Pros:Great camcorder that can record in 1080P with great quality.

Cons:Plastic case seems cheap, but so far has held up

The Bottom Line: We bought this as an open box special.  We did purchase the accidental insurance mainly for the adventure that we take it on


We were looking for a camcorder that would shoot in 1080P and have good stabilization. This one went above and beyond. We filmed our hike up Mt, Adams in NH in winds of 45-55MPH with higher gusts. We never thought the video would be useable for YouTube, but we were amazed at the results. So far we have used it to record our hikes up Mt Adams and Owl's Head.
We have had the camcorder for over 10 months now and it continues impress us.  We have made  quite a few more video for our Youtube channel since purchasing it.  We have been to the summit of mountains, down in caves and even hiked over a frozen swamp to get to a geocache in a cabin and this Sony has filmed the whole adventure We were worry about the plastic housing, but .  I personally have fallen and landed on the camcorder and it is still working perfectly.
 There are a lot of features on the Camcordor and we ended up posting a video showing most of the key features to our Youtube channel.  Words can on paint so much of a picture, check out the video for a full video description.  Our channel is WeRmudfun, look for the video named," Sony Handycam HDR-CX260V Features Review, Zoom, Low Lux, Zoom Mic, Slow Motion and Raw Footage".
