Sony's most sophisticated image stabilization (Balanced Optical SteadyShot) uses a floating lens module.

One of the ways Sony shrinks the camcorder is by dropping the more high-end zoom rocker that's on the AX100 in favor of a more consumer-type zoom switch.

Sony has shrunk the number of projector-equipped camcorders it announced this year, down to two from three. The PJ670 replaces the PJ540 at the same $700 price.
