Video

Full HD

Full HD

The GZ-R310 is Full HD. Most of the other small total megapixels video cameras that have been around for more than two years also are Full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative Full HD video cameras currently available including because of their better review scores, the Canon Legria HF R66 (£269.99), or the Panasonic HC-V550 (£299.99).
