Perhaps, a shoot is more articulate than a click. Sometimes, pictures don't reveal what videos do. A caterpillar moving on a leaf dribbled with water, a sunset moment captured seconds before twilight, waves making that soulful sound every time they reach your ears, or just a horde murmuring and muttering. That's when you smirk in conceit, for you're one of those proud owners of an all-inclusive point and shoot camera for video shooting, that is rich in features, perfect in performance, and a show-stopper in looks! Reviews and critiques is what we have for you here, comprehensively.

Best Point and Shoot Video Cameras: A Review

The best point and shoot cameras offer you up to 1080p of resolution, and hence, have earned the topmost rank in reviews all over the world. What follows below are my picks to kick your shooting experience up a notch. Here it goes.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5
Dig into its manual controls and you won't stop smiling. You know, the first advice as a treat to your hunting spree would be - always look for a camera that has rich manual controls, so that you can control your camera your way. The 10-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 has superb power for a fixed lens camera and is, therefore, ranked numero uno in this review. On a personal note, I've used its Macro Mode which lets you get very close to the object you're shooting. Believe me, I couldn't get my hands off the device thereafter. With its ultra-wide-angle lens with F2.0 aperture, the Panasonic Lumix offers supreme quality video capture and easy to operate manual video controls. Good layout, stylish buttons, and a sturdy built... you have many reasons to have this superb camera in your hands. The price for this video camera as of January 3, 2011 is somewhere around $400.

Canon PowerShot SX210 IS
Perhaps, the biggest challenge is to put this phenomenal video camera down once you've got your hands on it. Canon is world's leading brand when it comes to digital cameras, and the PowerShot SX210 IS is an awesome treat to all budding photographers looking forward to become professionals one day. It's a fun camera with 14x optical zoom range, and boasts over 14.1 megapixel of resolution (that's quite a lot!). What's more, its smart auto Face Detection ability, being capable of identifying up to 35 faces in a single frame, makes it extremely easy for you to shoot videos for long. Motion Detection technology surpasses Image Blur with elegance, and High-Definition movies and Sound render you a killer experience. Believe me, for girls who're in love with Pink, and are colorblind to the rest, Canon PowerShot in Pink looks heart-meltingly beautiful! Grab this video camera for as little as $300.

Sony CyberShot DSC-HX5V
Would you believe if I were to tell you that you could have a GPS-enabled camera for as little as $350? Yes. Sony is known for its world-class camera treatises, and CyberShot series is way ahead in the league of point and shoot video cameras. What's more, its video shooting abilities impressed many technology critics for it owns a digital compass, wireless image and video sharing by means of TransferJet, a 1080i HD video capture, and a 10x optical zoom. You see, you hardly get all these qualities in a video camera so inexpensive. Color accuracy and low-light performance are some of the pros of this offering from the Sony CyberShot series, and you certainly cannot say no to buying this low light point and shoot camera. Try it once, it'll blow your mind!
