4 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

This video camera received an expert rating of 80% from parentesis.com.

Sony Has Good Video Camera Reviews

On average Sony camcorders have good ratings as do all video cameras produced by Sony.

Easy to Use

One person who purchased the Sony HDR-PJ260V reckoned that it was easy to use. Booredatwork.com mentioned in their review of this camcorder “I have used the Sony Handy Cam HDR-Pj260v for quite a while now”.

Good Technical Features

One customer who purchased it said that it had good features. Expert review site Booredatwork.com mentioned “This is a camcorder that comes with main unique features including a built-in projector”.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The HDR-PJ260E does not have an image stabilizer. Most of the other comparable spec camcorders that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have an image stabilizer.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have an image stabilizer to this camcorder and we think the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The HDR-PJ260E does not have an HDMI, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other video cameras that have been available for more than two years also do not have an HDMI.

It is worth also looking at alternative video cameras which also have an HDMI including the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price].

Not Full HD

Like most of the other camcorders of this type and age, the Sony HDR-PJ260E is not Full HD.

Camcorders which are Full HD that might also be worth looking at include the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price], or the GoPro Hero 3[plb_2666018_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Like most of the other similar spec camcorders that are a comparable age to the HDR-PJ260E, the HDR-PJ260E does not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

Most camcorders that have been available for a similar time to the HDR-PJ260E do not have a built-in display. The Sony HDR-PJ260E is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in display.

We compared all the other camcorders which also have a built-in display to this video camera and we think the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not Waterproof

Like most of the other comparable spec video cameras that were launched more than two years ago, the HDR-PJ260E is not waterproof.

Camcorders which are waterproof that might also be worth considering include the Vivitar DVR786[plb_2962201_price].

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The HDR-PJ260E does not have a night mode. Most of the other comparable spec camcorders that have been around for around the same time as the HDR-PJ260E also do not have a night mode.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with a night mode and we think the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price], or the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D

The HDR-PJ260E is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other video cameras of this age and spec are also not 3D.

If you are looking for a video camera that is 3D then you might want to look at the Sony HDR-TD20VE[plb_1505099_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

The Sony HDR-PJ260E does not have a built-in projector, although it is worth noting that most of the other video cameras that have been around for a similar time to the HDR-PJ260E also do not have a built-in projector.

It is worth considering other video cameras which also have a built-in projector including the HDR-PJ420E[pl_1583936_price], or the HDR-PJ820[pl_2109593_price] both from Sony.
