Budget Consumers

What to Look For

With so many video-capable cellphones in pockets these days, not everyone is looking to spend a ton of money for a camcorder. Luckily, you don't have to. If you're looking for something cheap you can throw in your pocket, a great bargain for a dedicated device, these are the camcorders for you.

We try to emphasize value over low price: sometimes, it pays to spend $30 more if it means that the camcorder will be twice as good or last twice as long. If you're trying to stick to a budget, don't just buy the cheapest thing you can find. Take a look at our picks for budget-conscious consumers.
