Camcorder HQ has announced the year's top ranked video cameras, recognizing seven models for their quality and performance. The Editor's Choice awards were given out to the top ranked cameras in their respective categories.
“Imaging technology has seen a surge in more advanced sensors offering video quality like we haven't seen before,” said DCHQ Managing Editor, Hillary Grigonis. “Choosing the best camcorders was a very difficult choice this year, but the awards go to companies that are on the forefront of developing new technology for better imaging, offering consumers the most quality for the price.”
CHQ reviews camcorders throughout the year and just recently finalized their scores for the top 2014 models. The awards are broken down by both category and price.
