Top 10 stylish pocket camcorders from just £50

From SD to 1080p, there's one for any budget

Aiptek Z500 PLUS

This camera is one of the most comfortable to use here, but is overpriced. It sits well in the hand, features intuitive menus and snaps on as soon as you open the screen. The HD 1080p picture is good, with bright colours, although it is slow to focus. However, a wealth of features mean that a decent picture is always achievable. For £187, you might want to look at something that offers a bit more value for money.
