Combining everything great about the Hero4 cameras and then some, the GoPro Hero5 Black is a no-compromise capture device for the ordinary and extraordinary.
GoPro one ups its own top camera with the Hero6 Black and its superior stabilization and performance in the same small waterproof package as its predecessor.
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'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.
The Sony Action Cam is a solid first effort and worth its price, but some design shortcomings may be enough to put off some potential buyers.
With a bit of tweaking, the Garmin Dash Cam 20 is a (mostly) silent witness that watches the road without attracting the driver's attention.
Sony's Handycam DCR-SR58E is one of the better standard-definition camcorders we've seen of late. It's easy to use and offers some genuinely useful features. It is, however, let down by its appalling photo quality.
The SR10 offers a good balance between value and quality in the emerging consumer HD video space.
Panasonic's SD card-based HD camcorder has exceptional zoom quality and a blinding front LED light.
While compact and convenient, Panasonic's SD-based SDR-S150 camcorder doesn't make the quality cut.
While this camcorder from Samsung doesn't represent a vast leap in technology, its features are more than sufficient for point-and-shoot users.
It would be easy to dismiss the ViewSonic 3DV5 as a gimmick, but we have to admit we had fun with it. The pocket camcorder makes filming and viewing your own 3D videos and photos simple and affordable.
The JVC Everio GZ-X900 is a slim, light and handsome camcorder that doubles up as a very decent camera. At the top settings, video and still-image quality are both good, but, while the slow-motion modes and unique optical image stabiliser are interesting extras, a few niggles and the high price might make you think twice
Its average photo quality is a shame, but the Panasonic HDC-SD60 still comes highly recommended -- few entry-level camcorders have impressed us so much in terms of both features and video performance.
It's the active image stabilisation system that finally makes shooting lengthy handheld movies or on-the-go videos a viable option, which elevates this camera from average to good.
The overall appeal of the Toshiba Camileo X400 lies heavily in its aesthetic appearance and design, which make it seem like a far more expensive camera than it actually is. Underneath this impressive exterior, however, is a very poor video camera that is as underwhelming as it is frustrating.
Bigger than its competitors, the Bloggie rewards with its novel swivelling lens head, decent video quality and 360-degree panoramic lens attachment.
The Hitachi does its job extremely well, and you may love the simplicity of recording straight on to a DVD that you can play in your home DVD player. However, compared to a MiniDV camera in the same price range, the Hitachi is less flexible and captures a slightly lower quality image. For those without directorial aspirations the Hitachi is a total solution, but for budding filmmakers the limited options for transferring your footage to PC are just too restricting
