Review Panasonic HC-VXF990 Camcorder

The popularity of amateur camcorders is gradually declining. The reason is simple: if earlier buying an inexpensive video camera was the only way to record video on family holidays and on trips, today most users use smartphones for this purpose. In addition, in recent years, the video capabilities of SLR cameras and mirrorless cameras with interchangeable optics have greatly expanded. They are most often chosen for commercial shooting, when artistry is important.

However, classic amateur camcorders are in no hurry to retire. Recently I happened to get acquainted with one of the top camcorders in the amateur segment – Panasonic HC-VXF990.

5 best IP cameras

The main feature of any IP camera is its electronic filling. Depending on the cost of the device, it may have different additional functionality. For example, there are models that have a night mode – they do not need to turn on the light in the room.

Many models produced by Corum have a waterproof housing, which allows them to be installed even on the street, attaching to the facade of the building. Continue reading

Choose a compact camera in 2019

Modern compact cameras are extremely convenient for traveling, hiking and simple walks in a busy city, and are able to provide high-quality images that are not inferior to the sometimes larger analogues, which barely fit in special backpacks. And today we bring to your attention a small rating of the best compact cameras in the spring of 2019.

If you suddenly wanted to buy a compact camera, you will probably be glad to learn that the modern market offers a really huge selection of high-quality models. And this despite the fact that the sheer number of leading brands (most of which are of course Japanese) is not so great. In addition, each of the current models can offer something that your smartphone, for example, will not be capable of. It can be either various sensors or optical zoom, as well as many other features, such as a sufficient number of controls and settings, providing you the freedom to be creative when shooting.
