MiniDV tapes also record much more footage than a comparably priced DVD. Most importantly, the video quality of the top-rated MiniDV camcorders is quite superior. As with other types, MiniDV camcorder prices also vary from under $200 to several times this budget. You can decide which camcorder suits you best by looking closely at CCD Resolution (larger CCD is better), low lux rating (lower lux means good low-light performance), LCD Screen size (larger is better), zoom (both digital and optical should be present), image stabilization technique (optical stabilization is more effective), and battery life. Note that many of the best MiniDV camcorders enable recording in full 1080p HD.
