The New iPhone's Camera Does Something Really F*cking Cool

Sony Bloggie vs. Flip Video vs. Kodak Playsport vs. Samsung E10 Camcorders

Battle of the Pocket-Sized Camcorders: How They Stack Up

Although a pocket-sized camcorder is perfect for seasonal vacations, they can come in handy all year-round which makes them the perfect holiday gift for a budding videographer. This year, I've been especially sweet on the Kodak Playsport HD, but there's been some other players that caught my eye as well — the Samsung E10 for example. It's a sleek looking camcorder, which not only boasts an HDMI out, USB connector, and 1920x1080 full-HD video capture, but a 2.7-inch touchscreen LCD screen to boot.

Want to know how these, along with the Sony Bloggie and Flip SlideHD camcorders rank? Check out all the stats, and my take on which one you should add to your wish lists after the break.

If I'm going off of looks alone, I'm all about the new Samsung E10. Its cool white exterior and swiveling lens make it all the more worthwhile to carry around. If we could only find out how much recording time and storage we were working with here, I could be able to make a definitive decision. However, since those stats are missing from the press release (the E10 isn't due out until September), I'll have to tip my hat and recommend the Kodak PlaysportHD yet again. Its 10-hour HD recording time, affordable price tag, rugged outer body, and waterproof abilities make this the camera to toss in your bag for your late Summer camping trips, and keep around for your Winter sports excursions.

My fiance bought me a flip for my birthday, and I love it! its not the HD one, but it takes awesome video on the go. Everything is perfect about it, except it needs a flip out screen, but I think the one of the new ones has that. :)

It's amazing how much camcorders have changed. I remember when they were these humongous things that you had to place on your shoulder just to film. And you had to tote camcorders in large black bags.Now all you have to do is pull it out of you back pocket and hold it up. They went from weighing a ton and unclear, to weighing almost nothing and have wonderful clarity and features. And I love all the colors that you can chose from too.
