  • 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…

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Sony HDR-TG5 review

    The Sony HDR-TG5 is a flash memory-based high-definition camcorder aimed at the casual and the fashion-conscious. (Sounds like a TV soap opera, doesn't it?)

    £761 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Sony Bloggie MHS-CM5 review
