Hi,
You’re making me LOL!!!
It’s a matter of time before we all get the broadcast quality cams at the VX2000 prices.
Look how far we’ve come:
Back in ’91, TV network cam crews covering the Gulf War brought Hi8 to prominence. That was the standard of excellence for field work back then.
A couple weeks ago, I watched some of the coverage of events in Rome on MSNBC. They ran lots of video footage taken of St. Peter’s Square back in ’78 (I believe) when John Paul II became Pope. The quality was so bad, the cheapest regular 8 cam on the market today would produce better images. (It is unbelievable to me that they would have captured and broadcast such inferior images back in ’78. I wonder if this footage has just physically disintegrated over time? They should have shot film!!!)
Enjoyed this discussion!
REGARDS … TOM 8) 😉 8)

Hi8 ? WHOA! Amazing! Thanks, buddy! that is a GREAT view into video history!
