10 years ago, we had cameras and then camcorders, one for phots and one for videos..

now with 16GB sticks, we could do both with camera.. is there any more concept of 'camcorder' needed for take videos?

This page http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Cameras-Camcorders/Camcorders/abcat0403000.c?id=abcat0403000  shows 'camcorders' in every price range from $30 up.  Supposedly, the market for both still cameras and camcorders is being taken over to some degree by cell phones with camera capabilities.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camcorder#Consumer_camcorders and read the whole section there for a comparison of camcorders with cameras.

Note that a camcorder will give higher resolution with higher frames per second and have more professional controls for video work.
