Greater than 35X Camcorders

JVC Everio GZ-R10
REVIEW

JVC Everio GZ-R10 ( Black)

JVC's move to offer consumers a durable family camcorder is solid, but the quadproof Everio GZ-R10 on the whole comes up short.

REVIEW

JVC Everio GZ-EX250

As entry-level camcorders go, JVC's Everio GZ-EX250 is an OK option, especially if Wi-Fi functionality and a 40x zoom lens are at the top of your want list.

Sony Handycam DCR-SX45
REVIEW

Sony Handycam DCR-SX45 ( Black)

Sony's Handycam DCR-SX45, SX65, and SX85 standard-definition camcorders pack 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.

Panasonic HDC-HS80
REVIEW

Panasonic HDC-HS80

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.

Sony Handycam DCR-SR88

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.

Panasonic SDR-H85
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.
