Best buy: We pick the best camcorder

Canon Legria HF G10
Canon Legria HF G10
Panasonic SD800

Canon Legria HF G10 €1,300

This Canon came out as best for picture quality according to a test of 147 camcorders but at around €1,300 it is far from cheap and may be wasted on the amateur who just wants to capture Christmas and other events.

Like all the other camcorders mentioned here, it comes with a memory card.

SONY HDR-CX700VE €1,110

Very high quality pictures as well as manual control over sharpness and lighting. An excellent all-rounder. Like the Canon, it can take photos while also filming video but unlike the Canon it is also able to film at night.


This is not as good as the others when it comes to picture quality but it has the important advantage of being much cheaper. The Panasonic HDC-SD99 is even cheaper and also offers a very good alternative to the more expensive alternatives.
