I have taken at least 100 photos withe Sony CX260V. Daylight photos are acceptable but not the quality I would want if I was using a 8-9 meg pixal camera. Low Light shots are worse than expected. I am working with the camera now to learn how to use the manual features instead of auto features and have been able to make some improvements in picture quality. Even better on the video recording side using the manual feature settings versus auto. Basically - it is a decent HD video camcorder with a camera feature that is nice to have when you do not want to carry two cameras.

Yes the picture quality is quite acceptable. It works the other way too - a Sony still picture camera with a high resolution image capture takes surprisingly great HD video!

Absolutely, I didn't buy it for that but, during my granddaughters birthday party I unintentionally took a close up of her. It was so good that I had an 8x10 made. It would definitely take the place of an entry level digital camera.

I used this camera and the pictures were fantastic and on par with any other camera I used.

Yes, i have taken few pictures and it seems good not like other handycams where it seems the picture taken are with 1 or 2 Megapixel ordinary phone

go for it if you are concerned about the picture it should live up to your expectation

From the very few still pictures that I took, they look a little less quality than a 8-9 megapixel. But it is still an ok photo

I would agree with most of the assessments on the quality. It isn't bad, but it ain't great! What would really be a great benefit is a strobe flash if they could have provided or would be an accessory to use. Much better for outdoor in full light level photography than for indoor "birthday party" snapshots.
