I'm trying to compile a list of all the newest & best models from all the hybrid cam manufacturers. If I've missed anything, please let me know!

This list only focuses only on pocket hybrid cams. I hope this will make it easier for people who are about to purchase a new hybrid and would like an easy way to see all the best models from all the major manufacturers:

DIGILIFE
- DV1080HD
- http://www.digilifeglobal.com/DV1080HD.htm



DXG
- DXG-569V
- http://www.dxgtechusa.com/new/products-list.php?pid=38



SVP
- SVP HD T-100
- http://www.svp-tech.com/t100/t100.htm



AIPTEK
- Action HD GVS (aka AHD Z600)
- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001GXR03U



SANYO
- Xacti VPC-HD100
- http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...i_sku=10629517



SANYO
- Xacti HD800
- http://www.sanyo-dsc.com/english/pro...800/index.html



SONY
- HDR-TG1
- http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/...52921665400969





I have not included many models from Sony and Sanyo because they are not pocket cameras. You cannot fit them into your pocket. The lens is huge. It might be small and it might use flash memory, but you cannot fit it in your pocket, so I did not put it here. These cameras have different capabilities and very different price ranges, too.

Did I miss a model or manufacturer? Please tell us here!

I have no idea which of these cameras is better. I have no idea which camera has better image quality, better sound, better low-light performance, etc. If you have any comparisons, please share!

If I could, I'd buy all of the and do thorough reviews under the same conditions, but I'm not rich

I'm looking to buy a small camcorder for under 500 dollars, but size is a big issue, too. I think the SVP is the thinnest model you can buy.

Does anyone have sample footage from ANY of these cameras?

I'm especially interested in the SVP T-100, at only 23mm thick, I wonder how it performs.

Not much info on some of these models...
Fishy did a review of the DigiLife, but I don't know of any other information, especially for that Sony.....

maybe the Digilife DV1080HD or the DXG-569V are better than the Aiptek GVS.
who knows?

i'm pretty sure the Xacti HD800 is superior, but also costs a ton more.

there is no footage from the Xacti HD100 or Sony HDR-TG1, so who knows.
I'm sure the sony is way too expensive.
Also, the HD100 is 200 bucks and doesn't do 60fps, so the GVS is better.

still.....


Digilife DV1080HD or DXG-569V or SCP T-100.... all could be better than the GVS, but there's no raw footage anywhere!!!

Depends what you mean by 'raw footage'. Fishycomics has footage from several HD pocket cameras available so I'd search his stuff first.

The problem I've found as an amateur is being able to edit and upload footage while maintaining original image quality. If have the DigiLife 1080 but uploading it has meant a drastic loss of image quality although the audio is still good.

Anyway here is my first and only upload so far, as indicated the video is no longer HD

I had the hd800, if you do a search you'll find some video's i posted. In the end it had worse video quality than the hd700.

Greetings Everyone:


The SVP T-100 is not the Top HD Model.

I found out on Ebay that the Top Model for SVP is the SVP T-500.

This camcorder resembles the Sanyo HD100, but the HD 100 is only 1280 X 720

Here are some features about it and a picture:

  • [align=left]HD High Definition 1080P (1440 X 1080) [/align][/*]
  • [align=left] [align=left]Max. Resolution up to 7.7 MP [/align][/align][/*]
  • [align=left]5 Mega Pixel CMOS [/align][/*]
  • [align=left]20X Zooming Power[/align][/*]
  • [align=left]2.5" High Resolution LTPS LCD[/align][/*]
  • [align=left]H.264 video compression[/align][/*]
  • [align=left]Digital Voice Recorder[/align][/*]
  • [align=left]Removable Disk [/align][/*]
  • [align=left]Support TV-Out with Audi[/align][/*]

Regards Robert

Actually Rob, the HD100 is 1440x1080p and from that picture and specs, I am willing to bet this is just another identical clone like the Hitachi DZ-HV564

They also have it on amazon.com for about the same price as the HD100.

Good on you. I was just thinking we need a forum for top (best) models. But people might argue too much, so a list of the best would be good.

As far as size, we can wear cargo pants .
