For anyone that hasn't guessed I got a new video camera for Christmas and am still playing with it oddly enough. It seems every time I get a new camera the people who make these thing feel that their camera is so important that they should have a proprietary video format. Can anyone out there please explain to me how this generates them any money? Other than being a huge pain in the butt, why do video companies feel they are helping thier consumers by making them convert these formats into one of the worldwide accepted formats?
We spent a portion of the afternoon cruising around, it isn't as easy as it looks as the throttle and the camera are both right handed, and for some reason I also chose to film from the right side.
