Sony Action Cam AS100V
Built-in image stabilization and high bitrate recording make this Sony's best Action Cam yet, but there are still a few usability quirks remaining.
Sony Handycam HDR-CX220 ( Black)
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.
Sony Handycam HDR-CX190
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.
GE DV1 Pocket Video Camera ( Green)
The rugged GE DV1minicamcorder is OK for casual Web videos. If you need more than that, look elsewhere.
Flip UltraHD 2010 ( 1 Hour, Blue)
The Flip UltraHD 1 Hour is an OK entry-level mini camcorder if you just need something simple to shoot and share video, but there are better options.
Flip UltraHD 2010 ( 2 Hour, White)
The Flip UltraHD 2 Hour is a solid update to an excellent mini camcorder, while staying as simple to use as the original.
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.
Creative Labs Vado HD 3rd Gen ( Red)
Though the Creative Vado HD 3rd Gen doesn't do quite enough to distinguish itself from the competition, it does offer some nice improvements over earlier Vado HD models that keep it relevant in the pocket camcorder space.
Flip UltraHD ( 2009, White)
The Flip Video UltraHD may not be the sexiest mini camcorder out there, but it offers a respectable feature set and some of the best video we've seen from this type of cheap, YouTube-friendly camcorder.
Panasonic PV GS80
The Panasonic PV-GS80 is a serviceable budget camcorder, but better choices are out there.
