Best Video Cameras in 2020 (February Reviews)

To help you find the best video camera for your recording needs, we tried out a wide variety of top models, testing for true HD recording, occasionally in 4K, boasting a minimum of 30 FPS, with a suite of video-friendly accoutrements, such as built-in microphones, night vision capabilities and simple-to-use touchscreens, for making adjustments on the fly. We were also attracted to products with functionality for SD cards, cloud storage and coming with great remote controls.

The best video camera we tried was easily the Sauleoo 4K Camcorder, which captures true 4K video at a fraction of the price of comparable models, with a built-in noise reducing microphone, night vision capabilities and a large LCD touchscreen that allows for a bevy of adjustments. The product is light, 1.6 pounds, and can capture video and audio even while charging up the battery, which is extremely handy. Keep reading to learn more about the Sauleoo 4K Camcorder and the other models on this list.
