It’s the first camcorder to feature a removable pico projector that can display images from the camcorder at 854 x 480 resolution and with 15 lumens of brightness.
The projector can display images up to 60-inches in size and it’s priced at $550 from Ordro. Some specs include a 10-megapixel sensor, 3-inch LCD display, 10x optical zoom, SD/SDHC memory card support and it can record video at 1440 x 1080 @ 60fps.
