Canon, $549

★★★ At 270g, the Legria HFR106 is at the light end of the fully fea­tured dig­i­tal

video cam­era spec­trum. It shoots video in high def­i­ni­tion, of­fers a 20x

op­ti­cal and 400x dig­i­tal zoom and records straight on to an SD mem­ory card. It has Mini HDMI, com­po­nent, AV and USB con­nec­tions and comes with all ca­bles ex­cept the Mini HDMI. While the Sony model (left) is in­tu­itive to

use, the Canon takes some per­se­ver­ance that is ul­ti­mately worth

while. It has face-de­tec­tion tech­nol­ogy, shake-re­duc­tion and what Canon calls ‘‘in­tel­li­gent auto’’ so that the cam­era recog­nises the best set­tings to use de­pend­ing on the environment. It has Dolby Dig­i­tal stereo sound and a 1.73-megapixel

still func­tion­al­ity.
