Getting from Point A to Point B. For most people, that’s not much of a challenge.

Summer is almost here! Whether you’re interested in shooting first person video from the front of your surfboard, or maybe a friend’s wedding, or even a feature film, here’s the rundown of the latest and greatest camcorders for summer 2010. From shoot and shares to the latest ENG alternatives, there’s something here for everyone.
Intruders have entered the world of video. They're small, they're stealthy, and they offer the biggest bang for the buck since the Alaska Purchase. We're talking, of course, about digital SLRs—specifically those that shoot high-definition, progressive video. These hybrid interlopers, called VSLRs (or HDSLRs), are wielding their swollen sensors and 35mm optics like digital clubs over the heads of prosumer video enthusiasts. Each new model seems to pry another finger loose from the once-secure grip of affordable HD camcorders.
Though inexpensive flash memory camcorders have been snapped up by consumers in droves in recent years, even casual users recognize their severe limitations. Typically, these devices offer a lackluster lens, provide only digital zoom, and perform poorly in dim light or an unsteady hand. Manual controls, touch screens, and GPS simply aren't included in the equipment. All this helps explain why cameras that record to tape or hard disks continue to be preferred by home video enthusiasts.
