Part 2. FAQs about Camcorders

Q1. What is the difference between a Camera and a camcorder?

ANS: Present day high-end camera comes loaded with features that allow capturing good quality images as well as videos and thus the line of difference between the two has become very thin. Still, there are a few features that make camcorder different from the camera. Video quality is the first difference between the two; camcorders definitely support a better quality of video recording as it is its forte. Secondly, lens of both the devices differ as camcorders generally have better and robust zoom enabled lens. The internal microphones used on camcorders are of better quality as compared to the camera. The ergonomics, video control and media options are some other areas which differentiate between the two.

Q2. Factors to consider while selecting a camcorder

ANS: There are different types of camcorders available in the market and selecting the one that best suits your requirements is very important to get the best videos recorded. The type of recording, recording hours, the quality needed, and the handling are some of the features that will help you to decide upon the perfect device. If you are looking for a camcorder to record special occasion or a party, HD camcorder with automatic/manual modes (depending upon your ease of use), and good zoom option will be a good choice. For your vacations, you can settle for a little sturdy and compact device that is easy to handle on move. For your little teenager who is all set to explore his skills, pocket camcorders will prove to be a great choice. For recording sports and action events, a camera with high optical zoom must be preferred. Thus depending upon the purpose and features needed, you can decide upon a camera.

Q3. What makes hard drive camcorders different from flash memory camcorders?

ANS: Hard Drive camcorders are not very common these days. These types of camcorders have fast moving disks with magnetic surfaces in order to write and rewrite data. Presently flash memory camcorders are generally used as they allow the device size to be small and lightweight. These camcorders use microchips that have memory cells that are erased in one flash or action. These camcorders are fast when it comes to recording and accessing the media.

Q4. What's the difference between digital zoom and optical zoom?

ANS: The two most common words that you will encounter while dealing with camcorders is optical zoom, and digital zoom, out of which former holds more importance. The number of optical zoom refers to the ratio of the zoom lens in the camcorder while the digital zoom refers to the technique where image centre is enlarged and thus boost the zoom ratio of the device. Thus when referring to digital zoom, quality can be hampered with jerky videos. Optical zoom is thus more important for capturing quality videos.

Q5. What is the best way of using the zoom lens in camcorders?

ANS: Manual zooming is the best way as it not only saves time but also the power of your battery. Thus whenever possible, opt for manual zooming between the shots and then you can edit them from the final list. When you need to zoom on a particular subject, zoom it before you take the shot, then set and lock the focus, and finally zoom out to the start. Using this technique, your subject will remain in the focus through entire shot.
