Camcorders

  • Sony’s Bloggie camcorders might be meant for video blogging

    Time to sweep up after CES. Devin tells me we have a hands-on with these cameras buried somewhere in our live video feed from the show but we’re unable to find it at the moment, so please allow me to paint a picture for you using good old fashioned words. Read More

  • Sanyo's CES press conference yields impressive camcorders

    Sanyo officially joined the Panasonic group as of December 21st, 2009. This decision was “due to the rapid decline of the global economy,” according to Sanyo North America president Masami Murata. “This alliance will maximize and optimize Sanyo’s corporate value and will open the way for our company to realize further business development.” Sanyo will maintain… Read More

  • Canon's entry-level camcorders gain HD in the form of the HFR series

    CES is here, even though most of your friendly neighborhood CrunchGear writers are still in their respective home states. (We’ll be arriving in Las Vegas throughout the day today.) First up for me: new camcorders from Canon. Entry-level ones, too, so don’t feel intimidated. You’ve got the HFR11, the HFR10, and the HFR100. They’re basically souped up, HD versions of… Read More

  • Unassuming cap sports hidden camcorder

    Pardon me, miss? I’d just like to tell you that I think your hat is fly. Dope, even. Too bad you’ll never remember my face. Memorize it now and then lose me forever. Unless, of course, you’ve somehow got a camcorder hidden in that thing! That’s unlikely, as your hat is far too stylish to be a technology product. Read More

  • Camcorder stuffed into ID card

    “Hey guys, what’s going on? Talking about secret company stuff? Cool. Don’t mind me. Just gonna heat up these SpaghettiOs real quick. Anyone do anything illegal lately?” For $100, now YOU can be the creepy tattle tale at your workplace. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Flip MinoHD camcorder for $120

    Ho ho ho, this may be the lowest price you’ll see on a new Flip MinoHD camcorder for a while. Amazon’s got them for $120, today only, down from $160. To be honest, Cisco just bought Flip and they’re expected to unveil some new products at CES (like, perhaps, Wi-Fi enabled camcorders?) so Flip might just be blowing these things out to make room for the new stuff. Either way… Read More

  • Giveaway: ContourHD 1080p wearable HD cam


    Update: It’s overrr! Someone won, and he’s very excited. Thanks for playing, and keep an eye out for other giveaways. ‘Tis the season. Did you see my review of the ContourHD 1080p? Well, go check it out so you know whether or not you can make use of this sucker. It’s basically a compact HD camcorder stripped of everything but the lens, sensor, and storage, stuck inside… Read More

  • Wearable ContourHD cam gets lens kit and waterproof housing accessories

    Devin recently reviewed the ContourHD 1080p, a wearable HD camcorder designed to be worn during activities that would cause other camcorders to self-destruct. One thing it couldn’t do, however, was go into the water (though it resisted some splashing). It’s not designed to be waterproof out of the box, which definitely could be a problem for divers, rafters, or other… Read More

  • Review: ContourHD wearable 1080p camcorder


    The Short Version: The ContourHD 1080p is a capable, semi-rugged, conveniently-shaped HD camcorder that’s great for all kinds of sporting and active events where a full-size camera isn’t practical. The 1080p video has admirable still image quality, but skew and compression mean it’s more of an enthusiast tool than a professional one. But for $330, it’s a great little… Read More

  • RED updates its lineup, throws a bone to current RED owners


    A relatively large announcement went live earlier today from RED, which as you’ll remember, made big promises for digital cinema a while ago — with equally big (and vague) timeframes. Today was a minor solidification of those timeframes, but many RED users were expecting solid shipping dates, and those didn’t happen. Instead, a change in strategy was announced, and a few… Read More

  • Review: Sanyo Xacti CG10 compact HD camcorder


    Short version: An excellent casual HD camcorder with superior image quality to pocket cams and a flexible focus system, making it useful for bloggers like me as well. At under $200 this thing is absolutely a steal. Read More
