Camcorders reviews

Panasonic HM-TA1

3 stars
Panasonic has joined the pocket camcorder party with this stylish little number. But do you need it in the age of HD-shooting smartphones?

Sony HDR-XR550

4 stars
If you’ve got big-screen dreams this high-def cam has a pro-friendly wideangle lens, manual controls and 12MP stills. But can it trump its Canon rival?

Sony MHS-PM1

3 stars
Sony’s lifejacket-orange pocket camcorder certainly catches the eye. But will its video performance grab your attention?

Zoom Q3

5 stars
Zoom’s handy recorder might not fit into your pocket, but it could be the perfect toy for podcasters and footloose musicians
