A digital camcorder is basically a portable device that can record both images and audio. It is the same as an analog camcorder except the images aren't stored on a tape. The picture and sound is recorded to a memory card or onto another storage device, such as a CD, DVD, or computer.
Digital camcorders are available in various sizes and some of them are small enough to fit into the palm of your hand. Digital recorders are gaining in popularity as they are going up in quality and down in price. They can also store more images than analog models. In addition, most computers can be used for digital editing if you have the right software installed and most cameras come with software.
Underwater camcorder equipment is also available so you can take your video camera with you while in the water. Digital cameras also come in various recording formats, shapes and styles. They can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand.
