A camcoder is an electronic device used to record video. Most camcorders use a single imaging sensor with integrated colour filters per pixel. This presents a significant manufacturing challenge. However, some camcoders use three separate cameras - a CCD, CMOS, and a triple sensor. This triple sensor design creates additional manufacturing challenges as it requires the alignment of three sensors for optimal image quality. This article explains the differences between the various types of camcoders.

The P2 (2004) solid-state recording format was the first professional-grade format to be released. Panasonic's P2 recorded DVCPRO-HD, DVCPRO50, and AVC-Intra Stream. HDV (2004) records broadcast quality HD on MiniDV cassettes. In 2007, Sony and Sandisk introduced SxS, a solid-state version of XDCAM. The format uses MPEG-2 for compression. This is the most popular type of camcoder.

The two main differences between the two types of camcoders are their recording format and the amount of storage space they require. An older camcorder will record video to tape or microdrives, while newer machines will record to internal solid-state drives or flash memory devices. Some newer machines will record in MPEG-4 or MPEG-1. However, older digital camcorders may require frame regeneration and may lose picture information if they are edited.

Unlike the early digital camcorders, modern camcorders are much smaller and powerful than their earlier counterparts. A video camcorder is a standalone device that converts an optical signal into an electronic signal. In contrast to the live feed, recorded video may have some distortion or loss of detail. Nevertheless, all camcorders have an image-control and recorder-control section. The image-control section allows the user to control exposure, focus, and white-balance settings.
