Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
Shoot in Full HD 60p and enjoy your footage anywhere with Sony 16GB HDR-PJ380 60p HD Handycam Camcorder with Projector. Featuring a handy built-in projector, you can project your footage onto any wall or flat surface for instant entertainment.

Plus, get great close-ups with 30x zoom, and keep your video smooth and shake-free with Optical SteadyShot image stabilization.
Precious moments become even more special the second time around when captured in exquisitely rich 1920 x 1080/60p Full HD video. Notice the perfect photo op while recording? You can shoot 8.9MP still images and video at the same time so you won't miss an ounce of the action.

This is really cool. Featuring a high-contrast 13 lumen projector built into the LCD panel, you can transform your camcorder into a mobile movie theater by projecting onto a wall or virtually any flat surface. It's great for sharing footage on the fly, but since it works with HDMI-compatible smartphones, laptops and tablets, you can also project YouTube videos, photos, full-length films and more. It's tons of fun for family movie night, and super convenient for professionals who want to share presentations on the spot.
Sometimes it's difficult to move closer to faraway subjects to nail the shot. That's where powerful zoom enters the equation. Featuring Extended Zoom digital technology that works in conjunction with 30x optical zoom, you can get 55x closer to the action, all while maintaining HD image quality. Your video will be crisp and clear, even as you pan in for extreme close-ups.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video—from wide angle, all the way to full telephoto shooting. Innovative 3-way shake-canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture. It's perfect for shooting footage while walking, chasing after the kids, from a moving vehicle or any other less-than-steady scenario.
When it comes to HD quality and file size, you've got options. Choose between shooting in the AVCHDor MP4 formats depending on how you plan to use and share the footage. AVCHD provides premium video quality that looks amazing when played back on large screen HDTVs. MP4 is a smaller file size perfect for quick, easy uploads to sites like Facebookand YouTube or storing in the cloud. The best part? It's all HD, and it all looks incredible.
Your subjects will stay crisp, clear and blur-free thanks to advanced focusing technology. Working as an extension of Face Detection technology, Tracking Focus allows you to select the subject you'd like to keep in focus simply by touching the LCD. Even if the object leaves the frame then comes back in again, the camcorder will maintain a tack-sharp focus as your subject moves in and out of view.
