Digital Camcorders for When Regular Cameras Aren't Enough 

Do you like shooting short movies or vlogs, and do you feel as if the high-quality video from your phone isn't enough? Maybe you just want to release your inner Spielberg. If any of these points are true, then you definitely need to get some good equipment. If you are hesitant about choosing between a digital camcorder or digital camera that shoots video, we'll give you a few good reasons why you should pick the camcorder.

Digital Camcorders vs Cameras

Digital Camcorders

They're primarily designed for shooting video and usually have a standard built-in lens that has up to a 30x optical zoom. It can typically reach up to 60x with digital fine-tuning. Camcorders also have a built-in optical stabiliser for a better picture quality and a full-tilt articulated screen.

Digital Cameras

Cameras are designed for taking pictures. There are both mirrorless and mirrored (DSLR) models. The advantage of digital cameras is that even the cheaper models have interchangeable lenses. Some digital mirrorless cameras are capable of competing with camcorders in terms of performance, while only the most expensive DSLR cameras can perform up to this level.

Five Reasons Why to Use Digital Camcorders

1. They Are Still the Best

Digital camcorders work better when it comes to shooting videos. Although digital cameras are great and can create beautiful footage, you usually need to invest in plenty of additional accessories. Since camcorders are made solely for shooting videos, they have many efficient features. Unlike many digital cameras, you can easily record 4K video from a camcorder.

2. Stabilised Sensor

A stabilised sensor is a tremendous advantage when creating a high-quality video. There's no need to buy expensive stabilising equipment or to stabilise the video in post-production. Today, even the cheapest camcorders have basic image stabilisers, which can't be said for all DSLRs or mobile phones. The best stabilisers are usually found in action camcorders.

3. You Won't Be Able to Put It

Digital camcorders are customised for shooting videos just as cameras have better features for taking photos. Even the best digital cameras from Sony and Panasonic will never be as comfortable as a regular camcorder. Usually, the design of the buttons fit perfectly in hand, and the articulated tilt screen allows you to view the video image from any angle. 

4. The Sound!

We can find a headphone and mic jack on almost every type of equipment, but digital cameras don't process the same sound quality as camcorders. Audio quality is cleaner when recorded on a camcorder mic and requires much less work in post-production.

5. Zoooom (up to 60x zoom)

Thanks to zoom lenses, which are standard in today's camcorders, you won't have to carry around dozens of additonal lenses. Unlike traditional digital cameras, camcorders have smaller chips that allow a closer look - normally a 30x zoom. You will always be able to capture everything you need, and the important moments will no longer slip away!
