When it comes to choosing the best camcorder, it becomes really difficult as there are countless options. Every day a new model or a new brand with excellent features is being launched in the market. So, how do you select the best camcorder?
In my view, it is always better to first look at the brand name. Even though there are many brands, you need to look for a brand that has years of experience in providing quality cameras with excellent customer service.
For the last few years, Sony has been dominating the market with high-quality camcorders. They are offering various models at different price range. Sony camcorder offers desirable features at an affordable price. Whether you are a professional or an amateur, it is easy to use the Sony camcorder and takes awesome videos.
Sony, who entered the HD camcorder market late, has introduced various models in the last couple of years. One of the top models is the “Sony Handycam FDR – AX 100/B”. The easy to use model is sleek in design and offers high-quality videos. The ZEISS lens is smooth and turns quite easily. It has a 14.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and a 3.5 inch LCD touch screen. The Sony brand is known for giving not only high-quality videos but also excellent quality audio. All this makes Sony occupy the top most position in my list of best camcorder manufacturers.
This company has launched various entry level models as well as high-end models in the last few years. The main advantage of Canon camcorders is that they offer attractive features at a comparatively lower price than Sony. One of their most attractive models is the Canon Vixia HFG10. It has the ability to shoot 1080 HD videos and has 10X optical zoom. The 2.37 megapixel CMOS sensor and the 3.5 inch LCD view screen makes it an attractive model especially for people like me who are just entering the world of high-end camcorders.
At number three is Panasonic. One of the pioneers in the market, Panasonic has been delivering quality camcorders for many years now. The models offered by Panasonic has the latest features like built-in Wi-Fi, 5.1 channels zoom, extendable memory, and 3D conversion lens and gun microphones. Panasonic HC-X920 Digital camcorder is one of the top selling models from Panasonic.
If you are planning to buy a new camcorder, my suggestion is to go for a brand that delivers high-quality performance. All the 3 brands mentioned here are known for good quality products and provide excellent after sales service.
