Looking for a way to capture better video on family holidays or when you’re doing something interesting? Best Buy has announced a sale on a range of camcorders and action cameras.
The camcorders on offer will likely get you much better video than your smartphone would, making them perfect for things like making home videos, taking on vacation, and so on. The action cams, on the other hand, are great for attaching to a helmet or clothing, or simply getting better video than your phone in a smaller form factor.
Check out Best Buy’s camcorder and action cam deals below.
There are a number of camcorder models on offer from Best Buy, and they range in price. Ever since the advent of the smartphone, the humble camcorder has come a long way, thanks largely to the fact that it needs to offer far better video quality. Camcorders can often zoom better, record for longer, and have swappable batteries.
