Shoot 720P Video and Take 11MP Stills with $150 Genius G-Shot HD520

Pocket camcorders that can record high-definition video have become all the rage, but some of them can be a little pricey. The Genius G-Shot HD520, on the other hand, is quite affordable.

No, it’s not quite the same thing as a Creative Vado HD or a Flip Mino HD. Instead, the Genius G-Shot HD520 takes on the same kind of form factor that you may have encountered with the Sanyo Xacti line of digital camcorders. It has a flip-out 2.5-inch display, making it quite convenient to tote around for spontaneous family movies.

Looking up and down the spec sheet, we find the ability to shoot 720p (MPEG-4/H.264) video, take 11 megapixel stills, and store everything onto your provided SDHC memory card (up to 8GB). There’s also face tracking on here.

Based on my brief experience with Genius products, I wouldn’t expect the world in terms of quality, but you have to remember that the Genius G-Shot HD520 pocket camcorder is just $150. That’s a fair bit cheaper than something similar from the big boys.
