Global Digital Camcorders Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A digital camcorder is a device that records video footage onto an electronic medium, typically a hard disk or flash memory. Most digital camcorders can also take photographs.

4K Resolution:

4K resolution is a term used for Ultra High Definition (UHD) or 4 times the HDTV standard. It has four times the number of pixels as compared to the conventional HDTV and is often referred to as 4K TV or UHD TV. The first 4K camcorder was Sony HDR-HC3, it had 2160p60 video quality which was introduced in EOS 5D Mark II in 2012.

5K Resolution:

5K resolution is a term used for referring to the width and length of image sensors in digital cameras and camcorders. It is derived from the Bayer filter optical technology that was developed by Dr. John L. Hall of Bell Laboratories in the early 1970s for improving color sensitivity in imaging systems used by television stations, photo labs., etc.

Application Insights:

Amateur users accounted for the largest share of over 50% in 2017. The growth is attributed to the availability of affordable products with high performance and features. Professional use camcorders are widely used by videographers or journalists for shooting events, live concerts, sports games, and other activities that require a lot of angles to cover a story. These devices have been gaining popularity among professional photographers as well as amateurs owing to their ability to shoot in low light conditions and capture clear images even at night time.
