed by the lack of a true manual mode that allows for aperture and shutter speed adjustment independent from one another. That minor gripe aside, the camcorder functions very well with its control dial and better-than-average touchscreen. Some may be put off by the camcorder's size, and we have to admit the bulk did feel uncomfortable at times, but when you have a camcorder loaded with so many controls it is difficult to make it much smaller than the PJ710V.
