A camcorder is definitely an digital camera that mixes a camcorder along with a video recorder into one unit typically for out-of-studio consumer videos. Equipment producers don't appear to possess strict recommendations for that term usage for example ads may present the unit by its colloquial term camcorder, while full title around the package and manual is frequently camcorder recorder. Handycam is really a new sony brand accustomed to market its camcorder range. It had been released in 1985 named the first Video8 camcorder, changing Sony's previous type of Betamax-based models, and the name was intended to emphasize the "handy" palm size nature of the camera, made possible by the new miniaturized tape format. It was in marked contrast towards the bigger, shoulder mounted cameras available before the development of Video8, and competing more compact formats for example VHS-C.
