Product overview
Canon Optura 50
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.9 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 6 reviews

The Bottom Line: Canon's feature-packed camcorder shoots very good daylight footage but has reason to be scared of the dark. Read review

Specs: CCD, Built-in flash, 1.1 lbs, 3.2 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 4.6 mm - 46 mm - F/1.8-2.8, Canon Optura 50 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 5.2 in, 2.8 in

Product overview
JVC Everio GZ-HD3
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.1 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 9 reviews

The Bottom Line: As a scaled-down version of JVC's GZ-HD7, the GZ-HD3 ditches some of the fancier features, but its price is still higher than we'd like for this camcorder. Read review

Specs: 3CCD, 1.3 lbs, 3 in, 3.2 in, 6.1 in, JVC Everio GZ-HD3 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, Konica Minolta 10 x x Zoom lens - 3.2 mm - 32 mm - F/1.8-2.4

Canon Optura 400 Reviewed on March 23, 2005 Check prices
Product overview
Canon Optura 400
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 8 reviews

The Bottom Line: A very good pocket camcorder that, in a pinch, can double as a decent snapshot camera. With a higher-resolution LCD and a video light, the Optura 500 is a better bet, though. Read review

Specs: CCD, 2.0 megapixels, Built-in flash, 1.1 lbs, 4.2 in, 4 in, 2.1 in, Canon Optura 400 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 10 x x Zoom lens - 4.7 mm - 47 mm - F/1.8-2.4

  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony Handycam DCR-DVD205 is as middling as its sibling, the DCR-DVD305; however, it eschews the impractical features of the DVD305 for a lower price tag, making it a better bargain. Read review

Specs: Advanced HAD CCD, 0.69 megapixels, Built-in, 1.1 lbs, 2.2 in, Sony Handycam DCR-DVD205 - Camcorder - DVD, 3.5 in, Carl Zeiss 12 x x Zoom lens - 3 mm - 36 mm - F/1.8-2.5, 5.1 in

      Overall score: 6.4 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 27 reviews

The Bottom Line: The TRV350 is a solid Digital8 camcorder. But if you don't need 8mm/Hi8 compatibility, opt for a MiniDV model instead. Read review

Specs: CCD, None, 1.8 lbs, 7.8 in, Sony Handycam DCR-TRV350 - Camcorder - Digital8, 4 in, 20 x x Zoom lens - 2.5 mm - 50 mm - F/1.6-2.4, 3.5 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 7 reviews

The Bottom Line: The JVC Everio GZ-MG555 hard-drive camcorder offers lots of control over your videos--and its photos look nice--but its steep price has us reaching for the Pause button. Read review

Specs: CCD, Built-in flash, 16.6 oz, 4.6 in, JVC Everio GZ-MG555 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, 10 x x Zoom lens, 2.9 in, 2.8 in

      Overall score: 6.2 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 13 reviews

The Bottom Line: For a moderate price, you get the convenience of recording your video directly to DVD media, but the entry-level Hitachi DZ-BX35A offers only basic features and can't deliver the image quality of Hitachi's step-up DVD camcorders. Read review

Specs: CCD, 1.1 lbs, 3.7 in, 2 in, 4.8 in, 25 x x Zoom lens - F/1.8-3.3, Hitachi DZ-BX35A - Camcorder - DVD
