In the face of mounting competition from Sony, Panasonic, and others, Canon is holding its ground in the HD camcorder market as it announced nine new flash-memory models to its Vixia line at CES 2010. With new additions to the high-end and mid-range Vixia lines, Canon also introduced a new series of entry-level models, the HF R-series.
Facing competition from the Flip and other low-cost HD cams, Panasonic is still counting on standard definition to deliver as they unveiled three new SD camcorders at CES, the SDR-H85, SDR-T50, and SDR-S50. While similar to last year's offerings, Panasonic includes some new features like 78x zoom and SDXC support.
With the introduction of the Zi8, Kodak brought full 1080p HD video capture into their low-cost pocket camcorder lineup for the first time. It also offers electronic image stabilization and 5.3 megapixel still image capture. For less than $200 it's a bargain for sure, but does video quality stand up to even a bargain basement price point?
It's a still camera. It's a camcorder. At least that's what Panasonic hopes you'll think when you think about the latest high-profile Lumix to hit the market this year: the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3. A 10.1 megapixel, 12x zoom update to Panasonic's extremely popular TZ models, the ZS3 combines the versatility of a long-zoom compact camera with the option to capture 720p high-def video at a moment's notice.
If you've ever had a desire to buy a pallet's worth of cameras, your opportunity may be coming up sooner than you thought. PhotographyBlog is reporting today that around 13,000 Vivitar cameras and camcorders will be auctioned off beginning later in the month.
The 10 megapixel, 5x zoom Samsung TL9 is a multifunction camera/media player providing camera, camcorder, and MP3 and video player capabilities in a single device.
