Sony Handycam HDR-CX130 (Black) Reviewed on May 9, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-CX130 (Black)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 9 reviews

The Bottom Line: 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. Read review

Sony Handycam DCR-SX45 (Black) Reviewed on June 14, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam DCR-SX45 (Black)

The Bottom Line: Sony's Handycam DCR-SX45, SX65, and SX85 standard-definition camcorders pack a megazoom lens at a reasonable price; one look at the standard-definition video, though, and you might regret not spending a bit more for an HD model. Read review

Specs: Advanced HAD CCD, 8.1 oz, Sony Handycam DCR-SX45 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2 in, 2.2 in, 4.9 in, Carl Zeiss 60 x x Zoom lens - 1.8 mm - 108 mm - F/1.8-6.0

JVC Everio GZ-EX250 Reviewed on July 11, 2012 Check prices
Product overview
JVC Everio GZ-EX250

The Bottom Line: As entry-level camcorders go, JVC's Everio GZ-EX250 is an OK option, especially if Wi-Fi functionality and a 40x zoom lens are at the top of your want list. Read review

Specs: BSI-CMOS, 8.3 oz, JVC Everio GZ-EX250 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.2 in, Konica Minolta 40 x x Zoom lens - 2.9 mm - 116 mm - F/1.8, 4.7 in, 2 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.2 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 10 reviews

The Bottom Line: Sony's Handycam DCR-SR68 (and larger-capacity SR88) offers up ample storage and a megazoom lens at a reasonable price; one look at the standard-definition video, though, and you might regret not spending a bit more for an HD model. Read review

Specs: Advanced HAD CCD, 9.9 oz, 2.2 in, Sony Handycam DCR-SR68 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 2.6 in, 4.2 in, Carl Zeiss 60 x x Zoom lens - 1.8 mm - 108 mm - F/1.8-6.0

Canon Vixia HF200 Reviewed on April 20, 2009 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Vixia HF200
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 29 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, 4.9 in, 2.4 in, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, Canon VIXIA HF200 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.8 in

Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10 Reviewed on October 3, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 4 reviews

The Bottom Line: You're paying a couple hundred extra for the projector in the otherwise frills-free Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10 over its identical twin, the CX160. But if you regularly show off your vacation videos in the homes of friends and family then it's worth it. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 10.9 oz, Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.3 in, 30 x x Zoom lens - 2.1 mm - 63 mm - F/1.8-3.4, 5 in, 2.6 in

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 12.2 oz, 2.6 in, - Camcorder, Sony Handycam HDR-PJ430V - Flash card, 30 x x, Zoom lens - 1.9 mm - 57 mm - F/1.8-4.0 G, 2.4 in, 4.8 in

Panasonic HDC-TM900 Reviewed on November 9, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
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, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 3.45 mm - 41.4 mm - F/1.5-2.8, 2.6 in, 2.8 in, 5.7 in, Panasonic HDC-TM900 - Camcorder - Flash card

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.4 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 18 reviews

The Bottom Line: Convenient, well-designed camcorders that look pricier than they are, models in the Canon FS series--FS11, FS10, and FS100--nevertheless deliver typical budget video in line with their budget price tags. Read review

Specs: CCD, 9.2 oz, 37 x x Zoom lens - 2.6 mm - 96.2 mm - F/2.0-5.2, 2.4 in, 2.3 in, 4.9 in, Canon FS100 - Camcorder - Flash card

The Bottom Line: 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. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 8.8 oz, Sony Handycam HDR-CX160 - Camcorder - Flash card, 30 x x Zoom lens - 2.1 mm - 63 mm - F/1.8-3.4, 4.5 in, 2.2 in, 2.1 in

  • CNET Editor rating:

      Overall score: 6.2 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 17 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony Handycam DCR-SR45 has a good design and reasonable feature set for its price, but the video quality doesn't measure up to the rest of the package. Read review

Specs: Advanced HAD CCD, None, 12.3 oz, 4.4 in, Carl Zeiss 40 x x Zoom lens - 1.9 mm - 76 mm - F/1.8-4.1, Sony Handycam DCR-SR45 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 3 in, 3 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 29 reviews

The Bottom Line: One of a pair of Canon's first flash-based camcorders, the Canon Vixia HF100, delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 13.4 oz, 2.5 in, 12 x x Zoom lens - 4.8 mm - 57 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 5.1 in, Canon VIXIA HF100 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.9 in

  • 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, 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, 3.5 in, 2.2 in

      Overall score: 6.6 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.0 stars out of 11 reviews

The Bottom Line: If storage amount, zoom range, and easy operation are on your list of needs before video quality, check out the Sony Handycam DCR-SR47. Read review

Specs: Advanced HAD CCD, 10.6 oz, 4.4 in, Sony Handycam DCR-SR47 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 2.7 in, 2.4 in, Carl Zeiss 60 x x Zoom lens - 1.8 mm - 108 mm - F/1.8-6.0

Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V Reviewed on May 26, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.9 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 10 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V fares well compared with the competition, though its video could be a bit sharper and the interface less cumbersome. Unless you absolutely need to store a lot of video on the camcorder--which I don't suggest--or if have large hands that could benefit from the extra grip that the hard drive provides, the CX550V is a better deal than its hard-disk-based sibling. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, Built-in flash, 15.5 oz, Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.9 in, 2.6 in, 5.6 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 3.8 mm - 38 mm - F/1.8-3.4
