Question

Will Best Buy sell the CX160/b?

Will Best Buy carry the CX160/B? I see the SKU 2550085 for the CX160/B, but this is a special order through Best Buy for Business and for some reason the price is $576.99. Will this product be available as a part of the regular selection?

Flash memory has no moving parts and has less heat requirements, consuming less power giving you a longer battery life. The trade-off is storage size. you can compensate for this by adding up to a 32GB removable memory card (Memory Stick PRO Duo media, SD/SDHC media).
 
Products from my answer
Sony - 32GB Memory Stick PRO Memory Card - Black
 
 
 
Sony - 16GB Secure Digital (SD) High Capacity (SDHC) Class 4 Memory Card
 
 
 
Sony - 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo Memory Card

Question

Focusing

I bought this camera about 2 weeks, i have a problem about focusing, when i try to zoom more than 5x it becomes blurry, i know it's focusing for the Depth of Field, but it takes too long to become clear. I tried to zoom to maximum and it takes more than 20 seconds for it to becomes clear, it's on Auto mode, is there any other ways to speed it up? or even better, can i turn the focusing off?

Yes it will. This camcorder comes with a InfoLITHIUM® (NP-FV50) Battery.
Your camcorder operates only with an “InfoLITHIUM” V series battery packs

NP-FV50 / NP-FV70 / and NP-FV100 are all compatible with your camcorder.

The HDR-CX160 and the HDR-CX160/LI are separate models. functionally both are identical. the only variance is the color of the camcorder body.

HDR-CX160/LI = Light Blue
HDR-CX160 = Black
