Web Video Casting

I have been doing a fair amount of research recently on web video casting. I have a camcorder, a JVC GR-DVX7 that I bought on a trip to New York City many years ago.

The thing has been a great toy and trouble free for all these years. I have to say, I never really got into video like I did still photography. I think one of the problems with video is that you have to transfer the video onto a VHS tape, or now a DVD to watch it on TV. You don’t get the instant gratification that you get with stills, though that is changing now with ever cheaper and faster computers and the price of editing software is pretty low too.

Anyway, with the future of the internet being deeply rooted in video, I’m getting up to speed and producing my own video for the web. I’ve done a couple of things while testing, I may post a couple here if I can, just for a laugh!

But, the point of all this is, I’m replacing my camcorder! Shock, horror! Not that trusty, reliable workhorse you’ve had for years…

Yep! And there are a couple of very good reasons! I’ll post more on that next week, but I’m pretty sure they’re not the reasons you think…

My replacement just arrived… It’s a used Canon Optura Xi…
