Many people today favour smartphones for taking home videos, but camcorders continue to be popular for capturing those special moments for posterity. Sharp camcorders are classic or vintage items, yet still offer high quality construction, clear picture and multiple functions to ensure you get the best from your home videos.
Sharp camcorders available
You'll find a varied range of camcorders available, with many of them still in great cosmetic condition and fine working order. Whilst the functionality of these camcorders is suitable for most home video needs, they do lack some of the more modern functions such as Wi-Fi, advanced image effects and HDMI.
The Viewcam MiniDV is a classic model as you can store all of your videos digitally.
The Sharp Viewcam VL-A10H is a great compact all rounder, offering instantaneous playback in colour and sound, allowing you to view your footage on the spot. The Sharp Viewcam features 3" LCD viewscreen with a user friendly interface, 16 x zoom lens, and ability to shoot good quality footage even in low light conditions.
Including 4 image effects (solarisation, negative, black&white, sepia), plus fade and video title writing capabilities, this 8mm camcorder has AV interface to allow for viewing your footage on an AV compatible device such as a TV. The Sharp ViewCam camcorder requires a mini cassette for recording your videos, and a VHS converter can be purchased to remove the hassle of re-recording onto other formats.
For a more vintage style handheld camcorder, the Sharp Video8 SlimCam has a classic look to it and records on 8mm mini video tape. Unlike the Viewcam, this camcorder doesn't have a flip out LCD viewscreen, this is a viewfinder only camcorder with full colour display.
For a classic analogue camcorder, the Video8 SlimCam looks the part, with durable silver plastic body and moveable rubber-trimmed viewfinder for comfort against the eye socket during recording. This camcorder features video playback via AV interface and is compatible with all AV capable devices.
