Sony HDR-PJ260v review extracts from Customer
4 out of 5 stars I’m pretty pleased with the quality and the recording time as it’s easy to download the video files quickly. I specifically purchased this one because it had a newer 16:9 CCD in it and it could record in 60P.By That guy in the Village “bonk1″ (Columbus, OH United States) on Feb 27th 2012.Read FULL Sony HDR-PJ260V Review

Sony HDR-PJ260v review update by P. McWhorter Kitale, Kenya 7/14/2012
I am completely blown away by this Sony HDR-PJ260v…… a wonderful set of still pictures which it had taken on its own (when it saw a smile)…..I was able to make videos of children who had never even seen their own faces. I could take them to a dark area, and show them the video of their song or dance….FULL HDR-PJ260v review

Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object, even if it leaves the frame and returns.

Expanded Recording/Monitoring with Mic/Headphone Jack
Features dedicated mic and headphone inputs for expanded audio recording options and convenient monitoring of audio with headphones (external microphones and headphones sold separately).

Built-in USB Cable for Easy File Transfer/Charge
The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it’s out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time.
