Buying a digital camcorder can be difficult task as it always has been with other electronic gadgets. Just like a laptop in which you like to see the latest features like high processing speed, huge storage capacity, sleek design, an eye-catching façade and many others that you consider for your satisfaction. The same is the case with a camcorder. Though it’s quite different from laptop but there are certain features that resemble to those found in a laptop.
For camcorders, the first basic feature to be present in them is their high quality video recording capability. A digital camcorder with a high resolution lens (often above 12 megapixels) is called a good one as such a recording device records video with high quality. The storage capacity of a camcorder is no doubt extremely important. The larger the storage capacity, the longer the videos recorded will be. Like other electronic gadgets such as digital cameras, digital camcorders also have two types of memories: the built-in memory and the extendible memory. The built-in memory of this electronic gadget varies from one model to another. It’s usually ranges from a few megabytes to a few gigabytes. This inadequacy can be trounced by using a large extendible memory. The extendible memory is in the form of a micro SD card that can be inserted into the camcorder and removed as and when required. Micro SD cards are available with a capacity up to 40GB which is pretty enough to record for more than two consecutive days.
Every new camcorder is now designed considering its attachment with a computer so that the videos may be transferred to the computer for editing and storage purposes.
There is USB connector available with every new digital camcorder so that it may be connected to every computer. All new camcorders are equipped with a plug and play facility so that there won’t be any need to install the driver to transfer videos to and from the digital camcorder. This feature makes the use of this handy gadget easy to a great extent.
Companies are striving to design camcorders which are the friendliest for the users. The issue is that how many buttons should be there to use all the functions of the digital camcorder. Some people prefer to use a separate button for every option but this leads to hefty designs. A few buttons make the use of digital camcorders a bit difficult just like typing an sms on the mobile phone that lacks a QWERTY layout and one has to press the same button again and again to get what one wants. New models of digital camcorders have limited buttons as they make their use easier.
Another feature of best digital camcorders is their battery timing. Digital camcorder with three hours or more battery timing is considered to be the best. Moreover, the batteries take thirty to fifty minutes to get completely charged. Camcorders are charged like other ordinary electronic appliances such as laptop and mobile phones with the help of a power adapter.
