    Hipsters camera of choice? First they bring back Vinyl, then Polaroids, so is the DVX and MiniDV filmmaking next? Also, am I really that old?

    I can't imagine the hipsters being excited about anything that has "digital" in the name. Long live Polaroid, super 8 and VHS!

    As to age, man, I am really old. My first video experience was on 1/2" B&W EIAJ open reel equipment. Cameras actually had tubes in them back then, you know.

    16x9 was a hassle when having to mix with 4x3, and it was sort of nice when it was either SD video or film. Later on a $3500 DVX shot the same NTSC signal as a $100,000 video camera which was nice. But I don't really miss the analog tape days or even digital tape days.
    Dealing with generation loss and all the other attributes of analog video are not exactly fond memories. But at the same time, it was a different world in a sense. Not "everyone" was doing it and while gear was really expensive, jobs often paid more too.

    I wish i had all the tools I have now 20 years ago! Or even 10 years ago or even 6!

    I'm once again dealing with 4:3 working on some demo reels. I really wish I had switched to 16x9 sooner. Several of my cameras could do it but I resisted for several reasons. It sure would make my job easier now up-ressing footage to mix in.

    Loved my DVX100B it was a wonderful camera and after shooting with Betacams on my shoulder, it was a delight. The images often called "non broadcast" kicked the ass out of those shot by the nay sayers who could only resort to CBC or BBC standards to back them up. But I have to admit, hanging a home made lens adapter off the zoom lens with a vintage Nikkor 50mm lens with home made rods and matte box, a 7 inch auto dvd player for a monitor all balancing on a Home Depot bought aluminum slab attached to a manfrotto quick release.....well kinda sketchy.
    But I was thrilled to have that shallow depth of field shot that was way better that setting the cam up at the other end of the building and zooming in gave me. Scared the sh1t out of many an interview subject and old school director.
    I just tossed out a couple of boxes of tape a couple of months ago kept one and a small sony handycam just in case I ever need to log and transfer. It sits right beside the VHS player and DVD recorder, sort of an in house museum.

    I honestly wouldn't mind if MiniDV made a bit of a comeback.. or CCD cameras for that matter, there is something beautiful about CCD chips.. CMOS, idk, I understand they're pros but everything looks too good now, it doesnt have a personality really anymore.
