- Sony Handycam HDR-CX220 (Silver) - CNET Reviews - Most Popular Digital Camcorders
The only thing the Sony Handycam HDR-CX220 seems to have going for it is the low price, but "you get what you pay for" has never rung truer.
- Drift HD Ghost Action Camera - CNET Reviews - Most Popular Digital Camcorders
With Wi-Fi, an LCD, and a waterproof body, as well as some nice accessories, the Drift HD Ghost uses its features to beat back the action cam competition.
- GoPro Hero3 White Edition (5MP) - CNET Reviews - Most Popular Digital Camcorders

The Contour+2 combines the best features of the entire Contour camera line in one simple, powerful flagship model.
- Canon Vixia HF M400 (Black) - CNET Reviews - Most Popular Digital Camcorders
A fine follow-up to last year's M3xx series, the Canon Vixia M4xx series should please most home-movie-oriented videographers despite its relatively high price. If you don't need the EVF, the M400 is your best buy, but if you'll be shooting a lot in sunlight, it's worth it to step up to the M41.

An extremely minor upgrade from the HV20, the Canon Vixia HV30 remains a quality HDV camcorder with a couple of performance issues.
