Best HD camcorder to buy in autumn 2011

How to choose a best HD camcorder?
Buying a right camcorder is a required course to get an ideal camcorder and enjoy it completely. So, how to choose?

Flash comes first!
For the smallest, lightest, and lowest-cost models--pocket camcorders in particular--an internal, fixed flash drive may be the camcorder's only storage option. In the case of pocket camcorders, storage space may top out at 4GB or 8GB, which is just enough space for an hour or two of footage. A flash drive is generally more durable than a hard drive due to its solid-state nature. Relatively, you can't swap disk drives in and out, so a hard-drive-based camcorder is less convenient for shuttling video files from the camera to your PC or Mac than a camcorder with removable storage.

What is Full HD and the good Full HD cameras

Is my new Full HD Camcorder, really a Full HD Camcorder?
"I've been sold a full HD Panasonic Camcorder but is it really Full HD?
I have been searching for a Full HD Camcorder for quite a while, and eventually yesterday I took the plunge and I bought a Panasonic HDC-SD41.However I then read a review for a JVC Everio OZ - HM445. This camcorder gets fabulous reviews, and also "claims" to be a Full HD Camcorder."
From Yahoo Answer!

When search Yahoo Answer! I found many people are confused with Full HD and doesn't know which Full HD camera should to buy. So let's get clear what Full HD is firstly.

Full HD defined:
In the past, 1080p are High Definition display format for HDTVs, with HD demand by family use camera, now 1080p are widely used in family camera and is called Full HD also. In 1080p means each frame of video is sent or displayed progressively. This means that both the odd and even fields (all 1,080 pixel rows or pixel lines) that make up the full frame are displayed together. This results in a smoother looking image, with less motion artifacts and jagged edges.

Full HD Camcorders and cameras
Many consumer camcorders and professional video and DSLR photo cameras can capture 1080p24, 1080p25, or 1080p30 video, often encoding it in progressive segmented frame format.
As of 2011, there are a few best consumer AVCHD/NXCAM camcorders that can capture 1080p50 and 1080p60 video, including Panasonic HDC-TM700, HDC-HS700, HDC-SD700, and HDC-SD600,Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000, and Sony NEX-FS100. 1080p60 include Sony CineAlta F23 camera and Sony SRW9000 camcorder (with optional 60p processing boards installed), Sony PMW-F3 camcorder. But the best one suitable our consumers are not the most expensive ones, we need some best price and with rather good quality ones and Sony is right do a good job in 2011, here are 3 types popular among Full HD market 2011.

Sony HDR-CX 130
Price: $399-S499
The price is good and it takes pretty good high definition footage. Besides, Memory sticks are pretty handy and easier to deal with than Hi-8 tapes like the older Sony standard definition camcorder used.

Sony DSC-HX100V
Price: $400-$500
This one providing an extra steady hold while zooming during movie capture and is dial in manual control and the image quality is good enough which just looks like to use full resolution files.

Sony HDR-XR150
Price: $359-$459
For this Sony Type, it is loaded with various features, but small enough to fit in pockets, fanny-packs, etc. It works great for first communion and graduation footage. Battery runtime is great. Additionally, the color and exposure and sharpness and detail are way much better.

And another issue is that the Full HD camera creates very, very large video files that take forever to import to Mac, i.e. upload to YouTube then you must find a way to make the file size smaller so that these times can be cut down, you can convert the Full HD video files to Mac compatible formats M4V, MP4, MOV, YouTube FLV use Full HD to Mac Converter distributed by Doremisoft.

AVCHD camcorder under 400 dollars: Canon VIXIA HF R20 PK Panasonic HDC-TM80R

We are glad to see both Canon and Panasonic leased new AVCHD consumer model this year, and the key is the price is rather friendly say under 400 dollars, here I choose the most popular two economical model---Canon VIXIA HF R20 and Panasonic HDC-TM80R to give a brief comparison.

The image sensor of the VIXIA HF R20 has been upgraded to a 3.2-megapixel HD CMOS Video Lens and with 28x Advanced Zoom which finally record videos in the full 1920 x 1080 resolution and the image quality looks great as it is once again powered by the DIGIC DV Image Processor.
It uses the 1/5.8" CMOS sensor form the heart of the TM80 and 42x Intelligent Zoom to recorder friendly 1920 x 1080 high def format, but it offer a 33.7mm wide-angle lens which means the visual area can support amazing distance and extension.

8GB internal flash drive and 2 SDXC-compatible memory card slots, this allows we to record up to 3 hours of crisp high definition video to an 8GB internal flash drive or to two SDXC-compatible memory card slots.
16GB built-in memory and SDXC/SDHC/SD Memory Card Recording.
The Relay Recording mode automatically switches from the built-in flash memory (once it's full) to the SDXC/SDHC/SD Memory Card and continues recording.

3.Touch Technology:
A sharp 230,000 dot LCD screen delivering brilliant color together with touch panel control for faster and easier menu navigation.
2.7" Wide LCD with Intuitive Touch Operation
The 6.7 cm/2.7" wide LCD screen allows intuitive fingertip touch-operation. When shooting, you can use Touch Zoom to instantly zoom in and out by simply touching your fingertips, and Touch Shutter to automatically focus when shooting still images by simply touching the subject on the screen. For playback, you can also change thumbnail pages by sliding a fingertip across the screen.

4.Video Quality
It provides an Auto shoot mode as well as scene modes for more specific environments. The image stabilizer works great overall, except for close-ups. The lens provides a very clear image with only minor distortion. Low light performance is only okay.
May because the low CMOS reason, the best images were taken outdoors but even these had a the look you would get if you used a water-color plug-in in Photoshop; while in lower, indoor light settings (normal lighting), even with the camera light on, there is a dirty pattern that sits over the entire image.

From the key aspects above, we can get the simple impression that, on such a price level, Canon VIXIA HF R20 does better in video and image quality while Panasonic HDC-TM80R is more advanced in Touch Technology than Canon. Both they can record HD resolution video image as high as 1920 x 1080 and the memory difference is not so big and vital because they both support SD card. The left you can according your specific require to decide which one is more suitable for you.
Tip: the bundled software of VIXIA HF R20 and HDC-TM80R are both only compatible with Windows OS, if you are Mac users, you may need a AVCHD to Mac Conversion
