Best deal for video alone - Panasonic HC-V10 HD.

The videocamera segment is also smarting from the smartphone trend: Revenue dropped by nearly 50% between 2010 and 2011, and continued to fall last year, according to Euromonitor International.

While models with HD shooting capability and 10x optical zoom went for as much as $1,500 a few years ago, you can now find good options for under $400, says Chris Chute of IDC. And Sony recently cut the cost of some of its models by $50.

Best deals:
For stills and video: Sony HDR-CX220/L, $200
For video alone: Panasonic HC-V10 HD, $187
