Yeah, that's another thing. I remember when camcorders first came out. Those big things you carried on your shoulder.
They got smaller and smaller, but didn't seem that much more appealing to use.
Come to think of it, video cameras always seemed like such a guy thing. Think about it, whenever you'd see a family with a video camera, who'd be running it?
This one is so much more approachable to women. Of course not saying women are dumb, but as a generality I don't think wimmens are as interested in playing with buttons and filters and stuff.
Average person....yeah, that's exactly it. I'm an average person that just quick wanted to record something, and don't want to have to drag out a video camera.
On the other hand, if I were the subject, I wouldn't feel like someone was recording me, no camera with a lense poking out aimed at me.
