  1. I think dedicated camcorder-type cameras are likely to be a thing of the past. Those who want high quality video can always get a DSLR that gives them more. If they don’t need that high quality, there’s always the compact P&S camera or the little Fllip cameras. I don’t even really get why Flip things exist. I’d much rather use a P&S with an actual real-life, honest-to-goodness zoom.

      Neat toy, and it certainly makes nice video. There are some issues with it for me. I prefer a larger sensor. I even find 2/3″ sensors to be too small to get decent depth-of-field control. I also prefer a bit more manual control. But remember, my video experience is in a traditional broadcast production environment, and so my desire is different than a lot of people. I would certainly consider a Sony NEX5 or NEX7 with the Sony 18-200mm E-series lens. They are similar in size and shape to the JVC, but the lenses are interchangeable.
