The Bottom Line The Contour+2 combines the best features of the entire Contour camera line in one simple, powerful flagship model. Typical for their price class, the no-frills Sony Handycam HDR-CX130, CX160, and XR160 produce generally subpar HD video, but if you're not picky you'll probably be fine. The CX130 is the best buy of the three, as long as you go cheap on the memory card.
