Sony HDR-XR550 Full HD camcorder

 

A Full HD Sony camcorder with 240GB hard drive and GPS functionality

Stellar video performance, plenty of storage space for recordings, doesn't skimp on manual features

Expensive, almost identical to the previous model

The Sony HDR-XR550 is a feature-packed Full HD camcorder with plenty of advanced tools and features. Unfortunately, most consumers will find its price tag to be too steep.

Sony HDR-XR550 review

 

If you've got big-screen dreams this high-def cam has a pro-friendly wideangle lens, manual controls and 12MP stills. But can it trump its Canon rival?

Huge storage, great stills and a top-notch touchscreen, but not quite picture perfect
