Buying A Digital Camcorder for A Teenager

Camcorders make great gifts for pre-teens and teenagers because at this age they are keen to move on from "toy" video recorders, and want to record all the fun things they get up to with their friends!

Even though your child will now be old enough to use a "proper" video camera (as opposed to an interactive toy), you still need to think carefully about what model you buy them. Sure, teens are more responsible and independent than preschoolers, but they can be just as careless with their belongings! So you need to work out how much you are willing to spend on your teen's camcorder, bearing in mind the fact that they may not look after it quite as you would hope!

When you are buying a digital camera for a very young child, all you really need to worry about is how durable it is, because you can guarantee it will be put through a great deal of rough treatment! Obviously your teen is not going to throw his camera around or chew on it, but it is pretty likely that he will leave it lying around on the floor, where it can be stepped on, or even lose it.

This makes spending hundreds of dollars on a camcorder for a teenager a bad idea. There is absolutely no point shelling out for the latest top of the range model when you cannot be sure how long it will survive in your teen's hands!

Fortunately, there are plenty of quality camcorders available for under $200, which is about the right price for a teen's model. These are great "starter" video recorders, some of them with some pretty sophisticated features that an adult would be perfectly happy with. So if you have an aspiring movie director in your family, you can pick up a good quality recorder that will blow them away - without breaking the bank.

You should look for a user-friendly model that your teenager is going to be able to get the hang of fairly quickly. Some models have an intuitive touch screen interface, which is great for teens as they are likely to be accustomed to using Smart phones. Look for a lightweight, compact model that your teen can carry about with him with ease. A camera that recharges through the computer is handy, as it does away with the hassle of batteries! Another good feature is an image stabilizer, which helps achieve steady film, even when your teen is on the move.

Your teenager is likely to have an opinion when it comes to choosing the right camcorder for teenager. If you keep the above in mind when shopping, you are likely to make a choice that keeps you both happy.
