The event

Why buy another camcorder - the camera films just as well. Or even better? In practice, weighing is not as simple as it seems, because in addition to the pure technical data, there are quite different creative possibilities depending on the camera, which cannot be so easily put on the scales. Joachim Sauer explains from practical experience what considerations should be made when choosing a camera.
