    This rugged, waterproof (up to three metres) Flip-style "HD" camcorder should do well in Australia if it's priced right. 6

    The XR550V boasts a number of important improvements, including 24Mbps recording, wide-angle lens and SD card support. We'd recommend the flash-only CX550V, unless you have gigantic hands or require 240GB of storage. 7

    The GZ-MS130 is a nice, albeit run-of-the-mill, flash-memory-based standard-def camcorder. 2

    As far as mid-range camcorders go, there's not much to fault the Canon Legria HF20 for; the image quality is good, the autofocus speedy and feature list fairly full.

    Although ultimate image quality and features are sacrificed on the altar of price and pocketability, the MinoHD should be on casual videographers shortlists.

    While it's a perfectly serviceable HD camcorder, the Sony Handycam HDR-XR100 should deliver a little more of everything for the money. 7

    The Panasonic SDR-H80 has the zoom power of a telescope and offers plenty of storage in a compact body, but the video results aren't nearly as thrilling. 4

    Two SD card slots allow for up to 64GB of storage, but otherwise the MS120 is a nice, albeit run-of-the-mill, flash-memory-based standard-def camcorder. 24

    Kodak's rugged portable video camera will appeal to outdoor shooters, once they get over the unit's strange controls. 9

    If high storage capacity, long zoom range and easy operation are above video quality on your list of needs, the Sony Handycam DCR-SR47 is well worth a look. 23
