What has happened to cameras with video INPUT?

      Once upon a time, almost every video camera (of any format) included an audio/video INPUT for recording from external sources. This feature seems all but lost on camcorders today!

      I’m looking for a moderately-priced consumer camcorder to record video from an external bullet cam. After browsing Best Buy’s selection (as a typical consumer camcorder selection these days) I couldn’t find a single camera that appeared to offer line input recording.

      Does anyone here know of (or have) a currently-sold, still-manufactured, still-supported camcorder with an external video input? I’d appreciate finding out!

      There is a wide variety of camcordersaround todaywith A/V (Analog) input.It seems that the A/V input feature has been replaced with having DV (Firewire) input capabilityon most DV tapecamcorders.

      Try browsing through theJVCEverio Hard DiskCamcorders.

MFT, or micro four thirds, is a popular mount style used by many manufacturers in conjunction with the micro 4/3 sensor. It’s good to keep in mind that micro four thirds camera systems use a smaller sensor.
