Was in an electronics store today to buy the wife a waterproof p&s camera. We were asking about camcorders, thinking we might want one. The shop only stocked three models, and told us that before too long, they would likely carry only one, if any. Reason being that most folks only use phones or cameras to record HD video. But it got me thinking about the "old days" when my parents would tape concerts, plays, etc on VHS. And though ere was only so much time on a video cassette, they could continuously record for the duration/battery life. Not sure about the new camera we got for the wife (Olympus tg-3), but my Nikon d800, a high end full frame dslr only records files to 3.5-4GB. Which I understand is only around 20 minutes. So, I'm curious who uses camcorders vs cameras for recording video. I'm not talking second to minute clips, which I get that cameras are fine for, but rather for longer stuff. Given that 64 and 128GB high speed cards are prevalent, it seems that the issue is file sizes and devices ability to handle them. But maybe I'm missing something here. Any thoughts?
