Not all of today's video kids are sitting in front of the television; many are stepping behind the camcorder. This month Videomaker takes a look at three people who are taking part in what we call the "kid vid" movement.
Consumer-level digital video is no longer just a dream, thanks to the introduction of DVC (digital video cassette) camcorders from such major manufacturers as Panasonic and Sony. One of Sony's first entries into the DVC race is the DCR-VX1000 Digital Handycam. Its introduction marks a major turning point in the development of consumer camcorders. For the first time, consumer videomakers have access to a 500-line resolution camcorder they can both hold in one hand and afford without robbing a bank.
