Camcorder Shopping Guide

Things to consider when you buy a camcorder

Size and Shape: Choose a camcorder that fits in your hands and comfortable to use. Smaller means more expensive or less feature than larger models with same price. 

Video Format: Besides the tape size, it actually make difference on both image quality and copy qualities. In terms of video/audio quality, digital video (DV, Digital8, or Mini DV) formats are the best, Hi8 and SVHS-C are the next and 8mm, VHS, and VHS-C are the worst. You can always make copies of digital videos without any loss, while other format videos will lose quality with each copy you make.

MPEG movie mode: This will come handy if you want to share your videos quickly online.

Optical Zoom: Mostly you won't use the digital zoom at all because it affects the the video quality greatly. so don't be misled by the large digital zoom numbers. Optical Zoom is the one you should check. 10x is ok and 20x is good.

Image Stablization: It is very useful in most situations, especially for non-professional users. But make sure it is optical image stablization. Again, digital ones affect the video quality.

Photo: Most camcorders can take photoes too. But if you are going to use it as a real digital camera, make sure 1) the photoes are on a flash memory card, not on tape; 2)Size is adequate for printing, not just for e-mailing. 

LCD size: The bigger, the better. 2.5" is normal. Most LCDs can swivel.

Low light/Dark performance: If you need this kind of feature, look for smaller minimum illumination numbers. Camcorders with NightShot Infrared System can capture video in complete darkness.

USB/Firewire connection: How to connect it with computer (digital camcorders only)? Usually firewire is better for video transfer.
