The Audio Rec level adjustments are designed to give you as much control over the sound as possible.

The Multi-Interface Shoe is great for making use of the Wi-Fi facilities. You get an optional wireless module known as the ADP-WL1M which can effectively turn a mobile phone into a remote control. You can share all your video recordings in an instant. Shoot full HD videos for the web or television depending on your needs.

Those of you who have never been near a camcorder as a consequence of your tech-phobia will love the Sony HDR-PJ430V. Although a bit pricey, the specifications on this camcorder are worth it.
