The Beet was wondering how all these video clips are being made and posted to the ‘Net in such extraordinary numbers. Do kids have all these camcorders? We asked our tech guro David Carnoy Executive Editor at CNET.com who told us that many people record video on digital cameras with the "movie mode" function.
He says a new crop of consumer electronics product that will likely empower more folks to upload video clips easily and cheaply are video-only MPEG-4 cameras which record 30 minutes of decent video and cost about $125. He says new models will arrive soon and prices for some models will be as low as $75.
