Pros: I received the camcorder without any problem. The box is unopened and in perfect condition. When it was delivered, the courier just left it outside the door. 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 ...
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: 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.
Summary: This is a great camcorder - works beautifully in low light conditions - but I wish it had a viewfinder. I like to have the option to hold the camera up to my eye & reduce glare issues in bright sunlight.
Summary: I haven't had the opportunity to use the Handcam as much as I had hoped, but so far I am pleased with it. The pictures taken have been clear and well focused, some taken just using one hand for stills. Good choice so far.
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.
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.
