GoPro Hero5 Black

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 Hero

Though the GoPro Hero is nearly devoid of features, this entry point for GoPro's lineup is just enough to get you started in the world of little, mountable cameras.

Canon Legria HF R106

Cheap and mostly cheerful, the Canon Legria HF R106 is by no means perfect, but it's certainly one of the best camcorder options available in the sub-£250 price bracket.

Canon Legria HF R16

By no means a spectacular camcorder, the Canon Legria HF R16 is also by no means a dud. If you can find it for a good price, you'll be pleased by its features and usability.

Panasonic HDC-SD600

The HDC-SD600 brings 1080p high-definition recording down to a slightly more justifiable cost compared to its flagship 700 range, but strips out many of the manual features in the process. Nonetheless, this is a fine enthusiast's camcorder, with excellent still photo options into the bargain. It's still somewhat pricey, but the HDC-SD600 is smart, simple and surprisingly feature-packed

Sanyo Xacti VPC-TH1

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-TH1 certainly looks the part, and has an attractive price to boot. Combined with a healthy, no-nonsense approach to filming, it has the potential to be the ideal budget hi-def option. Unfortunately, technical limitations and slow automated operation drag its overall performance down

Panasonic HDC-SD900

The Panasonic HDC-SD900 is a tremendous 1080p camcorder that's ideal for advanced users, marrying great picture quality with excellent manual controls. Its 3D capability is an added bonus, but you'll need to pay extra for the compatible lens.

Canon MV930

It may not be enough to record your entry for Cannes, but the MV930 is an exceptionally capable, affordable holiday camcorder. Good performance in well-lit environments makes it the perfect companion on sun holidays. Sticklers for top image quality will want to consider something a little more fiesty, but for casual use this is a strong contender

Hitachi DZ-HS500

The Hitachi DZ-HS500's performance is uninspired, but the hybrid storage function that allows you to edit footage on the 30GB hard and share it on 8cm DVDs is still impressive -- especially at this price.

JVC Picsio GC-WP10

It's small, tough and -- yes -- it's waterproof, too. But resistance to fluids alone isn't enough to justify the JVC Picsio GC-WP10's comparatively high cost, particularly when much cheaper camcorders often offer similar quality video and a wider selection of features.

JVC Everio GZ-MC200

It's largely thanks to the massive success of the iPod that microdrives have become so affordable. It was about time some great DV camcorders turned up with hard disks tucked away in their bellies, so we were pleased to find the JVC MC-200 is such a small and elegant use of this technology. Although you'll need to buy additional microdrives to store more than 60 minutes of footage on location, hard disk really is the future of DV

Sony Handycam HDR-XR155E

With great picture quality and a healthy amount of on-board storage for a reasonable price, the Sony Handycam HDR-XR155E is a smart choice for anyone planning to use their camcorder often. Don't expect great results on the photo side, though.

Canon Legria HF M41

Commendable performance and plenty of storage space make the Canon Legria HF M41 camcorder one to consider for advanced users. But competition is tough at this price point and there could be more attractive options available, depending on your requirements.

JVC Everio GZ-HD3

As a scaled-down version of JVC's GZ-HD7, the GZ-HD3 ditches some of the fancier features, but its price is still higher than we'd like for this camcorder.

JVC Everio GZ-MG20US

Though the MG20 sits at the entry-level of the hard-disk camcorder market, it's an impressive beast indeed. Long record times and good image quality for a single CCD camcorder make this a very tempting buy if you're looking for simplicity and convenience

Panasonic HM-TA1

If you've always assumed that camcorders are unwieldy, expensive and complicated, the Panasonic HM-TA1 is the perfect antidote to all that. It's easy to carry, simple to use and amazingly good value for money, but it has its limitations, including no HDMI output.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA100

It might be a little pricier than the average pocket camera, but stump up the extra cash and Sanyo's gun-shaped Xacti VPC-CA100 will let you shoot video and photos of a much higher quality than its fellow pocket-friendly devices. It also provides a wider range of features, including immunity to water.

Sony Action Cam Mini

A leaner, lighter version of its top POV camera, the Sony Action Cam Mini HDR-AZ1 puts big performance in a little package.
