Samsung H200 HD Camcorder

samsung_h200_camcorder_hd.jpgMy quest for a camcorder continues, and of course Amazon is more than happy to send me newsletters containing all kinds of different options. How kind! The latest one they emailed me about is the Samsung H200, which has a 20x optical zoom, a 2.7" view screen and the ability to take 4.7 MP stills. It's not the helmet cam of my dreams though guys - this would be a little tough to strap to my head.

The best way to relive special moments is by watching them in amazing high definition on your HDTV. The best way to do this is with the Samsung HMX-H200 camcorder. Record in full HD (1920x1080 resolution) and get breathtaking images in brilliant color. It also includes 20x optical zoom so you can get close to the action and optical image stabilizer for blur-free video.

Samsung HMX-E10 1080P Pocket Camcorder

samsung_hmxe10.jpgIf you're looking for a pocket HD camcorder for under $100, you might want to check out the HMX-E10 from Samsung. It's got a touch screen, 1080p recording capabilities, and a lens that features a 270-degree swivel so you can record in all directions. More on the lens:

It features a 270° Swivel Lens built into the top of the camera that rotates 270° so you can enjoy more flexibility and achieve the perfect angle for everything you shoot. Whether it's an up-close shot on a sharp angle or filming yourself in the action, the swivel lens' ability to rotate--normal, low, and high--gives you a creative edge.

Kodak Zi8 Pocket Video Camera

kodak_zi8_pocket_video_camera.jpgThese days, it feels pretty rare to find a good piece of electronics for under a hundred bucks, but right now that's how much Kodak's Zi8 pocket camcorder is going for. It looks about the size of a cell phone and could be comparable to something like the Flip, right down to the 1080 HD video, but for a lower price. If you're on a budget and you need a hyper-portable video camera, this could be your jammy. Only 30 fps means you won't be sharing any super slo-mo vids, but if that's the only sacrifice it seems worth it.

  • Record High Definition video (1080p at 30 fps with 16:9 aspect ratio)
  • Easily upload recorded footage to YouTube with built-in USB and software
  • Expandable SD/SDHC card slot up to 32 GB; Rechargeable batteries and charger included
  • Vibrant 2.5-inch viewfinder; Watch footage on HDTV with included cables
  • Edit and share videos with included software

Sanyo VPC-WH1 HD Waterproof Flash Memory Camcorder

sanyo_vpcwh1_waterproof_camcorder.jpgI've been on a bit of a camcorder tear lately as I try to figure out which will be the best option for a camcorder to replace my only current video-recording capabilities, which are on my still camera and my phone. I've looked at a lot of camcorders recently and the Sanyo VPC-WH1 has a lot going for it - flash memory, HD recording (720p, 30 frames per second), and the fact it's waterproof up to ten feet. It's got a 30x optical zoom, and you can still use it to capture stills to your SD or SDHC card.

On top of all that it's on sale at Amazon at the time of this writing for around $130, which is almost 70% off its typical price of $399. Guess I might have to make my camcorder decision sooner than I thought - though some of the reviews lead me to believe this camera may not be quite as "waterproof" as you might like, it's a good price, especially if you're just looking for something you can take in the rain instead of snorkeling.

Kodak PlaySport HD Waterproof Pocket Video Camera Bundle

kodak_playsport_waterproof_video_camera.jpgI mentioned last week I'm looking for some kind of wearable camera for when I'm on the slopes, but I'm wondering if I shouldn't be thinking more about durability and waterproofing. I don't fall often when I ski, but when I do I fall hard, and it's into wet snow. Maybe the Kodak Playsport will offer more of the performance I'm looking for.

Heads up, adrenaline junkies. The Kodak PlaySort has as much appetite for adventure as you do. And it's not afraid to get wet. This audacious little camera can plunge up to 10 ft under water and capture the entire experience in full 1080p HD. And you don't need to worry about blurry footage when things get a little shaky. With built-in image stabilization, the Kodak PlaySort will stay steady as a rock. From the waves, to the slopes, to the mud-soaked trails, this baby was made for the extremes.
