Sony HDR-PJ650 reviews:

The website reviews the Sony HDR-PJ650 camcorder and writes:

The most important addition is the new multi-control wheel on the front side, below and to the left of the lens. This feature was a good idea when it debuted at the high end of Sony’s camcorder lineup, though it’s the first time we’ve seen it on a $1,000-ish model.


Another Sony HDR-PJ650 review comes from website, that concludes:

The Sony HDR-PJ650VE is a very good camcorder that has a nice range of functions and features (GPS, 12x zoom, 5.1 sound, mic. and headphones sockets, built-in projector, SD recording more, etc.). The optical stabilisation system is particularly effective here, but picture quality isn’t quite on par with its main rival, the Panasonic X920, which also boasts Wi-Fi connectivity.
