Sony Handycam HDR-UX10
Price: $450 and up
Format: DVD and flash stick
Resolution: 1,080 lines
Zoom: 15x
Screen: 2.7-inch-wide LCD
(also has eyepiece viewfinder)
Weight: 1.2 lbs with battery

Ease of use: Intuitive and comfortable. ("Well balanced," said pro cameraman Bob Leak.) Extras like Face Detection, for focusing, are handy.

Video quality: Remarkably sharp for a low-priced high-def model. Leak was particularly impressed with how it performed in dimmer lighting.

The big picture: A great camcorder for the money. The only real nit is the limited recording time on DVDs, but the Sony does also support an 8GB flash stick.

Grade: A- The Winner
