Video Cameras

Then: In 1956, Ray Dolby, Charles Ginsberg, and Charles Anderson invented a video camera that was the first machine to record both image and sound. The machines sold for $75,000 a piece and only sold to large TV networks until the 80's. The first commercial color video camera to utilize a completely solid-state image sensor called a charge-coupled-device (CCD) was developed by Sony in 1980.

Now: Make homemade movies with an HD Flip Video camera or hand-held Panasonic camcorder that can easily fit in any pant pocket.
