Sony, $3299 ★★★★ The price alone would in­di­cate that this Handycam is in a dif­fer­ent league to your av­er­age dig­i­tal video cam­era. If your bud­get stretches to this model, you won’t be dis­ap­pointed in your in­vest­ment. Although a weighty 645g be­fore adding the bat­tery and lens, it feels well bal­anced in your hand. It op­er­ates at 16.1 megapix­els and the Ex­mor CMOS sen­sor gives high-def­i­ni­tion video qual­ity that pro­duces amaz­ing images. The 18mm to 200mm E-mount lens has an 11x op­ti­cal zoom. Sony’s Op­ti­cal Steadyshot is a fea­ture that al­lows for aut­o­fo­cus on the go and if you want, it can pro­duce 16-megapixel stills. The Handycam will sync with Bravia tele­vi­sions, has Mini HDMI and USB ports plus a SD/SDHC mem­ory card slot so you can ex­pand its mem­ory and hook it up to your TV and PC for fam­ily movie night.
