Been thinking about this for a while.
Like many of you, I remember consumer video before DSLR. I would see higher end online productions and film students use something like bulky XDCAMs with the mounted mics and kit zoom lens, or for those with less money, the standard consumer hand-sized digital camcorders.
Things like documentaries/interviews/web videos seem to have been taken over by cameras which have the capability of a "film" look. Two brands in specific I don't see getting anymore buzz are JVC and Panasonic.
Since I've been here, I haven't seen a thread considering that old form factor of camera unless it was for budget purposes.
So am I going crazy or will iPhones and DSLR/Digital Cinema cameras replace the JVC camcorders I keep seeing in the B&H catalog?
