Camcorder, movie camera, SLR camera - proshop.fi has it all.
Today, you can record video on most devices. A camcorder is not just one thing. There is a classic camcorder for private and professional use, action cams, dash cams and 360 degree cameras. If you would like to film, you can also use your digital camera or your smartphone.
When you try to select a camera, it is a good idea to read a review or comparison online. The number of megapixels does not tell you how good a camera you get and full HD resolution can also mean different things. If you plan on using the zoom feature on your camcorder, be sure to look at the optical zoom function. The total zoom number is usually a mix of optical and digital zoom.
If you choose a full HD or 4K resolution camera from Sony, Canon or Panasonic, you are sure to get a quality product. Alternatively, you can also choose to buy a SLR to record on, as it often offers more options.
Action cams are good to have when you travel. Most major brands like GoPro, Sony and Garmin have an action cam. Some models are waterproof, have built-in GPS or display. GoPro has dominated the market since its inception and makes some really good products. The range of accessories for the different action cameras is very large, especially if you have chosen a GoPro camera. You can mount your camera on everything from cars and helmets to animals or you can bring it under the water with a waterproof case.
If you are looking for a dash cam for the car, it is important to find a model with at least 30 FPS, HD or Full HD resolution and the ability to use a memory card. A dash cam is good to have if you are in an accident and there is an insurance issue. Some models have a built-in display and the ability to communicate with a smartphone or tablet. The biggest brands within dash cams are BlackVue, Garmin, Transcend and Asus.
It is a good idea to buy a memory card, a bag and maybe a stand for your new camcorder. When it comes to SD cards, it is a good idea, as a guiding minimum, to choose a class 10 memory card for your camcorder (the slow SD cards may not be able to keep up).
