      Overall score: 6.6 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 17 reviews

Panasonic HDC-SD100 Reviewed on April 10, 2009 Check prices
Product overview
Panasonic HDC-SD100

The Bottom Line: Though it has a nice feature set for the price, the Panasonic HDC-SD100 doesn't deliver the quality of video you expect from an HD camcorder in its price segment. Read review

Specs: 3MOS, Built-in flash, 11.3 oz, 2.6 in, 5.4 in, 2.8 in, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 2.95 mm - 35.4 mm - F/1.8-2.8, Panasonic HDC-SD100-K - 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, 2.8 in, Canon VIXIA HF S10 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.7 in, 5.4 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.4 mm - 64 mm - F/1.8-3.0

  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 8 reviews

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

Specs: ClearVid CMOS, Built-in flash, 15.9 oz, 5.4 in, 3 in, Carl Zeiss 12 x x Zoom lens - 5.9 mm - 58.8 mm - F/1.8-3.1, Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 - Camcorder - Flash card, 3.3 in

Canon Vixia HF M40 (Black) Reviewed on May 3, 2011 Check prices
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, 5.2 in, 2.8 in, Canon VIXIA HF M40 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.9 in, - F/1.8 - 3.0, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm

  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 42 reviews

The Bottom Line: If you're ready to make the move to 16:9 videography or want to shoot a lot of romantically lit scenes, look no further than Sony's top-of-the-line single-chip Handycam. Read review

Specs: Advanced HAD CCD, Pop-up flash, 0.9 lbs, Carl Zeiss 10 x x Zoom lens - 5.1 mm - 51 mm - F/1.8-2.9, 4.3 in, 2.6 in, Sony Handycam DCR-HC90 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 3.6 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 75 reviews

The Bottom Line: For portability in a camcorder, you can't top the IP5, but its MPEG-2 footage won't meet every videographer's needs. Read review

Specs: CCD, None, 0.7 lbs, Sony Handycam DCR-IP5 - Camcorder - Micro MV, Carl Zeiss 10 x x Zoom lens - 2.3 mm - 23 mm - F/1.7-2.3, 4.1 in, 3.1 in, 1.9 in

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

Specs: CMOS, 8.8 oz, Canon VIXIA HF R32 - Camcorder - Flash card, 4.5 in, 2.1 in, 32 x x Zoom lens - 2.8 mm - 89.6 mm - F/1.8-4.5, 2.2 in

Panasonic SDR-H18 Reviewed on July 27, 2007 Check prices
Product overview
Panasonic SDR-H18
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.4 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 12 reviews

The Bottom Line: Combining the simplicity of SD recording, a roomy 30GB hard drive, a long zoom, and pleasing image quality, the SDR-H18 is a good choice for a standard-definition, hard-drive camcorder. Read review

Specs: CCD, 15.2 oz, 2.8 in, Panasonic SDR-H18 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, 2.9 in, 5 in, 32 x x Zoom lens - 2.3 mm - 73.6 mm - F/1.8-3.7

Canon Vixia HF20 Reviewed on April 20, 2009 Check prices
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, 2.4 in, 4.9 in, Canon VIXIA HF20 - Camcorder - Flash card, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2
