Experts and Pros
The NEX-VG20 is a Full HD camcorder with an APS-C sensor and a 18-200mm zoom lens with autofocus. Image quality in 50p resolution is very good and 5.1 audio is a nice addition. There's even a swivel viewfinder/screen! All that's missing is a motorised zoom.
With 50p resolution, a wide-angle lens and a superb LCD screen, the Panasonic HC-V700 has plenty of strengths, including an exceptionally sharp image. The price of this excellent camcorder has come down a lot since it initially launched, making it an even better buy!
For just under £200, the Sony CX190 camcorder films Full HD video with a very effective stabilisation system (that even works when you're walking around) and a powerful 25x zoom. You'd be hard pushed to find a better option at this price!
GoPro Hero3 Black Edition
The GoPro Hero3 Black Edition is easily the action cam with the biggest range of features right now. It gives great image quality (for a pocket camcorder) and comes with good accessories.
While some manufacturers are turning to Wi-Fi, Sony has decided to make a range of camcorders with built-in projectors. You can therefore watch back your home movies with friends and family no matter where you happen to be!
