Selecting a Pocket Camcorder

The internet and social media have been very instrumental in the widespread popularity of internet video sharing and web videos. Finding a pocket camcorder that supports web video is not difficult but there because there are different price points and features, it can become too easy to overlook the camera capabilities of a mobile phone in favour of a pocket camcorder or the other way round, overlooking the uniqueness of a pocket camcorders over a mobile phone.

It is possible to find a pocket camcorder that can offer you a lot of features that a mobile phone cannot. It all depends on what your main purpose of using the pocket camcorder is for. For most consumers, it is for recording vacations, random inspirational moments, sight-seeing and other social activities as well as for work related capable of shooting video for journalism, news and reviews. 

Todays’ pocket camcorders are very light weight and some are about the size of a packet of cigarettes while being extremely versatile. Most pocket digital camcorders are about 2.5”inches by 4.5” inches, anything that is bigger this can be bulky and won’t fit into the average pocket which means it will not be a pocket camcorder. 

Another thing is the pocket camcorder’s expandability, most pocket camcorders are able to record up to 1 hour of High-definition (HD) but a real bonus is to find a camcorder that can allows for memory expansion. Pocket camcorders like the Sony bloggie series come with two memory card slots. The decision is ultimately down to the usage and function.

The next deal breaker would be the camcorders battery and whether it is rechargeable, some camera makers’ pocket camcorders come with removable rechargeable batteries which are great for those long trips where a power plug may be scarce for a bit. This enables users to buy additional batteries to use with the pocket camcorder.
The screen size of the camcorder is also important, a lot of pocket camcorders have a viewing screen size of about 2”, some have larger screens with sizes going up to 3” for touch based models. 

Two often overlooked extras are the ease of use and output connectivity, if recording in High Definition (HD), the pocket camcorder should at least support HD output via either an HDMI port of another connection port. Some pocket camcorders come with easy to use software packages, the Flip Mino series comes with in-built software that works on multiple OS systems. Some pocket camcorders can even load and reformat video for web uploading.

If you will use your pocket camcorder for web videos this feature alone can be the deal breaker. Making sure that the camcorder you are buying fits your usage list is very important and although most consider pocket camcorders to be low risk items, there is no way to replace recorded videos once it has been recorded and memories are all you have left. Making the right choice the first time around is always the best choice.
