A guide to buying a digital movie camera

These days, camcorder cameras are getting smaller and more varied. From the bulky Hi-8 to small HD camcorders, consumers have the greatest freedom to choose from a wide array of digital recorders. Gone are the analogue captures and photographic printers, here comes HD camcorders. With this greater selection, it is easy to get lost and confused on which one to buy. This article will help you to choose which best suits your need and lifestyle.

The SD and the HD video camera

First, there are standard definition (SD) video cameras and there are high definition (HD) video cams. Today, HD video cams cost almost the same as SD cams a few years back, so going high definition is almost an easy choice for most camera buyers. HD digital video is not joking when it says crystal-clear imagery: most entry-level HD cameras produce sharp and vivid pictures on TV. Compared to SD camera videos, HD videos are crisp anywhere you play them. Thus, if you are planning on viewing your videos on a large screen, opt for HD video cameras. If not, and you just need to play your videos on a small computer screen, choose the SD video cam. Aside from costing much less, the video it records isn’t so big when it comes to file size, so it wouldn’t be too taxing for a slower computer.

Storage

Storage Aside from the video quality, you must also decide on what type of video storage your camera will have. Newer digital video cams use hard drives to store your footage. There are also memory card slots for more storage. Still, there are HD mini DVDs for semi-professional videographers. The right choice Mini DV files are harder to transfer and convert but the images are relatively sharp and long-lasting. Sony DV camcorders use their own memory stick brand for storage. Choose your camera well because if you plan on shooting HD digital video, it is wise to choose a camera that allows you to store more files for one continuous take. HD files are large, so they eat up space faster than SD. DVD camcorders are a little tricky to use especially if you are planning on editing your video. Transferring and converting files from DVD are meticulous compared to plug and play hard drives. DVD cams are best for immediate TV viewing.
Final word Lastly, if you do not need crystal clear videos, there are a lot of digital snapshot cameras with video recording capability. Kodak cameras, Jessops cameras, Canon and Sony digital cams mostly can record videos. Many bloggers use them for easy file transfer and hassle-free internet uploads.
