3 Benefits of Buying a Video Camera with a Hard Drive

If you want to own a video camera, there are several options for storage of your video files, but there are benefits to buying a video camera with a hard drive. Here are some reasons to do so.

1. You Can’t Lose the Video Files

If you have a video camera that requires you to use a DVD or tape, then it’s always possible that you will lose the disk or it could become corrupted somehow. If you instead have a hard drive, it is inside the camera so you can’t lose it unless of course, you lose the entire video camera.

2. You Don’t Have to Buy Any Storage Devices

If you have a video camera with a hard drive inside, then you don’t have to spend any additional money to buy tapes or DVDs (or whatever the camera might use for storage). Hard drive cameras come with different sizes of hard drives installed.

3. Transfer Speed from Camera to Computer Is Faster

All you have to do if you have a video camera with hard drive is hook it up to the computer and start the transfer. Since the transfer goes directly from one hard drive to another hard drive, if you are taking files from a video camera with a hard drive and putting them on your computer to edit, it runs faster due to no third party device.
