Ten of the Best... Pocket Camcorders

YouTuber or home-movie buff - here are the cameras you should audition

Application security programs and practises

Flip Ultra

Flip

The Flip Ultra doesn’t have the highest technical specification of a camcorder - its resolution is a relatively modest 640 x 480, which is a little below the DVD-quality of a standard definition camcorder. However, the Flip’s real strength is its sheer simplicity. There are no complex menus or settings to worry about – you just turn it on and press the big red Record button, and then use the built-in USB connector to transfer your clips onto your computer. It has 2GB of internal memory that can store about one hour of video, and it will last for about two hours with two AA batteries. And it’s nice to see that the bundled software for uploading videos to YouTube works with both Macs and PCs.

Oregon Scientific ActionCam ATC3K

Oregon Scientific ActionCam ATC3K

As the name implies, the ActionCam is specifically designed for manly outdoor activities, such as cycling and snowboarding. It’s water-resistant, and includes a mounting kit that lets you fix it to a crash-helmet or the handlebars of a bike. The ActionCam has a resolution of 640 x 480, so it won’t match the image quality of a more expensive DVD-quality camcorder, but you’re not likely to quibble about that as you go hurtling downhill at 80mph on your mountain bike. It doesn’t include a memory card, although Oregon will provide an optional 4GB card for an extra £10. The bundled software is meant to be compatible with both Macs and PCs, but it’s cunningly stored on a mini-CD that won’t fit into the slot-loading CD drives.
