The CAM5002 has an HDMI port, as do most of the other medium sensor size camcorders that have been available for a similar time to the CAM5002.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with an HDMI port and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon Vixia HF S30, and the Rollei Movieline Live 100 is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Display

The CAM5002 has a built-in display. Most of the other camcorders of this type and age also have a built-in display.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with a built-in display and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony HDR-PJ50, the Olympus LS-20M ($490.07), and the Toshiba Camileo X150 is also worth considering.

This video camera has a CMOS sensor type, which is typical of many video cameras of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The CAM5002 has a greater number of included cables than most camcorders of this type and age. The most frequently found cable included is USB, but this cable included is not found on this video camera. The cables included AV are also found on this camcorder.

Chart Edit

Very Small

The depths of similar spec camcorders that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CAM5002 range from 15mm to 460mm, and the average depth is 100mm. At only 17.78 millimeters, the CAM5002 is fairly small compared to most of the other comparable spec camcorders that came out around the same time as the CAM5002.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Not Full HD

The CAM5002 is not Full HD. Most of the other video cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the CAM5002 do are Full HD.

Video cameras which are Full HD that might be worth considering include the Canon Vixia HF S30, the Panasonic HDC-Z10000E, or the Toshiba Camileo BW10 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The CAM5002 does not have an image stabiliser, unlike most of the other comparable spec video cameras that were launched more than two years ago which have an image stabiliser.

We compared this camcorder to all the other camcorders with an image stabiliser and we think the Canon Vixia HF S30, the Sony HDR-GW66, or the Toshiba Camileo BW10 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

At only 4 times zoom factor, the CAM5002 has a fairly small digital zoom compared to most of the other camcorders of a similar type and age to the CAM5002. Medium sensor size camcorders that were released around the same time as the CAM5002 have digital zooms of between 2x and 1,800x.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4x (digital) camcorders currently available including the HM-TA2, or the HM-TA20 both from Panasonic or the Aiptek PocketDV T220 which has better reviews.

If this video camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Philips CAM150 (5x), or the JVC GC-XA1 ($160.15) (5x) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Like most of the other camcorders of a comparable age and spec to the CAM5002, the CAM5002 does not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have an interchangeable lens to this camcorder and we think the HS900, or the HDC-SD90 both from Panasonic or the Sony HDR-CX200 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Small Screen Size

At only 2 inches, the CAM5002 has a fairly small screen size compared to most of the other medium sensor size camcorders that came out more than two years ago. Across all the similar spec video cameras that were released more than two years ago the screen sizes range from 1.5" to 4".

Camcorders with a larger screen size that might be worth considering include the Aiptek 3D i2 ($149.99) (2.4"), the Bushnell 8MP Trophy Cam ($149.99) (2.4"), or the GE DV1 (2.5") which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Video cameras which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the HDC-SD90, or the HDC-Z10000E both from Panasonic or the Philips CAM150 which is also higher rated.

Average Maximum Memory Card Size

At 32 gigabytes, the CAM5002 has a pretty average maximum memory card size compared to most of the other medium sensor size camcorders that have been on the market for around the same time as the CAM5002.
