iON Air Pro 2

One of the better action cam options available, the iON Air Pro 2 improves on the original, while still offering a good value.

Panasonic HDC-SD800
REVIEW

Panasonic HDC-SD800

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.

Panasonic HDC-SD40
REVIEW

Panasonic HDC-SD40

Panasonic's HDC-TM40, TM41 and SD40 are some of the cheapest camcorders you can buy with a zoom lens and manual controls. If you care about video quality, spend a little more money on another model; if you don't, buy the cheapest one of these you can find, adjusting for the cost of memory for the SD40.

Caidrox CD-3000
REVIEW

Caidrox CD-3000

The Caidrox CD-3000 drive recorder combines a good deal of information about on-road incidents that would come in handy for determining fault in a crash, but it helps to be computer-adept to use its viewer software.

Sony Handycam DCR-SX45 (Black)
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.

Kodak Playsport Zx5 (Red)
REVIEW

Kodak Playsport Zx5 ( Red)

The rugged Kodak PlaySport Zx5 is a very good minicamcorder, but falls just shy of improving on last year's model, despite being more durable.

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.

Kodak Playfull HD Video Camera  (Silver)
REVIEW

Kodak Playfull HD Video Camera ( Silver)

The Kodak Playfull minicamcorder is a pocketful of video fun, but it might be just too "mini" for some.
