Digital cameras could soon make entry level dedicated video camcorders a thing of a past - just like high end mobile phones are kicking the a** of cheap digital cameras. Sony is undergoing some radical management changes spurred by the global economic recession and research and development is likely to take a massive hit. But it is great to see that innovation is still alive at the Japanese company.
