How to choose the best camcorder?

Consider Image Quality

Image quality is the soul of a camcorder, when consider about the image quality, the first thing in mind is always the sensor resolution. The first line in our table is the optical sensor size, we set the standard sensor size as 1/4”, if the sensor is bigger than 1/4” (1/2, 1/3), that means this sensor would be easier to capture more light, which may lead to a greater image quality. And you may find out the Panasonic will present the 3CMOS sensor (like Panasonic HC-X900), this 3CMOS camcorder is actually has 3 sensors, but that is not say to triple the sensor size, the actual 3CMOS function is to make the video more vivid, so if you like a brighter image, the 3CMOS camcorder may be a good choice. But Panasonic is the only manufacturer to produce the 3COMS camcorder, so if you are a big fan of Canon or Sony, this technique will not exist in their products.

For image quality, the size and quality of the lens matters and so does image stabilization features. All of our best camcorders offer image stabilization features. With this function, the camcorder will correct the flaws in the image due to the shaking during recording.

Consider Zoom

Nowadays, the prodocts all will present two kinds of zoom to the customers: optical zoom and digital zoom. Our suggestion is: Forget about digital zoom! This kind of zoom is only a placebo to the customer, the only thing that digital zoom does is the magnifying your image not a actually zooms in an object. So with a broader optical zoom range, your camcorder can easily capture clear images about things remote.

Consider Display and Controls

When you are shooting, the camcorder should be easy to handle and control. So a touch screen is very important in controls, while the LCD screen size to bigger than 3 inches will be a plus. And we recommend when choosing the camcorder, you can take the one outside the shop, to see if the display is clear enough under the daylight. And also the ergonomic design of the camcorder will depend on your personal preferences, so when decide which one will be the best , you can just hold one to feel it.

Consider Storage and other features

There are some kinds of storage type in our Best camcorder, one is to storage in SD cards the other is the Hard Disks. The Hard disc drive camcorder has an internal hard disc drive to store videos. And they also allow use of external memory cards for even more storage. The Flash ones are shooting straight to memory cards, just like the digital camera. The features we recommend in our reviews most is the Wi-Fi connectivity, the multi-transfer between different mobile devices will extremely amplified your fun with shooting. And also the Wifi transfer will also free you from numbers of wires.
