Standard camcorder viewfinders display views of the image being recorded in black and white. Viewfinders with color displays are available on pricier camcorder models. In some models, there is no LCD screen, which is a big power consumer. This is where a color viewfinder offers a good trade-off, and you will find that some of the best camcorders with color viewfinder come without the LCD screen.

Top rated camcorders with color viewfinder should include features like flash media, hard drive, full-HD, one or more sensors that ultimately deliver high-resolution and high-quality images, good resolution still shots and over 10x zoom.
