PAL Camcorders - Ideal for Home Videos

The camcorder was not always the compact little device that it is today. Professional broadcasting and movie making utilized cameras that were too cumbersome for regular use. Later, Sony came up with the Betacam, and things changed forever. JVC soon adapted and redesigned their portable professional cameras to give the world its first consumer grade VHS camcorder, which would go on to become the industry standard. Early consumer camcorders were large shoulder mounted devices, and yet they made recording videos incredibly easy. The portability continued to improve and once cameras started going digital, sizes reduced even further while their features multiplied.
