Sub £100 HD camcorder ideas

Hi all,

I am looking to buy a sub £100 camcorder for my brother for his birthday. There seems to be a raft of them out there with no real reviews (apart from amazon related comments). My brother is active but mainly cross country walking with the dog, no extreme sports apart from teh odd bike ride.

Would anyone be able to recommend a camcorder for me? I keep looking at the Easypix WDV5270 Lagoon but have no idea if its any good. All ideas are welcome.

Thanks,
Matt.

Have I put my budget too low or something?

I can only really afford sub £100 but if my brothers Samsung Note 2 (or 3 if thats the newest) has a better camera than camcorders in this range i should probably buy him something else.

Does anyone have any insight?

Thanks again for checking my post.

There seems to be a range of camcorders on Amazon between £50-£100, mostly JVC, Samsung and Canon. On name alone I would suggest either the JVC or the Canon.


Your budget is far too low for a good unit, you should be considering £450-£600.

Thank you Terfyn, I thought i would be able to grab something a little better than his smartphone which isn't condusive to filming for longer than a couple of mins. Appears my intentions may have been more fanciful than good! I will look elsewhere for a present.

Thanks for the reply.
