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!

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.
