Lots of manual controls for a budget camcorder.
The Panasonic HC-V500M is a good entry-level camcorder, and it has plenty of updates over the previous HDC-TM40. But Panasonic failed to improve the V500M's low light capabilities, which ends up being the camcorder's biggest weakness. Still, if you're looking for a sub-$500 camcorder with a lot of controls and decent image quality, then you've come to the right place. The HC-V500M has more full-fledged manual settings than the competition from Canon, Sony, and JVC in this price range.
Great camcorder for the price,
I like this camera but there are some downfalls. I purchase the camera or 1080 p Recordings but only redners in 720. The camera has no manual focus for soft focus affects so there is no depth to the video quality. The camera has great day quality footage but but becomes pixelated at night. this is a great camera but nothing Iof high quality. Great for the average consumer.
Sophisticated optical image stabilisation
The HC-V500 is another camcorder from Panasonic that doesn't quite hit the price mark for a true budget model. If you're really tight on cash, we would still recommend a more keenly priced alternative such as JVC's HD Everio GZ-E205. But if you have a little more to spend, the HC-V500 has a more generous array of configuration options and superior image stabilisation, making it worth the extra money.
Poor Cordination and Poor Byndling
The Bag is of not of a very good quality, but an average one. Instead of the Promised wide and tele Lenses I got two sets of Filter. ( One 46 mm Dia and the other 58 mm )
The spare Battery does not even stay on the Rapid charger, It keeps on falling down. The Mini stand, I do not know how useful it would be. The card Reader is Good. + many more is only a screen Protector film. The Handycam is really good which works very well.
When you first hear about it, the ability to convert 2D video to 3D with the JVC GZ-HM960 sounds kinda cool. When you really get into the feature, however, you'll see that it's more or a disappointment than anything else. All the camcorder does when you press the large, blue 3D button is it produces a fake 3D effect.
Great image quality
The Everio GZ-HM960BEK is a decidedly strange camcorder, although we've come to expect this kind of left-field approach from JVC. Its image quality is excellent, and it has a decent array of manual settings. The 2D/3D conversion also works better than you would expect. However, the inclusion of this technology and the glasses-free 3D display have pushed the price of this camcorder to equal or more than the top-end 2D-only models from JVC's main competitors.
An affordable price
The Sony HDR-CX110 camcorder performs pretty well given its size, with video quality ranging from good to excellent. However, filming in low light, it can prove inferior. The only big downside to its performance is its saving time for buffered video. It just takes too long to save video in buffered recording mode.
Pictures are sharp and clear consistently, hard to take a bad one
The Polaroid t1232 is a colourful and stylish compact digital camera that has a few unique features but is ideal for those looking for a standard camera they can use in any environment. The 12 megapixel camera has 3X optical zoom, 5X digital zoom and 32MB built-in storage.
great beginner camcorder
Three camcorders diverged in a market and we took the cheapest one. The Canon FS200 is part of Canon's 2009 standard-definition memory camcorder lineup, but take heed to our review. There are three considerable price gaps rooted between the , FS21 and FS200, the FS200 being the most financially amenable option. However, the FS200's basic imager couldn't match the quality of the FS22.
high resolution images
The Sony DCR-SR47E Handycam Camcorder has a built-in 60GB hard disk drive which offers extended, hassle-free recording and a professional-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens delivers sharp, high resolution images. For close-ups, you will appreciate a powerful 60x optical zoom. Hybrid technology even allows you to record video to the hard drive or optional Memory Stick Duo media.
super compact camcorder
The entry-level Sony DCR-SR47 may seem different from the exterior this year, but not much has changed under the hood. The DCR-SR47's flashy two-tone body and 60x optical zoom may be the ultimate beginner lure from the get-go, but we found a significant deficiency in the features and image quality departments. Sony's decision to downgrade the sensor and pixel count baffled us, and it just hurt the camcorder in the long run.
extremely stylish, attractive camcorder
Traditional camcorders have a basic style that hasn’t really changed since the ‘80s. Oh, you’ll see a few attempts at a vertical shape now and then, or some fun with body materials, like the new Samsung models that use the Touch of Color finish first seen on Samsung HDTVs. But JVC has taken a completely radical approach with its Everio X, a high-def video maker that looks like a chic clutch held by a Louis Vuitton model scampering down a catwalk.
very attractive, high-quality 1080p camcorder
The JVC Everio X (GZ-X900) is an extraordinarily compact digital camcorder capable of capturing video at full HD 1080p resolution. Read our in-depth review to see if it manages to slim down without sacrificing quality. By Michael Patrick Brady.
effective widescreen video resolution
Based on the HDR-TG5V’s diminutive size, some folks might be tempted to think of Sony’s new ultra-compact HD Handycam as being little more than a Flip with an inflated price tag. But that’s just not so. This little marvel of consumer-grade camcorder engineering has most of the same features found in Sony’s portlier high-definition video cameras, including SteadyShot image stabilization, manual focus, and even a relatively large internal solid-state drive capable of holding hours worth of...
