Camcorder technology has advanced such that even 3D shooting and full HD modes are included in some of the best camcorders under 500 dollar. Such models offer several features, including manual exposure controls, wide-angle lenses and a range of recording formats.

What’s more, manufacturers build in some pretty neat, niche features, like extra optical zoom up to 40x with image stabilization and touchscreen LCD. Take care to look for audio features like speakers and in-built microphone.
