The Bottom Line Sony's Bloggie Duo minicamcorder makes it easier to be part of your own movie clips and photos. But that's about all it does. The Kodak Playsport is an excellent minicamcorder that can take some rough treatment and capture solid HD video. 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. While it's got a great shooter feature set and good video quality, the Canon Vixia HF G10 still feels a bit expensive for what it offers. The Samsung HMX-W200 might be a little less impressive than its specs, but it's still a very good rugged minicamcorder for the money.
