Videomaker Magazine was released it's Annual Camcorders Buyers Guide.
The Guide is is a single-page PDF document (13" x 22") that is essentially a chart/grid with details on the different camcorder models they reviewed.
The chart is broken down by camcorder manufacturer and then lists the model of each camcorder corresponding to 30 different criteria, which are mostly technical specifications like the zoom ratio, recording format, connectors and other valuable information.
I think the chart - while containing very helpful information - may be daunting to most casual videographers, unless you are comfortable with video technology lingo. The Buyers Guide (chart) is a great place to get some basic information on the available camcorder models. I also recommend checking the reviews at CamcorderInfo.com; In addition to specific reviews on a number of current camcorder models, they have a rating system with points based on a number of criteria.
I always recommend visit a retailer to get my hands on the specific model/s I was interested in to get a first-hand experience with the camcorder I am interested in. And the best possible scenario is if you have a friend or colleague who has direct experience with a particular camera/camcorder - you'll have feedback that may be valuable in your purchase decision.
