Choosing the best pocket camcorders

Being as compact as a mobile phone or an MP3 player, pocket camcorders are designed as helpful tools for people on the go. Whether you are witness to an amazing scene in the street or just wish to record several moments of an exciting evening, the camera will take care of storing these unpredictable moments. Once recorded, the video can be displayed on the integrated LCD or viewed in larger format on an HD screen.
