Advantages of a DVD Digital Camcorders over Other Formats

There are a few different types of digital camcorders that you can choose from, and some of the most popular are DVD digital camcorders. When choosing between the different types of camcorders, it is important that you do your research so you can make an informed decision.

Easy to Read

All DVD camcorders will write the video you record onto mini DVD disks. This means that it is relatively easy for you to play back the videos on almost any DVD player. You can use these much easier than a memory card-based camcorder.

Easy to Edit

Another  benefit of choosing a DVD camcorder is that you can also put the disk into your computer. This makes it much easier to transfer the video to your computer for editing than a DV camcorder, which will need to be connected with a cable.


DVDs are recorded using Random Access which will make it very easy to skip between content on the mini DVD disk without needing to rewind or fast forward the tape.


DVD disks are highly durable; this makes them last much longer than a DV tape. DV tapes can be stretched. As long as a DVD is treated carefully, it will last for a very long time.
