Whether you are the next budding Spielberg, someone hoping to make it big on Youtube or simply looking to capture those precious memories, getting out the camcorder is fast becoming more and more popular.
Camcorders, it’s safe to say, have come a long way since those giant, clunky VHS-C devices that people used to lug around in the 70s and 80s. Instead of having huge cameras mounted on your shoulder, recording grainy footage onto clumsy tapes, today’s cameras can record HD quality video, add special effects and fit comfortably in your pocket.
Today, fuelled by the growth of YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, digital camcorders have become increasingly popular. It has never been easier or cheaper to become a movie director and with some fantastic deals on camcorders at Very.co.uk, you could join in the fun.
