What can a camcorder do?

Owning a camcorder might seem redundant in an age when phones, DSLR cameras, tablets and even watches can shoot video. However, the video capability of those devices is usually designed to be an accessory that takes a back seat to other functions. Video quality and ease of use often suffer as a result. Though there are plenty of occasions where it’s appropriate to multitask with one device, having a dedicated tool for shooting video affords quality and convenience. Consider the following advantages to using a camcorder:

Better sound

Nothing ruins the excitement of watching freshly shot footage more quickly than scratchy, muffled audio. Experienced videographers know that sound is just as important as the visuals. Built-in microphones, volume controls and audio inputs provide better control of the full experience — sights, sounds and all.

Longer recording

Even if you have a great seat and your phone in hand, low memory can leave you frantically deleting contacts and photos instead of recording once-in-a-lifetime moments. Avoid the scramble. A camcorder gives you one or more dedicated storage options so your video isn’t fighting for space and battery life with your workout playlist. And since camcorders are designed to record for longer run times, you won’t have to worry about preprogrammed limits or overheating.

Better quality

Footage shot on a phone can look great — especially on a phone. But put that same video on a larger screen, and the image quality suddenly becomes duller and blurrier. Many camcorders offer features such as larger sensors, optical zoom lenses, image stabilization and low-light performance. That means you can enjoy better quality video on more devices, from the phone to the big screen.

Ergonomic design

“Just film the performance,” they said. “It’ll be fun,” they said. Video duty sounds easy enough — until you experience shaky hands, cramped fingers and strained eyes. Phones require awkward finger positioning, and front-heavy DSLR cameras aren’t designed to be held in a static position for longer than a few minutes. Camcorders, on the other hand, are designed to provide comfortable use for extended periods of time, with easy-to-grip edges and straps, mounting options, and convenient access to buttons and controls. You’ll be the envy of all the other parents jockeying for position in the auditorium.

Autofocus

While manual focus can allow for some impressive shots, it can be cumbersome when filming on the fly or shooting everyday activities. Luckily, autofocus lets you be ready to shoot at a moment’s notice. And since the autofocus on camcorders is designed specifically for videos and not photos, you can expect extra smooth focus for that birthday surprise or last-minute performance.
