For the price, it can be concluded that a little better could have done-slightly sharper video, improved low-light performance and a less cumbersome interface top the list-but Sony Handycam HDR-XR260 still fares quite well against its competitors!

Sony HDR-XR260VE

 

Great video straight up. No mucking around with white balance etc. Works extremely well with a Sony video tripod which allows control from the tripod handle. Just used for one of my son's wedding and the results were excellent. I have owned Sony,...

Not set on highest or even second highest video setting straight out of the box.

Sony HDR-XR260VE

 

Small, light, very good image quality.

Hand strap too small, and no saftey strap supplied or available from Sony. Zoom with top button takes getting used to, and the touch screen zoom, you can hit the stop by mistake and not notice till too late !. Not that easy/quick to delete what you...
