There is currently a massive push on video camera and video camcorder technology, with many product design teams around the globe testing just how far they can push this new technology. I’m sure most of us have now seen the benefits of using an HD television either in our homes or in a shop. It helps to maximise the output of quality with an amazing 1920×1080 pixels being display on the screen, and it hasn’t take video camcorder companies too long to catch up with this new standard.
You can now purchase handheld camcorders, some that are even as small as mobile phones that can amazingly record and store HD video on HD/SD cards for upwards of £100. It is staggering at the rate of electronic product design and it doesn’t look like stopping anytime soon. You have to wonder how long it will be before these companies start developing cameras that can record images that can later be projected as 3D images on our screens.
Apple has always been class leading at innovative design and with their latest version of the Apple iPod Nano they have scored another huge success, with the massively powerful video camera, which allows people to store tiny snippets of video. What makes it so amazing is the fact that they have been able to fit any sort of camera into the Nano. The device is so small that it seems impossible that you could fit a camera all the wiring and everything required into the case.
Who knows where technology will be in ten years time, maybe we will all be shooting video footage in HD and 3D on cameras the size of iPod Nano’s. Whatever it is, it is bound to be beyond our wildest imaginations.
