Camcorder gift guide for Mother’s Day

We've rounded up camcorders for every type of mum: from technophobes to soccer moms

If you’re feeling particularly generous this Mother’s Day, why not splurge out on a digital camcorder for your dear old mammy? She’s sure to appreciate it more than the obligatory Myer's gift card or a box of chocolates.

A camcorder is the perfect ‘thank you’ gift for all those years of nurturing and devotion — it’s useful, long-lasting and expensive enough to show her you care. The only thing you need to do now is decide which camcorder model to buy. This is where we come in.

Much like sons and daughters, no two mothers are alike — a camcorder that would make a fine gift for one mum might be an expensive paperweight for another. Whether your progenitor is a rough-'n'-tumble soccer mom or a tech-befuddled Luddite, you’ll find a camcorder on this list to suit her needs. So go on. Do it for your mummy!

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
