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, 2.9 in, Canon VIXIA HF S21 - Camcorder - Flash card, 5.8 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.4 mm - 64 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 3 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, 2.4 in, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, Canon VIXIA HF M30 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.7 in, 4.8 in

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, - F/1.8 - 3.0, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.1 mm - 61 mm, 2.8 in, 5.2 in

Canon GL2 Reviewed on September 23, 2002 Check prices

Canon GL2
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.9 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 55 reviews

The Bottom Line: This outstanding performer raises the bar for prosumer MiniDV camcorders. Read review

Specs: 3CCD with Pixel Shift, None, 2.6 lbs, Canon GL2 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 4.6 in, Canon 20 x x Zoom lens - 4.2 mm - 84 mm - F/1.6-2.9, 12 in, 5.4 in

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, 10 x x Zoom lens - 3.8 mm - 38 mm - F/1.8-3.4, 2.9 in, 5.6 in, 2.6 in, Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V - Camcorder - Flash card

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, 2.8 in, 5.2 in, Canon Optura 50 - Camcorder - Mini DV, 3.2 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 4.6 mm - 46 mm - F/1.8-2.8

    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: Like its sibling the HF10, Canon's flash-based Vixia HF11 delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package. However, the HF11 delivers a bit more value for its lower price. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Built-in flash, 13.4 oz, 2.5 in, 12 x Zoom lens - 4.8 mm - 57 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 5.1 in, 2.9 in, - Camcorder, Canon HF11 - Flash card

      Overall score: 8.2 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 36 reviews

      Overall score: 7.3 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 4 reviews

The Bottom Line: A solid first effort in a nascent category, the Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 nevertheless needs some conceptual refinement. Read review

      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
