A camcorder combines a video camera with a video recorder and used mainly by regular consumers creating home videos. They are sometimes used by specialist film producers for effect but they are rarely used for full scale productions.

Camcorder is a colloquial term for a wide range of video camera recorder devices and they combine both the video recording element with a screen to view what has been recorded. The original camcorders used VHS tapes whilst modern models are available in HD and use flash memory as well as SD memory cards. Camcorders can be used for recording special occasions but they?re also used for small-time documentaries and occasionally for educational purposes in schools. Almost all camcorders now sold have HD capacity.
