Product overview
Panasonic HDC-HS80
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 2 reviews

The Bottom Line: A functional trio of camcorders, the Panasonic HDC-SD80, TM80, and HS80 are notable for their manual exposure controls (unusual for their price class) and well-designed touch-screen interface, but otherwise you can find better options. Of the three, the SD80 is the best choice simply on price. Read review

Specs: MOS, 9.3 oz, Panasonic HDC-HS80 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 37 x x Zoom lens - 2.38 mm - 81 mm - F/1.8-4, 2.5 in, 2.4 in, 4.3 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, Canon VIXIA HF M30 - Camcorder - Flash card, 4.8 in, 2.7 in, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, 2.4 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.2 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 20 reviews

The Bottom Line: Delivering high-quality MiniDV footage and decent still images, the Panasonic PV-GS320 should appeal to advanced amateurs searching for a tape-based camcorder. Read review

Specs: 3CCD, 0.54 megapixels, 15.9 oz, 3.3 in, Leica 10 x x Zoom lens - 3 mm - 30 mm - F/1.8-2.8, 3.1 in, 5.8 in, Panasonic PV-GS320 - Camcorder - Mini DV

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

Sony HDR-CX520V Reviewed on February 24, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Sony HDR-CX520V
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.6 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 2 reviews

The Bottom Line: The geotagging capability remains mostly a novelty, but the top-notch video quality of the Sony Handycam HDR-CX500V and HDR-CX520V make them worthy options. Because internal memory is overpriced, the HDR-XR500V is the better deal of the two, though you may want to opt for a 2010 model that supports SD cards rather than Sony's Memory Stick. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 12, Built-in flash, 13 oz, Sony Handycam HDR-CX520V - Camcorder - Flash card, 5.2 in, 12 x x Zoom lens - 5.5 mm - 60 mm - F/1.8-3.4, 2.6 in, 2.6 in

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, Panasonic HDC-SD100-K - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.8 in, 5.4 in, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 2.95 mm - 35.4 mm - F/1.8-2.8, 2.6 in

      Overall score: 6.2 (3.0 stars)

  • 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, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.4 mm - 64 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 2.7 in, 5.4 in
