Camcorders and Action cams

Whether you’re an aspiring filmmaker, video blogger, action fanatic or just want to capture great moments with family and friends – a camcorder will be perfect for your needs.

Camcorders provide far higher film quality than videos shot on a smartphone or compact camera. Their larger sensors capture more detail, while built-in image stabilisation keeps movies smooth and sharply focused. Sounds are crisp and clear with the integrated microphone.

Watch your movies easily on a TV screen using your camcorder’s HDMI port, or look for models with built-in WiFi to share videos wirelessly.

Action camcorders are made for sportspeople, daring explorers and outdoor enthusiasts. They offer waterproofing and shock-proofing among other tough features, allowing you to film the action whilst you’re experiencing it. Some are compatible with adapters that allow you to strap or mount the camcorder to virtually anything, so you can set your creativity free and give everyone a first-person perspective on your exploits.

Sound Quality

Camcorders feature larger, higher-quality built-in microphones than mobile phones or compact cameras, making them a better choice for real video recording.

Enjoy clearer, more defined sounds across a wider range of volumes, making a digital camcorder the sensible choice for filming special events like weddings, children’s parties or a friend’s gig. Look out for camcorders featuring external microphone jacks so that you can use a dedicated microphone to record audio with more control, giving your videos even more impact and clarity.

If you like to edit your videos after shooting, the camcorder records audio onto its own track so that you can separate the audio and video to create more professional-looking and sounding home movies.
