$700 is a great price point to buy some of the higher end offerings from Canon, Panasonic and Sony in the consumer camcorder category. The pro-grade feature which makes an appearance at this price point includes the 3CCD sensors which offers superior low light performance.

The best camcorders under $700 should necessarily support high-definition video with great low-light performance.
