These days, there are many companies in the market offering different types of gadgets, each claiming to be the maestro in the world of technology. Along with other gadgets, almost every company has introduced different models of tablets! Tablets are ideal for video recording as they have larger screens along with good quality cameras and many other features.
Now that I have shared detailed reviews of all of the 10 best tablets for video recording with you, there are a few more things that you need to know before you make a final purchase. This buying guide will help you make an informed decision.
The camera quality of a tablet is the most crucial factor if you need the tablet specifically for video recording. The camera quality of a tablet is judged by the number of megapixels it has. The higher the number, the better the camera. Likewise, the lower the number of megapixels, the inferior its camera quality will be.
You must spend your money on a tablet that comes with a higher number of megapixels. In addition to that, other camera features such as HDR and autofocus should also be checked as they will come in handy when you are recording videos on the tablet.
A good processor makes sure that your tablet does not lag when you have multiple apps open, and the battery life of the tablet does not worsen. Every company includes a different type of processor in its models. It is important that you opt for a model that comes with a good processor that will not only watch your battery life but will also allow you to use multiple apps without one affecting the other.
If you need a tablet for video recording and it keeps dying after every few hours, what good will it do you? This is not rocket science; the battery life of a tablet is critical whether you are using it for video recording or any other task! The battery life of a tablet also has an impact on its portability. If it goes 20 hours on a single charge, you can easily take it up on trips and events with you. However, in cases where the battery gets drained within 3 hours, the tablet will not be considered ideal for road trips.
RAM & Storage
This goes without saying; the amount of storage a tablet offers is very important if it is to be used for video recording. The amount of space is measured in the form of GB, and TB, etc. Videos take up a large amount of space, as they are heavier than pictures. So if the idea of going through the gallery and deleting videos and apps after every few weeks does not seem appealing to you, then do yourself a favor and go for a model that comes with large storage space. Likewise, the RAM should be at least of 4GB if you do not want your tablet to lag!
Apart from storage, battery life, and camera quality, there are many other features that users do not commonly notice, but they make a huge difference. Firstly, there is the type of mic and speakers. The quality of both should be checked before you spend your money.
Secondly, smart features such as facial and voice recognition really come in handy. You can use the voice recognition feature when the gadget is at a distance from you. So make sure you go for a model that has either facial recognition or voice recognition. Lastly, there is the screen size of the tablet. Stay away from anything less than 10 inches; you will thank me later.
Tablets have proven to be quite useful, especially when it comes to video recording. I have shared detailed reviews of all the models that I personally liked, along with a buying guide that will help you make an informed decision. However, if you are still unsure, then let me share my top 3 recommendations.
