With the Holidays upon us many will want to capture the memories at dinner and or parties with a camcorder.
Although many now use their cell phones to capture video, there is still demand for good old fashioned camcorders that record in HD and have a bigger viewfinder than a cell phone camera. Not too mention some eco friendly attributes such as solar power.
We found such a camcorder at Walyou, the tech blog which showcases a solar powered camcorder from Hammecher Schlemmer. This one has a fold out panel which when directed at sunlight will power your compact cam with additional running time, how much depends on how long it’s exposed to the Sun. Approximately an extra 12 minutes per hour of Sun exposure.
May or may not be feasible in today’s age of the all mighty smartphone.
