The holiday buying season is one of the most popular times for people to either buy a new digital video camera or replace their current camcorder for a new digital video model. Choosing something that both fits your budget and your needs can be a tricky process because the options marketed at the store aren’t the options you should necessarily pay attention to. Of course, I think any new camera owner should invest in a copy of my book, Easy Digital Home Movies, which is almost always available at Barnes & Noble or Borders (and online, of course). If you don’t need a book, it’s still a good idea to understand which features make a difference in your digital video experience and which ones are simply fluff. Camcorder Info offers a solid list of 10 questions to ask when buying a camcorder. Couple those questions with the free PDF download on Digital Camcorder Basics available on the Easy Digital Home Movies page and you’re armed with everything you need to know before taking the plunge into the world of digital video.
