Once upon a time, video cameras were a very expensive investment; especially if you wanted a high-definition model. These days, you can snap up a Full HD camcorder for under $200. Naturally, these budget models lack the advanced features and imaging capabilites of their premium stable mates, but they remain capable of taking great looking video. They are also a lot more beginner-friendly. In no particular order, here are the Top 10 budget-level camcorders currently available on store shelves. All models are under $300 and some even come from leading brands like Sony and Panasonic.
10 / 10
The Flip UltraHD is a better performer than the MinoHD and we prefer it, thanks to its doubled storage capacity, sharper-coloured footage, better zoom, user-replaceable battery and HDMI-out port.
