Wishes for 2008

Spotting a falling star today entitles to making some wishes in this first post of the year. Fideocam blog is officially on its third year and the following events should hopefully take place this year. Since sometimes being a bit of pessimist is a good thing the likely scenario was added.

  • RED ‘Scarlet’ will be a 2K camera with interchangeable lenses and go for under $2500
    • instead it will be $5000 and not SLR-lens compatible
  • The whole AVCHD debacle will be behind us
    • instead partial solutions are parsed together 
  • Leading PVR vendor will publish NAS compatible model to crown the home entertainment system
    • unfortunately device requires re-encoding to some obscure propriatory format
  • Polar will counter Garmin Forerunner 405 with a recording update to G3 GPS unit
    • Polar offers no upgrade path from my otherwise lovely 400SD
  • Open APIs to social networking (APML) will really hit off
    • Social network owners keep trying to artificially tie people

This far it feels like a good year. Fingers crossed!

    Red Scarlet was just announced at NAB2008. It’s 3k and will be coming out early 2009. Curiously something called wi-fi control is included.
