    Good one..but needs some improvement

    By Ashhar

    from LA

    Comments about Sony Handycam HDRPJ260V High Definition Digital Camcor:

    Overall a very good camcorder and decent projector but giving low score due to below points: 1. indoor movies are grainy even at decent indoor lights 2. gives MTS file HD video...cannot see it in my TV via Apple TV....should support mutile formats 3. Battery sucks, it has projector so should have high mAH battery...operation is only 2 hours ..if you use projector then it hardly last for few minutes. Projector will be used when you are outside or travelling and you dont have power source..and it last for 20 to 30 mins as its eat but energy fast.....useless. With power source at home u will use your big TV not projector.

      Comments about Sony Handycam HDRPJ260V High Definition Digital Camcor:

      I bought this camcorder on a Wednesday night and recorded a 45 minute training session on Thursday morning. Didn't read instructions, just set it up at one end of the conference room and pushed record. Dropped it on our network and the video and audio quality was awesome. Another group conducted a training session that afternoon using a large TV screen it looked so clear you would think it was professionally filmed. Biggest surprise was the projector. Wasn't looking for that feature but it is really good, not just a gimmick. Another surprise is the smile feature. I didn't even know it was taking those pictures but they were great. This camcorder is way beyond what you think you are getting. I have already referred another friend who bought one.

          I was impressed with the zoom. I shot the moon and was surprised at how clear a photo I got. This camera was beyond my expectations.

          Amazing Dream Come True! Couldn't Be Happier!

          By DaBeachBum

          from Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii, USA

          Comments about Sony Handycam HDRPJ260V High Definition Digital Camcor:

          This is simply one of the most amazing devices I've ever used! This easy-to-use video camera records in 60p (not 60i of cheaper models) which is double the normal frame rate of 30 fps NTSC (USA). Records to AVCHD in a single file. It easily fits in my front pocket of my shorts. The movie screen projector is really much better than I could have imagined coming from such a small device. All friends, everyone, is totally amazed at that, as am I! Built-in GPS shows maps and shows where your videos and photos were taken in the real world. Best controlled by the included, refined IR Remote Controller, which can zoom, record, pause, playback, photos, arrow keys, and more. Another selling point for me is the 5.1 Dolby Digital microphones embedded in various spots on the camera, with two microphones for the rear speakers are directly under the 3" LCD Touch-Screen for you to narrate, with stereo mics shooting front. With an internal 16GB of empty storage space, you also can add more memory with an SDHC memory card. It has amazing anti-shake functions that work very well. Battery included runs around 2 hours, perhaps just shy of that. On the highest possible quality setting while using the internal 16 GB of memory, you may get about 1 hour and 2 minutes of recording. I'll record in nothing less. When a bird flies by my video recording I play it back frame-by-frame. Upon playback, I can study how the wings are reacting with the wind and flapping, and see it made 5 strokes(?) past my shot, right in front of me. It is amazingly cool. Plus, an actual USB cord is permanently attached to the camera, so you will always be able to connect it to any standard USB port for not only media transfer, but this will even charge your battery! It just takes a little longer, but you can easily charge your battery by simply connecting it to any USB port that is powered. Always plug directly in to the computer USB port, and not after a USB hub that splits the signals leaving inadequate power to charge. Includes extra USB extension cable for easy USB connections. Also a mini-USB port, as well as a mini-HDMI out port as well which will connect directly to your HD 5.1 surround sound audio video system. Many internal options for precise control of the whole camera system. Plus, the camera lens cover automatically opens and closes as you need it. Never worry about your lens cover again! A few drawbacks, the unit is super small, so small that my male hands of a 6 foot 210 lbs person, barely is able to get my hand through the holding spot and be able to fasten the velcro strap. This is really a bad design for bigger hands. It's just barely connected and worries me. The video record button should be on the left side of the camera, not the right as it is just not a natural place for your thumb. My thumb rests on the left of the battery, not the right. Oh and forget about indoor still photos as it is just incredibly poor. I won't even get in to it. Outside daylight photos are decent, but still have a little camera-phone type of result to the photos. It is 8.9 megapixels. One note about AVCHD video cameras is that importing and playback are more challenging than in the past. You need appropriate software on your computer. A positive note is that you can burn directly to a DVD burner and burn a disc without a computer or anything else. You can even attach it directly to an external HDD as well! And with swappable memory, you can always replace with more memory while on a vacation / holiday, or whatever you desire. Anyways, remember that the video is out of this world amazing! So small, so lightweight, just so incredible! I was very much delighted about this purchase. I returned two lower grade Sony camcorders until I found this one in particular. It has everything I could want (well, almost, the more fps the better) but I don't have money to buy broadcast type equipment in the thousands of dollars, unfortunately. So this really is a great video camera, and just watch out, don't be tricked in to buying a 60i camcorder as the interlacing is horrible and totally unacceptable. But you can lower the quality to this 60i (interlaced) recording instead of the max quality of 60p (progressive fps). Nevertheless, I basically NEED a bigger hand strap and would gladly purchase one if it exists, I haven't researched this yet. I had another similar looking Sony Webbie camcorder and it has an internal sealed battery. How with this Sony Projector HDR-PJ260V has external batteries so you can take as many as you want for backup, which is a huge bonus. Anyways, if you want great things, for the price, this is an amazing product to say the least! Thank you Sony!

          Impressive Camera

          Best Uses

            Comments about Sony Handycam HDRPJ260V High Definition Digital Camcor:

            1- The camera is easy to use. I was able to get going with it without reading the instructions. I am of the opinion that a well designed product should be intuitive, and not need instructions. This camera receives high marks in this area. I got all features working without the manual. 2- The quality of the video was extremely good. The camera focuses well, and the images are brilliant and have excellent contrast. 3- The camera came with all the needed cables, and the remote. 4- I like the built in USB cord.. it is not long at all, but it is nice to have a cord ready to plug in to re-charge, or synch with etc... if you don't have your case with all your stuff with you. 5- Face detection & - SMILE detection - check this out..not only does he camera have face detection.. but when set up, when taking a video, if it detects a smile, it takes a picture! That's pretty cool.. you may get that "one in a lifetime" shot while shooting a video! 6- Built in GPS receiver - To be honest this is kinda funky and I am just learning it., But when on (it is on by default) when you take videos (outdoors naturally) it tracks WHERE you took them.. so later on you say for example: "Remember when we were in Time Square?" Instead of looking for a file number & date on the camera, (which you can) you simply touch the "map view", find Times Square and there you are.. it will show what you shot there! It is pretty neat Finally, the jaw dropping surprise. I had expected the projector to be little more than a novelty and perhaps even a nuisance. I was shocked to see that the built in projector is actually usable. In a normal room light, you can use the projector for 8X10 projection. In a darkened room, you can project a Big and Bright movie. In addition, the playback speakers provided suitable sound, especially considering their small size. You will not be disappointed with this camera, and it is worth every cent of the price.
