Whereas before camcorders were bulky devices that use video tapes to record images, the latest models are compact-sized, using recordable DVDs or a flash memories. Not only can you take still pictures, you can also film important events and family activities.

What makes the newer models of camcorders “must haves” is that they eliminate factors that would result in poor picture or sound quality. Camcorders come with special sensors that prevent blurring as a result of sudden hand movements, as well as automatically make the necessary lens adjustments for lighting. Some devices reduce noise, so that the sound quality is clear.
