Veho MUVI HD NPNG

Aiming for the mark between top-end and more wallet-friendly offerings Veho's MUVI HD manages to offer some big features. Beyond full HD video, 8-megapixel photos, and a color viewfinder-display, its case is waterproof down to an impressive 200 feet and a wireless remote control is included. The camera itself is a little bigger than some of the others on this list – about the size of a deck of cards – but if you want an all-around player, the MUVI HD performs. Grab the NPNG edition, which offers more detailed video thanks to improved firmware. [$259; veho-uk.com]
