While your smartphones, DSLR or mirrorless camera may be capable of recording video, in some cases you should reach for the tool that was made specifically for the job - which is why we still love digital video cameras.
Ted’s stock a wide range of digital video cameras, from family-friendly entry-level camcorders and action cameras, to professional cinema cameras, which can be trusted to fit into professional workflows and produce broadcast quality video.

When deciding on which digital video camera is right for you, make sure you take the following features into account: video resolution, size, zoom range, accessory compatibility and connectivity. If your goal is to create content, make sure you pick a video camera for vlogging or that you can live-stream with. Check out our guide of the 5 best camcorders to help you find the best video camera for you.Making the most of your video camera
While the quality of your results may be pleasing right out of the box, by pairing your digital camera with a kit of accessories, you can make your vlog or short movie rise above the competition.
We particularly recommend pairing your digital video camera with a high-quality external microphone. Sound is just as important to your video as its visual components. By using an external microphone you can be sure that everything in your video can be heard and understood, keeping viewers engaged.
Natural light is great, but it can’t be relied on for consistency. Whether you are filming in the studio or on location, Ted’s stock a range of external lights to light up your video and keep it free from dark and grainy footage. We are talking about everything from reflectors to LED ring lights.
