Best Quality Camcorder Projector

If you're looking for a very high quality camcorder with a built-in projector then the Sony HDR-PJ760V High Definition Handycam 24.1 MP Camcorder is the model to consider. 

This isn't a gimmicky camcorder/projector combo. It's a version of Sony's HDR-CX760V Camcorder with a built-in projector. 

This camera has 1920x1080 full HD 60p/24p video recording and takes 24.1 megapixel still images. For a little extra you get a projector so you can show those videos and films immediately. 

What can you use it for? It's good for mobile businesses where you want to show a client a video that you have taken immediately.

It's also good for serious amateur photographers to be able to show off their work to family and friends straight away. Whether you're on vacation or at a family occasion it's great fun to be able to show videos straight away.

There's also a GPS. 5.1 Surround Sound. The camera is PC and Mac Compatible.  

There are built-in stereo speakers for video playback, so you'll be able to listen to the audio when you project your videos.

Only $399.00

A lower cost but still high spec option for a camcorder with a built-in projector is this older Sony model. 

The Sony HDR-PJ10 High Definition Handycam Camcorder with Built-in Projector gets excellent reviews as a Camcorder. It doesn't have all the fancy features of the newer model, but is still a quality video recorder with the ability to project photos and videos. 

Mid-range Camcorder with Projector

If you don't need to high quality video and photos of the Sony Camcorder/Projectors then consider the 3M CP45R (Red and White) Generation II Projector Camcorder with HD Recording. The 3M CP45R is the model with the Black and White case. 

This is a great camcorder and projector for casual use. The video camera can take HD video and still photos. It's a nicely designed Camcorder that you'll be pleased to show off. 

But of course the cool feature is the projector. The projector has a brightness of 20 lumens (not particularly bright) and will project an image of up to 65". The larger the image the less bright it will be. Of course a dark room helps though you can use the projector in daylight. 

This is a fun gadget for capturing and sharing family events. It's also good for recording sports training  or any situation where you want to capture and immediately play back a video.

Benq DV S11 Video

Low Cost Camcorder with Projector

The Benq DV S11 PICO Projector / HD Video Camcorder / 5.0 MP Digital Camera is also worth highlighting. 

This camcorder/projector has been around for a couple of years now and therefore isn't the very latest technology, but this is reflected in the price. 

This is an HD Camcorder with a 3.5" touchscreen and built-in projector. Worth considering if your budget is tight and you're okay with basic features. 

More Pocket Projectors

There are lots of different pico pocket projectors available. One of the key considerations is brightness. How many lumens do you need in a mini projector?
The FAVI A3 and W3 Wifi Pico Projectors are new for 2012. They have an operating system and are like a small PC that uses a projector instead of a screen.
