RE: Eclair Cameras: The Future!

Mark: Hi Michael --- Absolutely agreed that everything will eventually be digital ... but I'll bet that nothing will cost less because of it.

But doesn't it serve to reason that the new Panasonic camcorder which records 24P is only 3 or 4 grand, and twenty years ago an Eclair ACL cost 16 grand and inflation was less. I know that 24P probably doesn't look quite as good as the film shot with a 16mm camera (yet). But if that Panasonic camera is any indication, I would hypothesize that the cost of video equipment which can equal the quality of film will eventually drop to extremely affordable levels. It's only a matter of years, I think before film cameras will be gathering mothballs because video will be able to reproduce the quality instantaneously. However, a lot of that depends on the economy, the 2004 election, and the butterfly flapping its wings halfway across the world;)
