Blu-Ray Video Cameras?

Later this year you can expect to see "a series of camcorders featuring Hitachi's new 8cm BD/DVD drive bundled with a biggie, 5.3 megapixel CMOS sensor capable of recording at full 1,920 x 1,080 resolution."

The camcorders would record up to 7GB of MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video on 8cm BD-RE/R media or 5 times less on 8cm DVD-RAM/RW/R discs.

The story is too old to be commented.

Hey, this will surely make filming ridiculous Youtube videos even easier!

wow technology is progressing really fast. I think we are getting closer to uncompress video. The only ting that would set it back would be a format that can handle uncompressed video.

look up there on the tabs. you'll find that there's a technology section.
The article goes in the tab and that tab is not bound by any gaming related rules.

just to let you know.

While the dead format and h-dvdead fanbois over at asvforums try to sell h-dvdead disks so they can survive a little longer, Blu-ray is already expanding into the Computer market and now video cameras.
Awesome.

Blu-ray FTW!!!!!!!!!!

this article is talking about consumer cameras, which always suck. there is way more to video than resolution. consumer cameras use cheap (small) ccd's that are terrible in low light, and it only gets worse as you go higher in resolution (for a given ccd size). what you end up with is a sensor with hardly any dynamic range at all (dark scenes black out, bright areas blow out white, with very little range inbetween). no consumer hd camera shoots better than even a dvx100 (standard def, minidv 1/3" ccd panasonic), just because the ccd's and image circuitry is so much more advanced in pro-sumer and professional models.

besides, sony already has direct-to-blu-ray cameras, they're just called xd-cam (the bd-rom is in a protective case), and only available on professional cameras. the format is tanking against HDV and P2, and probably won't be around much longer.
