Canon Vixia HF M500
  • CNET Editor rating:
    0.0 stars
      Overall score: 0.0 (0.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 2 reviews

Specs: HD CMOS Pro, 10.9 oz, 2.5 in, 4.8 in, Canon VIXIA HF M500 - Camcorder - Flash card, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 2.7 in

Product overview
Canon Vixia HF20
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 17 reviews

The Bottom Line: While it's more expensive than its sub-$600 competitors, the Canon Vixia HF20 and Vixia HF200 deliver a more extensive feature set for the extra money. The HF200, which lacks internal memory, is probably a better buy than the HF20, though the HF20's all-black body is a bit classier-looking. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 2.99 megapixels, Built-in flash, 12 oz, 2.8 in, Canon VIXIA HF20 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.4 in, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, 4.9 in

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

The Bottom Line: The company famous for its affordable 4K camera announces a $995 compact camera with a Micro Four Thirds lens mount that generates HD Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) and lossless compressed CinemaDNG raw files. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 12.5 oz, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.6 in, 5 in, 1.5 in

Sony DCR-DVD650
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.6 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 7 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony Handycam DCR-DVD650 offers an all-in-one, on-the-go way to capture standard-def video and burn it to a DVD, but hard-disk-drive and flash-memory models are otherwise a better option. Read review

Specs: Advanced HAD CCD, 13.8 oz, 3.5 in, 2.2 in, Carl Zeiss 60 x x Zoom lens - 1.8 mm - 108 mm - F/1.8-6.0, 5.1 in, Sony Handycam DCR-DVD650 - Camcorder - Flash card, - DVD

Canon Vixia HF M40 (Black)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.8 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: A fine follow-up to last year's M3xx series, the Canon Vixia M4xx series should please most home-movie-oriented videographers despite its relatively high price. If you don't need the EVF, the M400 is your best buy, but if you'll be shooting a lot in sunlight, it's worth it to step up to the M41. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 12.3 oz, 2.9 in, - F/1.8 - 3.0, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm, 2.8 in, Canon VIXIA HF M40 - Camcorder - Flash card, 5.2 in

Product overview
Canon Vixia HF M30
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 10 reviews

The Bottom Line: At its best, the Canon Vixia HF M3x series--composed of the M300, M30, M31, and M32--delivers a very good blend of video quality, features, and performance for the money, but some people may find the touch-screen interface extremely frustrating to use and the battery life painfully short. Plus, you really need to bump up to the highest bit rate quality. Of the series, the HF M300 is the best deal. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Built-in flash, 11.3 oz, Canon VIXIA HF M30 - Camcorder - Flash card, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, 4.8 in, 2.4 in, 2.7 in

Panasonic HDC-HS80
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 2 reviews

The Bottom Line: A functional trio of camcorders, the Panasonic HDC-SD80, TM80, and HS80 are notable for their manual exposure controls (unusual for their price class) and well-designed touch-screen interface, but otherwise you can find better options. Of the three, the SD80 is the best choice simply on price. Read review

Specs: MOS, 9.3 oz, 37 x x Zoom lens - 2.38 mm - 81 mm - F/1.8-4, 4.3 in, 2.4 in, Panasonic HDC-HS80 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 2.5 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 12 reviews

The Bottom Line: The JVC Everio GZ-MS120 is a nice little flash-memory-based standard-definition camcorder. Read review

Specs: CCD, None, 8.5 oz, 2.6 in, 2.2 in, 4.4 in, Konica Minolta 35 x x Zoom lens - 2.2 mm - 77 mm - F/1.8, JVC Everio GZ-MS120BU - Camcorder - Flash card

Canon Vixia HF S10 Reviewed on April 6, 2009 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF S10
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 5.0 stars out of 7 reviews

The Bottom Line: An excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass on the Canon Vixia HF S10 because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder. And the identical--but cheaper, because it has no built-in memory--Vixia HF S100 may also be a better buy. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Pop-up flash, 15.9 oz, 5.4 in, 2.8 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.4 mm - 64 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 2.7 in, Canon VIXIA HF S10 - Camcorder - Flash card

Panasonic SDR-H85 (Black) Reviewed on March 23, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Panasonic SDR-H85 (Black)

The Bottom Line: The Panasonic SDR-H85 standard-definition camcorder is worth considering for its manual controls and powerful zoom lens in a very compact body--not video quality. Read review

Specs: CCD, 9.6 oz, 4.2 in, Panasonic SDR-H85 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 70 x x Zoom lens - 1.48 mm - 104 mm - F/1.9-5.7, 2.5 in, 2.2 in

Canon Vixia HF R10 (Black)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.3 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 13 reviews

The Bottom Line: If you're looking to shoot great HD video on the cheap, keep looking; the Canon Vixia HF R series delivers decent video at best, even for its modest price. But for a low-priced model with mic and headphone jacks, the HF R100 is a pretty good deal. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 9.5 oz, 2.5 in, 20 x x Zoom lens - 3 mm - 60 mm - F/1.8-3.6, 2.4 in, Canon VIXIA HF R10 - Camcorder - Flash card, 4.9 in

Panasonic HDC-HS900 Reviewed on November 9, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Panasonic HDC-HS900

The Bottom Line: Panasonic's trio of prosumer camcorders, the hard-disk-based HDC-HS900 and flash-based TM900 and SD800, deliver generally excellent video quality and provide the full set of manual controls and features advanced users want. But you have to be willing to baby the white balance a bit. The TM900 is my top pick of the three for its EVF, but if you're on a tight budget the SD800 should suit just fine. Read review

Specs: 3MOS, Built-in flash, 16 oz, 2.6 in, 2.8 in, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 3.45 mm - 41.4 mm - F/1.5-2.8, 5.7 in, Panasonic HDC-HS900 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card

The Bottom Line: As the flash-memory-based equivalent of the HDR-SR11, the Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 serves up the same pleasing performance and quality as its hard-drive cousin. Read review

The Bottom Line: You can tell where Sony cut corners on this compact, flash-based HD camcorder. While it's decent, there are better options for the money than the Sony Handycam HDR-CX100. Read review
