Your Guide To Buying a Video Camera

By Nicole Blanckenberg

    Video cameras are a great way to relive your memories over and over again, and whether you are looking for something to take on your next family vacation, to take adventuring with you, or just to record a fun day out, there is a video camera out there just perfect for you. With so many camcorders on the market, choosing can be confusing, but we are here to help make deciding easy. This camcorder shopping guide has all the information and tips you need to easily spot which video camera to buy.

    Varying in size and video quality, there are three main camcorder types: standard, pocket, and action video cameras. Deciding between them should be based on what you plan to film and the quality you need it filmed in. Here is a short description of each type of video camera for you to compare:

    Standard Video Cameras: Most standard video cameras offer HD video recording capabilities. With larger image sensors and better built-in microphones, these camcorders are the perfect home video partner. Working in most light conditions and with most including image stabilization, these cameras will help you shoot good quality videos so you can build a library of treasured memories.

    Action Video Cameras: If you are looking to shoot videos during your next adventure, then this is the camera for you. Also known as action cams, they come with a variety of feature options including water, shock, dust, and freeze proofing. Designed for outdoor activities, they are tough and can be strapped to almost anything allowing you to show friends and family just what it was like on your adventure.

    Pocket Video Cameras: These camcorders are compact and portable. Perfectly sized so that you can carry them in your pocket and shoot anytime, anywhere, they are often Wi-Fi enabled with built in apps. These apps allow videos to be sent from your camera to friends and family or posted on social media in real time.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    1. Accessories: Reviewers rate cameras that come with added accessories as better deals. Camera purchases that include accessories like tripods, cases, straps, and bags leave owners more satisfied with their purchases because they feel they are getting excellent value for their money, saving on additional costs.
    2. Battery: Battery life is a big concern for video camera owners, and cameras that offer longer lasting battery power between charges without users having to compromise on resolution are reviewed very well. To confirm that your perspective camcorder’s battery life will be sufficient for your needs, compare the battery life manufacturers state for their camera models.
    3. Build: Owners prefer their lightweight camcorders over their heavier ones! Cameras that are easy to hold and lightweight, whether they are standard handheld or action video cameras, will be easier to use and more convenient to take with you. It will also make sure you never miss a movie moment.
    4. Shooting versatility: Video cameras that perform well, shooting quality footage, in optimal and low light conditions are rated higher than those that don’t. Being able to shoot in varied light conditions will add more versatility to your shooting and leave you more satisfied. If this is a concern of yours, reading the reviews of the top brands will help you to choose a better image model.
    • A video camera’s resolution will indicate the quality of recording. Most camcorders offer HD resolutions of 1280p x 720p or 1920 x 1080p, and anything lower than that may not give you the clarity you would hope for. Professional 4K camcorders offer 3840p by 2160p resolution, which is the ultimate in quality videos.
    • The higher the resolution of the videos recorded by your new camcorder, the more space you will need to record them. It is advisable to get more than one storage device, such as an SD card, so that you can swap out when you haven’t had time to download.
    • Video cameras offer either internal storage or flash memory storage, and choosing a model with adequate storage should be based on the quality of the video you will be shooting and the frequency with which you plan to use your new camcorder. Internal video camera storage ranges between 8 to 96GB, while video cameras supporting flash memory will offer the following card options: memory cards, SD cards, micro SD cards, memory sticks, or memory stick micro cards.
    • Your new camera should offer both an optical and a digital zoom. The optical zoom is the zoom size to be most concerned about. For better video quality, it is advised not to settle for a camcorder with less than a 10x optical zoom, regardless of how high the digital zoom is. A higher optical zoom, which works by moving the lens to zoom into the desired object, will give you good quality close-ups. The digital zoom function enlarges (or magnifies) the picture you see in your viewfinder to provide a close up, but results are often a pixelated (low quality) image.
    • There are a variety of sound options your new video camera could have. For better sound quality, look for a camera with a stereo microphone. For exceptional sound suited for the budding filmmaker in you, camcorders that provide ports to connect external mics will give you that professional edge.
    • A good quality video camera should have built-in image stabilization which increases video quality by preventing minor tremors and shaking from ruining your home movie.
    • A video camera that is fully automatic will adjust color balance, shutter speed, aperture and focus automatically without you having to hassle with settings and is a valuable feature that makes quality shooting easy.
    • Camcorders with 3D capabilities will add a lot of fun to your movie making. This is a great feature for hobby filmmakers wanting to experiment with their craft.
    • For more editing options, look for a video camera that records audio and visual files separately, making individual editing possible and giving you more creative flexibility.
    • Video cameras that have flip-out LCD screens offer users easier playback viewing and will give you the chance to review the video then-and-there.
    • Camcorders with wireless capabilities will enable you to transfer photos and videos to computers or directly to social media, and allow you to backup your videos straight from your camera. With added features, like remote access by mobile apps and quick device communication, these smart video cameras are the next generation of camcorders.
    • Consider buying an external hard drive or dvd burner as an alternative to storing your videos on your computer.
    • Camcorders that include added accessories such as tripods, cases, straps and bags will give you lots more functionality for your money and save you the hassle of buying these items separately.
    • When buying an action camera, consider what features are most important to you. Small size? GPS tracking? A view screen to check your shots before you leave? There are a wide array of options on the market, so make a list of your intended uses and what would be most valuable for shooting, and choose based on those requirements.
    • When choosing a pocket camcorder, choose one that has a memory card slot as this will provide you a lot more storage options. Alternatively, look for a model with an internal memory of at least 8GB.
