Camcorders and video cameras are getting so small nowadays that I think that we are just a few years away from the day when they become as small as they can get. Here is a list of some of the smallest video cameras that are currently on sale in the market.
Muvi Micro Digital Camcorder
This is basically a clip on mini video camera that is designed for sports and rugged outdoor used. Measuring at just 2.25 x 0.75 x 0.75 inches in dimensions, this is indeed one of the smallest camcorders in the market. It comes with a 2GB SD card that allows you to record up to 3 hours of footage. The device is compatible with SD cards that are up to 16GB in storage. Battery lifespan is decent for a camera of this size where it can last up to 2 hours of continuous shooting. The only con of this camera is that it does not record HD videos.
GE DVX Pocket Video Camera
If you are looking for something a little more full featured, you might want to consider getting the GE DVX. Measuring at 4.1 X 2.2 X 0.8 inches in dimensions, it is still relatively small compared to full-size camcorders. This model comes with a 5MP image sensor that can record full HD 1080p videos. It is also both shockproof, dustproof and waterproof (up to 5 meters underwater), making it perfect for outdoor use.
On the back of the camera you will find a 2.5-inch LCD screen for you to preview your shots. The controls and buttons are fairly straightforward making the camera extremely easy to use. Battery life is also good, lasting up to 260 shots and 80 minutes of HD 1080p video recording. Since its launch, this mini video camera has been receiving tones of raving reviews from consumers and tech experts alike.
Muvi Mini Handsfree Camcorder
This is another highly rated mini camcorder that is designed for outdoor and sports use. It records 1080p HD videos and comes with a 5MP wide-angle lens. It also comes with a versatile mount that allows you to strap the camera onto helmets, your body or any other sport equipments. Unlike the GE DVX, the Muvi Mini is not waterproof where you would need to buy a separate waterproof housing if you plan to in wet conditions. It measures in at 3.1 x 1.8 x 0.75 inches in dimensions.
If all the above still proves to be too big for you, you can opt for gadgets with hidden mini cameras. One of such gadgets are camera watches, or watch cameras. These are mini video cameras that come in a shape of a watch, or a watch that has a built-in mini camcorder, depending on which way you look at it. Despite their price (they are usually very affordable where you can easily get one for less than $50), these watch camcorders often come with pretty decent features such as 1080p video recording, night vision, and many are even waterproof!
Video Cameras Sunglasses
There are also a variety of sunglasses that comes with built-in camcorders in their frame. Unlike watch cameras, these sunglasses are a little bulkier than regular sunglasses, which may break your cover if you are on some undercover, spy mission.
