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

  • Average user rating: 5.0 stars out of 1 review

The Bottom Line: The only thing the Sony Handycam HDR-CX220 seems to have going for it is the low price, but "you get what you pay for" has never rung truer. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 6.3 oz, - Camcorder, Sony Handycam HDR-CX220 - Flash card, 2.2 in, 2.1 in, 4.6 in, 26 x x, Carl Zeiss Zoom lens - 2.1 mm - 5.7 mm - F/1.9-4.0

    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 21 reviews

The Bottom Line: An extremely minor upgrade from the HV20, the Canon Vixia HV30 remains a quality HDV camcorder with a couple of performance issues. Read review

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.6 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 4 reviews

The Bottom Line: They're cheap and capture video, but don't buy the Sony Handycam HDR-CX190, CX200 or CX210 thinking that you're getting a great bargain on a real HD camcorder. If you're going to buy one, get the cheapest; nothing on any of these is really worth the extra bucks. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 1.31 megapixels, 5.9 oz, - Camcorder - Memory stick Pro Duo, Sony Handycam HDR-CX190, 4.5 in, 2 in, 2.2 in, 25 x x, Carl Zeiss Zoom lens - 2.5 mm - 62.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2

Product overview
JVC Everio GZ-EX250

Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10 Reviewed on October 3, 2011 Check prices

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

    3.5 stars Very good
      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

Specs: Exmor APS HD CMOS, External, 2.9 lbs, 11 x x Zoom lens - 18 mm - 200 mm - F/3.5-6.3, 5.2 in, 3.8 in, Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 - Camcorder - Flash card, 11.6 in

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

The Bottom Line: Though it lacks some audio flexibility and isn't recommended for 24fps shooting, the HDR-FX1 provides advanced consumers with professional-level video controls and entry-level pros with an affordable starting camcorder. Read review

Specs: Super HAD 3CCD, 921600 pixels, No, 4.4 lbs, Sony Handycam HDR-FX1 - Camcorder - Mini DV (HDV), 7.1 in, Carl Zeiss 12 x x Zoom lens - 4.5 mm - 54 mm - F/1.6-2.8, 5.9 in, 14.4 in

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, 4.9 in, 15 x x Zoom lens - 4.1 mm - 61.5 mm - F/1.8-3.2, 2.4 in, 2.8 in, Canon VIXIA HF200 - Camcorder - 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, 5.7 in, Panasonic HDC-TM900 - Camcorder - Flash card, Leica 12 x x Zoom lens - 3.45 mm - 41.4 mm - F/1.5-2.8, 2.8 in, 2.6 in

      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 6 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony Handycam HDR-FX7 is an excellent high-definition camcorder from a video perspective, but it's less satisfying if you're an audio control freak. Read review

Specs: 3 ClearVid CMOS, 1.04 megapixels, None, 3.1 lbs, 6.1 in, Carl Zeiss 20 x x Zoom lens - 3.9 mm - 78 mm - F/1.6-2.8, Sony Handycam HDR-FX7 - Camcorder - Mini DV (HDV), 5.7 in, 12.7 in
