Best cheap camcorders for Christmas

The best digital video camcorder deals under $300 from Sony, Panasonic, Kodak and more

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.

Millennius Memmoir

There's plenty to like about the Millennius Memmoir HD camcorder. Although it stumbles in some areas, the $429 price tag more than makes up for any shortcomings. If you're shopping on a budget and require HD video, this is probably the best option on the market.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
