“Whether you’re looking for a purpose-built video camera alternative to DSLRs, a ‘B’ or ‘C’ camera to cover another angle for your larger projects, a behind-the-scenes camera to document shoots, or just want to have an extra body handy for ‘deputized’ operators to run around and grab B-roll, we think this class of camera is worth considering,” they explain. “Our Handheld Cinema Camcorder Comparison Chart shows an overview of the key technical specs for each camera. These specifications also translate into differences in production workflow, all of which need to be taken into consideration when choosing the right camcorder for your project.”
