The Sell: An HD video camera that excels at night shots—or claims to.

The Test: We were unsure of the video quality of this waterproof, shockproof shooter when we viewed our footage on the touchscreen, but after loading clips onto a computer we were pleasantly surprised. Night shots were merely average, but the 1080p video impressed.

The ­Verdict: Are your home movies shot mainly by your kids at the beach? This is for you. Video Quality: 3. Ease of Use: 4.
