I recently found a tape I made a few years back. It documents the options for the Sony DCR-TRV11 HandyCam. I’ve always been a sucker for the clunky internal interfaces of visual hardware.
There’s something poetic about the language used and something impressive about how much engineers are able to (presumably, cost-effectivly) milk from consumer devices; adding aesthetic features/filters like “OLD MOVIE” and “NEG. ART.”
It’s a rather long video by today’s browsing standards. Though it’s boring, there’s something about it that I find captivating. The video appears to simply go through the features of the camera. After the simulation, I spell hopped on the just-demoed titler and wrote STAMINA, a prominent word on the main demo page promoting battery life and, incidentally, what it takes to watch the video… I like it on loop…
