Holiday gift guide: Top 5 HD pocket camcorders of 2010

We shortlist the best HD pocket cams from Sony, Flip, Panasonic and more

Pocket camcorders are small, flash-memory based cameras designed for casual users and video bloggers. They are around the size of a digital compact camera and are very easy to shoot with (simply point and press record). This makes them a good choice for families, as everyone - including young children - will be able to have a turn. They are also more affordable than traditional camcorders, with some models costing under $200.

All of the pocket camcorders featured on this list record video in high-definition and come from respected brands such as Sony, Panasonic and Cisco. To read our full, in-depth review, click on the photo of each camcorder.

Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20

Despite a few design quirks, the Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 is a definite improvement over its non-touchscreen-equipped predecessor. It is capable of taking very attractive video and is ultra-stylish to boot.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
