Engineers from the imaging industry have ‘discovered’ video. Video, in all its quality formats, becomes more important than ever before. Recent development point out to a different strategy and it could turn out that photo will be distributed from a video capture. The traditional camcorder format is also changing, where younger generation consumers discovered the pocket camcorders to upload their social media channels. Dimensions and weight, and High Definition video quality, packed in a compact housing are one of the most important specifications for success.
