We have just spotted another superb deal on Canon's latest 4K camcorder - which will save you nearly £300 on this pro-grade video camera from Amazon. The Canon Legria HF G70 was launched last year, and builds on previous high-end digital camcorders in Canon's range - and now at  just £796.02 at Amazon it is a real bargain (and unbelievably even cheaper than we saw it over Black Friday and in the Boxing Day sales).

With a monster 20x optical zoom and 4K recording. this is a pro-spec camcorder that is ideal for shooting action or wildlife – as well as family events. This is the best UK price we have ever seen on this model - even beating the big discount we saw just after Christmas.

With most cameras and camera phones now shooting video, so may well ask why anyone would want a camcorder - a type of video camera that had its heyday in the 1990s, when they recorded on tape. And indeed, there are fewer models around nowadays, as fewer people are buying them.

But the key attractions of a camcorder is that it has a big built-in zoom. In the case of the Canon Legria HF G70 optical zoom - the equivalent of having a built-in 30-600mm lens. So capable of everything from wide shots to super-telephoto close-ups of wildlife and action. 

What's more, camcorders (unlike your phone, and most stills cameras) are designed for shooting video. There is a hand strap that ensures you keep the set-up steady - with motorized zoom controls perfectly placed for use by your right index finger. There is an electronic eyelevel viewfinder for framing - but also a fully-rotating LCD for use on a tripod, or for reviewing your footage.
