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

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

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, Konica Minolta 40 x x Zoom lens - 2.9 mm - 116 mm - F/1.8, 2 in, 4.7 in, 2.2 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, Sony Handycam DCR-SR68 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 4.2 in, Carl Zeiss 60 x x Zoom lens - 1.8 mm - 108 mm - F/1.8-6.0, 2.6 in, 2.2 in

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

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, 2.8 in, 4.9 in, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, Canon VIXIA HF200 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.4 in

Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-PJ430

The Bottom Line: Despite a perceived lull in the camcorder market, Sony announces 10 models at CES. Read review

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

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, 2.6 in, 5.7 in, 2.8 in, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 3.45 mm - 41.4 mm - F/1.5-2.8, 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, 4.9 in, Canon FS100 - Camcorder - Flash card, 37 x x Zoom lens - 2.6 mm - 96.2 mm - F/2.0-5.2, 2.3 in, 2.4 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      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, Carl Zeiss 40 x x Zoom lens - 1.9 mm - 76 mm - F/1.8-4.1, 3 in, Sony Handycam DCR-SR45 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 4.4 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 13 reviews

The Bottom Line: An excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass on the Canon Vixia HF S100 because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder. It's probably a better buy than the identical--but more expensive, because it has 32GB built-in memory--Vixia HF S10. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Pop-up flash, 15.9 oz, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.4 mm - 64 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 2.7 in, 2.8 in, 5.4 in, Canon VIXIA HF S100 - Camcorder - Flash card

Sony Handycam HDR-CX430V (Black)

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 11.3 oz, 4.8 in, Sony Handycam HDR-CX430V - Camcorder - Flash card, - Internal flash memory, 2.3 in, 30 x x Zoom lens - 1.9 mm - 57 mm - F/1.8-4.0 G, 2.6 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, 2.2 in, 2.6 in, Konica Minolta 35 x x Zoom lens - 2.2 mm - 77 mm - F/1.8, 4.4 in, JVC Everio GZ-MS120BU - Camcorder - Flash card

Product overview
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, Canon VIXIA HF M40 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.8 in, - F/1.8 - 3.0, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm, 5.2 in

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

  • 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, Sony Handycam DCR-DVD650 - Camcorder - Flash card, - DVD, 5.1 in, 2.2 in, 3.5 in, Carl Zeiss 60 x x Zoom lens - 1.8 mm - 108 mm - F/1.8-6.0
