REVIEW

Samsung HMX-QF20 ( Black)

For good-enough video for Web sharing and a 20x zoom lens, the Samsung HMX-QF20 gets the job done.

JVC Everio GZ-HM340 Camcorder (Black)
REVIEW

JVC Everio GZ-HM340 Camcorder ( Black)

The four sibling models--the JVC Everio GZ-HM300, HM320, HM340, and HD500--deliver subpar video for even their dirt-cheap prices.

Panasonic HDC-SD60K (Black)
REVIEW

Panasonic HDC-SD60K ( Black)

Panasonic's quartet of entry-level HD camcorders--the HDC-HS60, TM60, TM55, and SD60--delivers a nice manual feature set and good performance, as well as solid video quality for their class. As long as you don't pay list price, the SD60 is a great value, and if possible, avoid paying the unnecessary price premium for the hard drive in the HS60.

Canon Vixia HF S21
REVIEW

Canon Vixia HF S21

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.

Panasonic HDC-TM700 ( 32GB, Black)
REVIEW

Panasonic HDC-TM700 ( 32GB, Black)

The flash-based Panasonic HDC-TM700 and its hard-disk sibling, the HDC-HS700, stand out for their low-light video quality and broad set of manual controls. However, while the TM700 is very attractively priced for its class, the HS700 is not, and not worth the price premium unless you absolutely need the hard disk.

Sony Handycam DCR-SR68 (Blue)
REVIEW

Sony Handycam DCR-SR68 ( Blue)

Sony's Handycam DCR-SR68 (and larger-capacity SR88) offers up ample storage and a megazoom lens at a reasonable price; one look at the standard-definition video, though, and you might regret not spending a bit more for an HD model.

Sony Handycam HDR-CX150 (Black)
REVIEW

Sony Handycam HDR-CX150 ( Black)

Its small size and attractive price might draw you to the Sony Handycam HDR-CX150, but this bare-bones camcorder just barely delivers on the promise of HD quality.

Panasonic SDR-H85 (Black)
REVIEW

Panasonic SDR-H85 ( Black)

The Panasonic SDR-H85 standard-definition camcorder is worth considering for its manual controls and powerful zoom lens in a very compact body--not video quality.
