This is a major upgrade from its peers’ 16 and 32GB flash storage options. Otherwise, the HDR-PJ50V maintains the core feature among all three—a flip-out LCD panel with a built-in projector that can display video content at up to 60”. Plus it also offers full HD AV capture in addition to a plethora of connectivity options like HDMI, USB, SD/SDHC, and Memory Stick Pro.
