Summary: I hated this thing when I first got it due to audio problems. Then I discovered it was the video editing software that was wrecking my audio sound. Upgraded to Adobe Premier and all was right with the world. Not the greatest in low light. Thought for the money I would get better results.
Great camera….just know what format it records in.

Summary: Love most features about this camera. Only frustration is that it records in .mts and in order for me to use the clips, I have to convert the files. I feel like I am losing some of the quality of the picture in doing so. It's another step that I don't always have time for.
Summary: This is a great camera for home use. Light, great quality reproduction. Really a very good camera. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that files are saved in Sony's proprietary format, so if you are shooting and send it to someone to be edited, you will have to convert the files to MP4.
Summary: SONY HANDYCAM HDR-XR260V THIS IS MY SECOND CAMCORDER OF SONY, AND I AM VERY PLEASANT ABOUT IT. THEIR IMAGE QUALITY IN FULLHD ( AT 1080P ) IS SUPERB, AND THE BEST OF ALL, THE PRICE IS IN THE MID RANGE CONSUMER VIDEOCAMS.

It is a good thing it was still there when I checked it by midnight. Overall, I'm happy with my camcorder. It takes great videos and still ...

Summary: The capabilities of this camcorder have greatly exceeded my expectations.........I especially like its image stability in the out of doors. I would rate it higher but for the fact that I haven't had it long enough to use a major portion of its options........
Summary: It does what is required. Although it has a weird function with the SSD memory. If you take it out of the camera and put it onto your computer, it still saves some of it onto the card. You have to be very thorough in how you clean left over files from this thing.
Excellent Camera but needs a few more features to be 5 star

Summary: I bought this camera to use on a low budget video production project, and so far I'm very pleased with it's video quality and recording ability. The 160gb hard drive is excellent and so far I haven't experienced any loss of data.
