GoPro killer? Not quite, but it's more than a warning shot.
Sony's first action camera is good. It just needs a few design tweaks and feature fixes to make it stand out even more.
The GoPro Hero4 Silver is still our top choice for most people, but if you need the best video quality with the most shooting options, the Hero4 Black is it.
The Sony Handycam HDR-FX7 is an excellent high-definition camcorder from a video perspective, but it's less satisfying if you're an audio control freak.
Panasonic has effectively redefined the high-end camcorder market with the HDC-Z10000. It's easily the most sophisticated 3D camcorder released to date, with more than enough features to satisfy any wannabe James Cameron.
This outstanding performer raises the bar for prosumer MiniDV camcorders.
A leaner, lighter version of its top POV camera, the Sony Action Cam Mini HDR-AZ1 puts big performance in a little package.
With a big zoom, a small size, and a decent price, the Canon Elura 100 is a great choice if you plan on steering clear of low-light situations.
This extremely compact, nicely designed camera should please technophiles who want both photo and video capabilities and can afford to splurge.
At its best, the Canon Vixia HF M3x series--composed of the M300, M30, M31, and M32--delivers a very good blend of video quality, features, and performance for the money, but some people may find the touch-screen interface extremely frustrating to use and the battery life painfully short. Plus, you really need to bump up to the highest bit rate quality. Of the series, the HF M300 is the best deal.
Like its sibling the HF10, Canon's flash-based Vixia HF11 delivers excellent HD video quality and performance in a tiny package. However, the HF11 delivers a bit more value for its lower price.
Not quite the little box or bullet-shaped body styles of other manufacturers, the UltiMate looks like a nice blend of interesting features and design.
Just drop Activeon's Solar X camera into its case, flip up the solar panels and you'll get up to 4 hours of additional battery life.
This compact dashboard camera isn't pretty, but it gets the job done when it comes to capturing all the things that happen out there on the road.
One of the better action cam options available, the iON Air Pro 2 improves on the original, while still offering a good value.
Along with steady and smooth 4K- and full HD-resolution video, the new cameras get an updated Live-View remote.
The GoPro Hero5 Session brings top-notch features to an already great design.
If you like GoPro's camera design and just want solid HD video, you might be able to save yourself $100 and get this instead of the $400 Black Edition.
