Digital cameras are great for taking photos. It’s amazing how one person without any background knowledge on photography can come up with beautiful photos with the use of a tiny camera. It is perfect for taking still shots but what it lacks in awesomeness is recording videos.
Videos take up a great amount of space and most digital cameras have limited amount. Transferring videos to a computer can be slow and creating a DVD ca also be a problem. Recording videos on a digital camera is a secondary feature, an added bonus per say. A digicam also has no microphone that will allow for the video that will prevent picking up unnecessary noises in the background.
When it comes to recording videos, it is still better to use a standard camcorder. It is easier to edit videos and make a DVD with one. Though digicams are cheap, it still will not give the best results for video recording
