4 Reasons For

Three Battery Slots

The Lexibook DJ280 has more battery slots than most of the similar spec video cameras that have been available for around the same time as the DJ280. Most of the similar spec camcorders that are a comparable age to the DJ280 only have between one and two battery slots, however this Lexibook video camera has three battery slots.

Very Light

The weights of camcorders of a comparable age and type to the DJ280 range from 57g to 3.9kg. With a weight of only 180 grams, the Lexibook DJ280 is one of the lighter small sensor size camcorders that were released more than two years ago amongst camcorders of this age.

If you would consider a camcorder with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Panasonic HC-V130[plb_2196459_price] (181g).
