    Canon's 2009 range of HD and Flash-based camcorders come with a new brand name – LEGRIA. What it means or what it stands for is, for now, enigmatic but in the shape of the HF S10 it represents a high-def camcorder with imaging power that'll blow your socks off.

    In the frenzy to develop camcorders that are even smaller, more compact and cheaper than ever before, manufacturers sometimes lose sight of the kind of features that consumers love. Fortunately Canon is helping to redress the balance with the introduction of the MVX460 - a camcorder that succeeds with a selection of old-fashioned but essential functions.

    This cam captures full HD footage to a 40GB hard drive and can store up to 5hr 30min of footage at maximum resolution. At £800, it's certainly more expensive, but then it offers so much more, as we'll find out...

    Not only is it a true widescreen high-definition camcorder but it also packs a 40GB hard disk – good for around five and a half hours of top-quality footage.

    DVD camcorders often surprise us. We have never made any secret of the fact that we think the format has some issues that are yet to be resolved, yet the cams themselves have proved popular with the buying public and have on several occasions managed to confound our expectations with their quality.

    Whether it be capturing stills or moving pictures, Canon has always been a manufacturer that’s synonymous with high quality images. While renowned as the producer of the most widely respected semi-professional camcorder available, the awesome XL1, the company has never quite managed to replicate its high-end success in the mass market.

    The HR10 represents Canon's third dip into the waters of high-definition video; although it's still something of a departure from what has gone before from this photographic specialist.

    While HD camcorders stay north of £500 and DVD models offer poor compressed images and other inconveniences for Mac owners, the MiniDV tape format has life left in it. Canon makes good, cheap, reliable MiniDV camcorders and the MD160 continues to help that reputation along.

    As the variety of camcorder formats grows ever bigger, the budget-conscious videomaker finds himself with a veritable treasure trove of products from which to choose. Mini DV tape appears to be on the way out...

    If you're looking for great value high definition without sacrificing functionality, Canon's HV20 is a great place to start. It combines comprehensive connectivity with fantastic user-friendliness and superb playback quality

    Like all consumer DVD camcorders, the Canon DC230 has been designed for first-timers who have neither the time nor the inclination to mess around with the more complex functions and features associated with home video camcorders

    Sony may have had the consumer HDV market to itself for a few of years, but Canon is starting to show an interest. The HV10 represents its first dip in the sub- £1,000 market and it goes head-to- head with Sony's HDR-HC3
