Those amateur pornographers over at CamcorderInfo really know what they're talking about when it comes to video recording, which is why their pics for Camcorder of the year have a good deal of weight behind it. This year they select the Canon HV20 as both the Camcorder of the Year and the best under $1000 (it's $900), as well as the three Panasonics for the best under $800, $400 and $300. Wired also picked The HV20 as their winner, but it uses tapes—which might be offensive to some. Head over to CamcorderInfo to see their picks for the price range/feature set you're looking for. Although why they didn't have a category for "most resistant to bodily fluids" is beyond us. [Camcorder Info - Wired]
