Video cameras can be used to record a performance, presentation, or event for later playback. There are two main options for controlling the position of a camcorder when trying to make a recording. One is to use a handheld video camera that is carried by an operator who has complete mobility and full control of the direction of the lens. Another option is to attach the camcorder to a tripod, which creates a very steady video shot. Some other important features to consider include form factor, lens type, video connector types (such as HDMI, SDI, HD-SDI, or Fiber), and built-in recording features.
