Specs: 3 ClearVid CMOS, None, 4.6 lbs, 7 in, 20 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 82 mm - F/1.6-3.4, Sony Handycam HDR-FX1000 - Camcorder - Mini DV (HDV), 6.7 in, 13.7 in

Canon Vixia HF M400 (Black)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.8 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 5.0 stars out of 1 review

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, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 5.2 in, 2.9 in, Canon VIXIA HF M400 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.8 in

Panasonic HDC-TM900
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 5.0 stars out of 1 review

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, 13.9 oz, 2.8 in, 2.6 in, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 3.45 mm - 41.4 mm - F/1.5-2.8, Panasonic HDC-TM900 - Camcorder - Flash card, 5.7 in

      Overall score: 0.0 (0.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 2 reviews

Specs: CCD, None, 13.8 oz, 42 x x Zoom lens - 1.8 mm - 75.6 mm - F/1.9-4.3, Panasonic PV-GS90 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 3.3 in, 2.6 in, 4.7 in

Sony HDR-CX520V Reviewed on February 24, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Sony HDR-CX520V
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.6 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 2 reviews

The Bottom Line: The geotagging capability remains mostly a novelty, but the top-notch video quality of the Sony Handycam HDR-CX500V and HDR-CX520V make them worthy options. Because internal memory is overpriced, the HDR-XR500V is the better deal of the two, though you may want to opt for a 2010 model that supports SD cards rather than Sony's Memory Stick. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 12, Built-in flash, 13 oz, 5.2 in, Sony Handycam HDR-CX520V - Camcorder - Flash card, 12 x x Zoom lens - 5.5 mm - 60 mm - F/1.8-3.4, 2.6 in, 2.6 in

Panasonic PV GS80
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.2 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Panasonic PV-GS80 is a serviceable budget camcorder, but better choices are out there. Read review

Specs: CCD, 0.46 megapixels, None, 15.9 oz, 2.9 in, Panasonic PV-GS80 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 5.4 in, 32 x x Zoom lens - 2.3 mm - 73.6 mm - F/1.8-3.7, 3.1 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.2 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 20 reviews

The Bottom Line: Delivering high-quality MiniDV footage and decent still images, the Panasonic PV-GS320 should appeal to advanced amateurs searching for a tape-based camcorder. Read review

Specs: 3CCD, 0.54 megapixels, 15.9 oz, Panasonic PV-GS320 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 3.3 in, 5.8 in, Leica 10 x x Zoom lens - 3 mm - 30 mm - F/1.8-2.8, 3.1 in

Canon Vixia HF S21 Reviewed on June 7, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF S21
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: Though they're an excellent trio of camcorders, the Vixia HF S21, HF S20, and HF S200 are significantly more expensive than their respective competitors, especially since the S20 and S200 lack electronic viewfinders. If you can forgo some of the subtleties of the manual controls, you can probably get what you need with a cheaper camcorder. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Built-in flash, 16.6 oz, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.4 mm - 64 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 5.8 in, 3 in, Canon VIXIA HF S21 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.9 in

Canon Vixia HF M30 Reviewed on August 5, 2010 Check prices
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, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, 2.7 in, Canon VIXIA HF M30 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.4 in, 4.8 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 1 review

The Bottom Line: Panasonic's HDC-TM40, TM41 and SD40 are some of the cheapest camcorders you can buy with a zoom lens and manual controls. If you care about video quality, spend a little more money on another model; if you don't, buy the cheapest one of these you can find, adjusting for the cost of memory for the SD40. Read review

Specs: MOS, 6 oz, 2 in, 4.3 in, 16.8 x x Zoom lens - 2.9 mm - 48.7 mm - F/1.8-2.6, 2.3 in, Panasonic HDC-TM41 - Camcorder - Flash card

  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 1 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

Specs: ClearVid CMOS, Carl Zeiss 10 x x Zoom lens - 3.2 mm - 32 mm - F/1.8-2.2, Sony Handycam HDR-CX100/R - Camcorder - Flash card

  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 32 reviews

The Bottom Line: Like its cousin, the flash-based HF11, Canon's Vixia HG20 delivers excellent HD video quality and performance albeit in a slightly larger, heavier package. However, you do get more storage space and a lower price. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Built-in flash, 16.4 oz, 5.4 in, 3.1 in, 3 in, Canon VIXIA HG20 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 12 x x Zoom lens - 4.8 mm - 57 mm - F/1.8-3.0

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.4 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 10 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony DCR-SR300 digital camcorder should appeal to casual, snapshooter-type videographers, but it's somewhat pricey, since its video quality still can't match better MiniDV camcorders. Read review

Specs: ClearVid CMOS, Built-in flash, 1.3 lbs, 5 in, 3 in, 3.1 in, Carl Zeiss 10 x x Zoom lens - 5.4 mm - 54 mm - F/1.8-2.9, Sony Handycam DCR-SR300 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive
