Our selection below, of the best pocket camcorders under $200 is exclusive to the top rated models with a physical depth of 2 inches or less, so as to be conveniently carried around. Though some of these are pretty rugged and for a vacation, they might not have the ability to zoom in much and also tend to have mediocre stabilization. As far as picture quality goes pocket camcorders aren't really meant for professional videos and are often just as good as a high end smartphone.
