By Anne Thomas

With your trusty digital video camera by your side you can capture all those special moments, such as your child’s first steps, your birthday or wedding, or your vacation with family and friends etc.

There are innumerable models and brands available in the market for the digital cameras. Though you might find it a little bit baffling about which to choose, you must buy it according to your needs and the features you need and the budget you can afford.

The most important thing to consider is the format in which your videos will be stored, as the video format determines the video quality. Digital 8 otherwise called D8, Mini-DV, DVD and HDD are the main types of video format that digital cameras offer. Both D8 and Mini-DV are tape-based formats, with the Mini-DV currently offering the highest quality video format to consumers. The DVD format allows direct video recording onto a digital disk, while the HDD type uses internal hard drives where the video is recorded. As the tape format is slowly being phased out by major manufacturers, it is a good idea to invest in disk or hard drive based digital video cameras.

The Digital video cameras consist of CCD or charged coupled device. You also get camera with a 3-CCD or 1- CCD features. While the cameras that have 1-CCD are poor quality videos, the 3- CCD cameras on the other hand give out better quality videos. Even the professionals use a 3CCD technology for better results but are a little bit more expensive.

The camcorder and its optical zoom feature usually vary from 10X-20X. Though it depends on how near the subject is needed. The facility of still photography can be found in various digital video cameras at different resolutions, while some camcorders give both the still and the video facility. Digital camcorders also have an in-built flash to compensate for low-light, but some cameras are provided with the ‘night shot’ facility. Other options are the external flashlights, external storage systems attached to the camcorder and the external microphones.

Camcorders with longer battery strength is also recommended. Digital video cameras have battery life ranging from 4 to 8 hours of continuous shooting. However, using the zoom or any external devices reduce the battery strength.

Today’s cameras come loaded with the editing software. Chances are you may not like the one that is provided, but you can buy pricey editing software from a reputable brand or from Abode.
