What are your buying points when it comes to purchasing a new Camcorder? When I ask this to myself, it’s a hard question, so I wanted to post this and see what other have to say.

I personally feel it’s all related to the purpose or goal of buying a camcorder in the first place. Basically, what are you trying to achieve with this camera? Do you want a good all-purpose camcorder, are you looking for something that produces professional quality video, are you looking for something easy to use, etc?

These goals all have different buying points related to them. Buying points could be, but definitely not limited to, size, weight, brand, HD/SD, resolution, image stabilization, zoom, options, ease of use, compatibility with hardware/software, etc.

I think others can greatly benefit if people would comment on this post about their recent camcorder purchases. Please add the following

  1. What was the intent for buying the camcorder (the purpose/goal)
  2. What was the camera you bought
  3. What were the buying points for you picking up this particular camera

I’m looking foward to what you have to say!

    I’ll start this off.

    1. What was the intent for buying the camcorder (the purpose/goal)?
    I wanted a camera that was extremely easy to use, easy enough for any family member to pick up and use immediately. I also wanted something that was easy to carry. I did NOT want a camera bag, etc.

    2. What was the camera you bought?
    I bought the Flip Video Mino

    3. What were the buying points for you picking up this particular camera?
    The price was very affordable. It was extremely compact. I could carry it in my pocket without a problem. No interface cables or power cables to haul around. Very easy to use.
