Closer Voice with Face Detection
When the HDR-XR260VE camcorder’s Face Detection and smile shutter technology identify people in a scene, an Advanced Acoustic Processor automatically reduces background noise, resulting in recorded voices with outstanding clarity and intelligibility.

Tracking Focus works as an extension of the Face Detection on the HDR-XR260VE 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.

Built-in USB Cable for Easy File Transfer/Charge

The high-speed USB 2.0 cable built in to the HDR-XR260VE 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.
