    I may be late to the party, but this is a fascinating page. I could watch it for hours. :lol:

    This one really hits home for me because we had one of these camcorders when I was in high school (not that particular model, but I definitely recognize some of the components that were used on other ones in the line). :lol:

    Technology Connections is a great channel. He discusses a lot of things that others overlook. Believe it or not, he did a video on tail lights and turn signals, and I watched the whole thing. It was really fascinating.

    I've watched a few of his videos before.

    I liked this one on early mechanical television...

    I'm looking forward to watching more. I learned a lot about the Beta/VHS wars that I didn't know before. I knew Sony basically fucked up the marketing, but didn't know much of the other stuff.

    I'm just glad that Beta morphed into the Betacam professional format. Industry standard for the better part of three decades and for good reason. VHS's foray into broadcast consisted of S-VHS, which looked horrible in comparison and was only ever purchased by ultra-cheap companies.
