Most popular camcorders of 2009

CNET does some data mining to bring you end-of-year listicle fun--in this case, which camcorders popped up the most when readers read about camcorders.

Ah, long live the year-end listicle. What did we ever read (or write) in December before the media came up with the idea of compiling and disseminating lists of the best, most popular, strangest and stupidest?

Here's my contribution to the tradition for 2009--oh wait, there's also my Holiday Gift Guide offering--a potpourri of camcorder popularity as based on how many people read reviews of a product since last New Year's. As you might guess, the results are rather heavily skewed toward older products, products on our top lists, and products that we've reviewed, but I've tried to provide some context and combine new and old versions of products to try to minimize redundancy.
