How to Choose Your Camcorder

In this article, I will teach you how to select the right camcorder.

Purpose. The first thing that you should consider is how you are going to use it.

  • Are you going to use it for home movies?
  • Or for independent films?
  • Is it for video production or you will just use it to post movies online? That will…Affect your decision making.

Price. This will greatly influence your decision making. There are varieties of camcorder with a price range from three hundred to a thousand dollars or more. It is sometimes too expensive too buy one. There are HD camcorders that are small and handy. That you can use for other network quality shows or for Discovery shows and small things. There will surely be more. In the price range of twelve hundred dollar, the camera offers a lot of great features, the major difference between the cheap and expensive ones are the size and lenses. You shall see. If we both open the lens cap of various kinds of camcorders, you will realize the difference. The glass determines the camera. It is an old term for photography. The larger the lenses, the better the lenses are. Better optics and better ground determine the price of your camera. You can go both for charge coupling device and C-moss processors as it is the two most popular. You may want to have at least three chip camera if you want to have a rich picture quality. The three chip have individual pick up chip such as R for red, G for green and B for blue. RGb are responsible for the creation of video signals. You will definitely have a good quality picture as there are dedicated chip on to each one of them. Today, there are new types of cameras and these are mostly digital which means that it will include a stable card or a hard drive inside. In this case, it is usually a mini DV. If you only want to use it for home movies then you should go for DVD burning one. This is where you will place your mini DVD into the cam then you take it out. If you’re considering editing, or any post-production, you should go for a stable flash drive or a mini DV where you can make an archive. Make sure to search and read different reviews. I hope that this will help you a lot.

Happy shooting with your chosen cam!
