With a maximum memory card size of 32 gigabytes, the Coby CAM5002 has a relatively standard maximum memory card size compared to most of the other comparable spec video cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the CAM5002.

We compared this camcorder to all the other 32GB maximum memory card size camcorders and we think because of it's better review score, the Contour+ ($68.32), and the ContourRoam both from Contour Design or the easypix Challenge Action is also worth considering.

If this video camera maximum memory card size is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Toshiba Camileo BW10 ($54.95) (64GB and higher rated), the Panasonic HDC-Z10000E (64GB and higher rated), or the Rollei Movieline Live 100 (64GB and higher rated).
