Editor Camcorder Reviews

Hi, I’m David Elrich and I do many of the camcorder reviews at DigitalTrends.com. As a long-time CE journalist, I’ve seen camcorders morph from shoulder-mounted monstrosities to tiny models that capture full HD 3D video. Although digital cameras and smartphones can grab acceptable video clips, nothing beats a full-featured camcorder for videos you’ll want to preserve for years and show off to friends and family on a big-screen HDTV. Use the checkboxes below to help narrow your search.

Whether you’re looking for standard definition, full HD or an affordable pocket camcorder, our camcorder buying guide and picks for the best camcorders will help simplify your decision.
