    Kodak Zx1 HD Pocket Video Camera Review

    Last year, Kodak was first out the gate with an HD minicamcorder, the Zi6. That model was pretty good and won some fans for its decent video quality and relatively large LCD display. This year, Kodak’s sticking with much the same as far as the guts of the camcorder, but it’s evolved...

    JVC Picsio GC-FM1 Digital Camcorder Review

    When jumping into a crowded market, especially one with a couple of strong players in the lead, a company has to work hard to distinguish its entries from the field. JVC successfully manages that with its debut product, the Picsio GC-FM1–unfortunately, not often in a good way. On sight, you’d certainly never...

    Canon Vixia HF200 Camcorder Review

    Canon’s acquitted itself quite well with a nearly identical trio of flash-based AVCHD camcorders, the HF10/HF11/HF100, and follow-up models HF20 and HF200 manage to improve upon their legacy.

    Sony Bloggie MHS-CM5 Camcorder Review

    So far, Sony hasn’t done too well in the fast-growing cheap pocket camcorder space dominated by Flip Video, characterized by candy bar vertical camcorder designs and prices ranging from about $150-$250. After an initial flop with the poorly named NSC-GC1 Net-sharing cam a few years back, it redubbed its pocket camcorder line...

    Canon Vixia HG20 Camcorder Review

    The Canon Vixia HG20 is an excellent HD camcorder that’s reasonably easy to operate out of the box and looks good, too. It’s almost identical to the company’s Vixia HF11, but rather than recording mainly to internal flash memory, it records to a hard drive. As for performance, it’s as good if...
