I'm looking for any feedback on the new Sony's cameras for all aspects of jumping. Thanks.

The CX760 has awesome stabilization technology (B.O.S.S.), which is a plus. It's also about $1400, which is a minus.

I have seen it for sale around 1099. What is holding me back is the lack of boxes and mounts.

That being said I am almost 99% sure I am buying a CX760 and a new helmet at the end of this season!

Do the projector models actual project worth a damn?

I saw them for that price, too. Ordered one from one place (small shop), they delayed and delayed until I finally cancelled the order. The same thing happened at another small shop with a similar price (I'm not sure what their game is with that, by the way, other than hoping they can buy them cheaper and satisfy open orders...) Finally gave up and bought it from B&H.

I don't have the projector model - if I'm going to buy a fancy camera, I figured it was best to hook it up with a mini-HDMI to a decent TV, not broadcast it on a wall...

I hear you on the projector. I just thought it was an interesting gimick. Nothing we would have even thought of 10 years ago.
