  • JVC GS-TD1 review

    JVC GS-TD1's 3D quality is among the best we’ve seen from a consumer camcorder, but the proprietary files means playback is limited to a direct TV connect. A decent…

  • Sony VG20 review

    The Sony VG20 is a high-end camcorder with the versatility of removable lenses.

    Score - 9 out of 10

  • Panasonic HDC-SDT750 review

    The Panasonic HDC-SDT750 is a bold step forwards into 3D videography. Perhaps more importantly, it doubles as an excellent 2D camcorder. If you own a 3D TV, it…

  • Sony NEX-VG10 review

    The Sony NEX-VG10 camera shoots 1920-by-1080 AVCHD video at 60 interlaced fields per second (you're fixed at that 60i frame rate) and maxes out at a 24mbps bit rate…

    £1,296 inc VAT

  • Sony HDR-HC1E

    This is turning into a huge year for camcorders. On the one hand, tape is under threat from DVD and hard-disk-based alternatives. But on the other, it has received a…

    £1,234 inc VAT

  • Canon Legria HF S21 review

    The Canon Legria HF S21 is Canon's flagship consumer camcorder.

    £1,200 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Panasonic HDC-HS900 review

    The Panasonic HDC-HS900 is a 3MOS-sporting camcorder with optional 3D shooting. It boasts a hugh hard drive and full manual controls; it's not cheap though.

    £1,200 inc VAT

    Score - 6 out of 10

  • Sony HDR-SR8E review

    The Sony HDR-SR8E is a well built camcorder, with very high built-in storage capacity, that produces high-ish resolution stills - but it is pricey.

    Score - 8 out of 10

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Sony Handycam HDR-SR12 review

    The Sony Handycam HDR-SR12 can record over a dozen hours of great-looking AVCHD video onto its 120GB hard drive, but it comes at a hefty price.

    £999 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Canon HV20 HD camcorder

    Compared to Panasonic's sleek HDC-SD1, the Canon HV20 HD camcorder looks a bit ungainly, mostly because it has a large MiniDV tape mechanism grafted onto one side.

    £999 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10
