Sanyo Xacti VPC-WH1 waterproof camcorder

Compared with footage from the best 1080p HD camcorders, the Sanyo Xacti VPC-WH1's 720p HD video (at 30 frames per second) exhibits noticeably - but not disastrously - reduced resolution, sharpness, colour accuracy, and motion. The VPC-WH1's overall ...

Panasonic HDC-TM300 HD camcorder

In 2008, we knocked the hard-drive-based Panasonic HDC-HS100 HD camcorder for its lacklustre video quality. But 2009 is looking up for the company, as the excellent Panasonic HDC-TM300 delivers some of the best still and video images we've seen from ...

JVC Everio GZ-X900 HD camcorder

JVC's Everio GZ-X900 high-definition camcorder ($1,999 as of October 7, 2009) has a sleek design, includes a few innovative features, and generates acceptable HD video under bright lighting conditions. Unfortunately, the unit's noticeably subpar low-...

Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 HD camcorder

The Sanyo Xacti VPC-FH1 is a low-priced digital camcorder that delivers good-looking video and stills, with image quality just slightly trailing that of HD camcorders priced nearly three times as much. Indeed, with an RRP of just $799, it's pretty ha...

The rise of online video

Apple says it has sold over 30 million videos through its iTunes Store since October 2005. That's impressive. But YouTube, currently the most popular site for sharing amateur video, claims to serve up 100 million video viewings each day. That's stupe...

HD pocket camcorders: What's the catch?

Not all HD footage is created equal. High-definition 'pocket' camcorders make compromises in video quality so as to shrink the cameras' cost and size. While their small size makes them convenient, it's important to be mindful of their considerable li...

Sony HDR-XR200V camcorder

The GPS-enabled Sony Handycam HDR-XR200V certainly sports innovative features, but it lacks the video quality needed to make it stand out from--or even measure up to--the best small AVCHD camcorders we've seen this year. It's a Sony camcorder with ov...

Panasonic HDC-HS100 camcorder

The Panasonic HDC-HS100 camcorder is a better camera than it's predecessor the Panasonic HDC-HS9, with improved image quality and greater usability. However, the $2089 HDC-HS100 has only narrowed, not closed, the image-quality gap between its own vid...

JVC Everio GZ-HD40 camcorder

A compact model with a beefy 120GB hard drive, the JVC Everio GZ-HD40 records to two formats: the compact and increasingly common AVCHD, and the higher-quality MPEG-2 Transport Stream (TS). Although it has decent automatic and manual image control, t...

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
