Videoguys Top 10 Products of 2009!

It's hard to believe another year has gone by. I think 2009 was one of the most challenging years for our industry. The troubled US economy created budget problems for videographers, video editors and producers on every level. In today's economy every penny counts and before we invest in new technology, we have to be sure of the benefits.

In 2009 Tapeless camcorders started dominating the landscape, at every level of video production, each with their own unique wrinkles and complexity. The emergence of tapeless HD acquisition formats have thrown a curveball into our post production workflows. In the past all we had to do was capture the footage to our hard drives - via a capture card or Firewire. With Tapeless acquisition we can go straight to editing, no need to waste time capturing, as long as our NLE supports the format we shot the footage in. Make no doubt about it, Tapeless workflows save you time and time equals money. In 2009 we saw many exciting new products and upgrades that made working with both consumer and professional tapeless HD formats easier and more efficient. So as you would expect, these products dominated our 2009 Top 10 List. Top 10 of 2009!
