WIRED: Digital Video Expo Is AV Geek's Wet Dream
LOS ANGELES -- From editors to video bloggers and pornographers, attendees at last week's DV Expo 2007 found a show floor full of gizmos and software to take their productions to the next level.
Hundreds of digital-video-tech manufacturers demo'd their latest wares to potential buyers. If you've tried to take your cat's video LOLblog to the next level, or if you want to sink your teeth into high-quality, prosumer production, check out the latest DV tech offered at the show.
Above: Panasonic's AG-HMC70 is a low-cost, solid-state, shoulder-mounted HD camera. Sporting an array of pro features -- balanced audio inputs (bottom), HDMI outputs, AVCHD codec and an adjustable eyepiece -- this new camera will be quite a deal when it's released at around $1,200.
