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.
And it's actually black this time.
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.
The Canon Legria HF G10 camcorder's video quality is great, but its high cost and a few minor flaws mean it's lost some points in our book.
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.
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.
A quirky, fun camcorder that records only standard-definition video and low-resolution photos, the Samsung SMX-C20 would have scored higher if it had been just a little cheaper.
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.
Despite the recent interest in hard-disk based camcorders, we still love the ignoble MiniDV format for its unchallenged picture quality and easy availability the world over. Because it's a well-trodden technology, new MiniDV cameras like the GR-D240 offer what were once premium features for a surprisingly low investment
The Sony Handycam HDR-CX115E is a small but surprisingly feature-packed, high-quality camcorder. It's comparatively cheap and easy to use, too. Still photos aren't much cop, but this is a fine video device in all other respects.
An action cam with a lot of features, excellent video quality and a more affordable price, the YI 4K is undeniably a good deal.
The Canon Legria HF S21 sets new standards for home-video image quality. The camcorder is large, expensive and complicated to use, but if you're after the best, you're unlikely to hold any of these factors against it.
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.
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.
Ease of use, built-in storage and a modest set of family-oriented features are all welcome on the Canon Legria HF R18 camcorder, but they seem to come at the expense of picture quality.
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.
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.
The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10 has the potential to offer a killer combination of camera and camcorder at a budget price, but a range of performance issues and technical limitations mean that it falls some way short of being the ideal dual device
