When will the next generation cameras come out?
This article http://www.washingtonpost.com/...tent/article/2007/12/28/AR2007122802672.html says the following:.

"Camera makers and perhaps consumers are waiting for a big technology change. Meghan Henning, an analyst with the CEA, said upcoming lines of high-definition cameras, which will produce images that reach the resolution of high definition television, could boost sales in that category.".

So does anyone know when these new high-def cameras will be coming out in 2008? Are we talking in the first quarter? Fourth quarter?..

1080p is the shorthand name for a category of display resolutions. The number "1080" represents 1,080 lines of vertical resolution,[1] while the letter p stands for progressive scan (meaning the image is not interlaced). 1080p is considered an HDTV video mode. The term usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a horizontal resolution of 1920 pixels. This creates a frame resolution of 19201080, or 2,073,600 pixels in total.thanks to Wikipedia.

HD TV = 2Mp? Did the article mean video cameras?..

Yes. Evidently it's High Definition TV that's being talked about, and the new video cameras needed to shoot movies to them...

.... at least "reading between the lines" (pun) ... eh, Paul? Regards,Baz..

LOL. They came out in 1998. Nowadays you will not be able to find a camera with such low resolutions as HDTV..

The reason still cameras have resolutions several times higher than high definition television is that a) moving images require far less detail as it cannot be distinguished, b) it would involve far too much bandwidth and storgage space, and c) they involve far higher-resolution display formats (e.g., prints) and often need to be displayed at far bigger sizes..

The new generation of cameras has already been released over the last few months. Jump on board any time you like - there won't be any big changes with the next lot, which will come out in 2009 judging by typical cycles...

Hi, I assumed it was but seeing how aggressive some replies get here I decided to make myself seem less sure in case I was wrong:-)..

The article is not particularly clear about this, but they must mean high definition digital video cameras. For digital still cameras have long surpassed the resolution of HDTV, maybe a decade ago, maybe earlier. HDTV might be high resolution for a television set, but isn't particularly high resolution when compared to regular computer screens, and actually very low resolution when compared to digital still cameras. Digital video cameras are a different thing, the resolution of consumer-grade digital video cameras is generally lower than that of HDTV, so the breakthrough the article is talking about must concern them.pbase Supporter..

Well, I doubt it as it said TV, not movies, and HD cams for television (news, sports, documentary, etc.) are still only two megapixels..

Also movies are shot on film, and there are very few digital cinematic cameras in use as the quality is way below both digital SLR and 35mm film movie cameras..

The only place where digital video has replaced film is in porn and, to some extent, advertising, both because of low budgets...

Of course, where movies are shot just one frame at a time (stop motion) it's quite possible to use still dSLR cameras to shoot them with, as was done with "The Corpse Bride" of 2005..

Interestingly, the cameras used were Canon EOS-1D MkII model, but modified to accept Nikon lenses (Ho ho!) and, from the sound of things, they were adapted to live video viewing too....

Back to the original question; didn't the next generation come out in the 70's when digital still cameras first appeared?.

Trouble is, "next generation" is a vague idea: like most marketing claims. Wasn't it used when we went from 2 megapixels to 3 megapixels etc, etc?.

Umm, that has no relevance to movie or video cameras...

Comment #9

Next generation refers to very new or forthcoming versions. I'm sure it was used when a 2MP camera was replaced with a 3MP version..

Hi,.

The trouble is that it ("next generation") often has no relevance to photography..

Sometimes it just means that they have left off the optical viewfinder and sprayed the thing pink or silver or black. Or, in other words, a purely marketing move. (And they get paid well to do it and are allowed to vote... ).
