In the video camera market, the term "HD" is thrown around about as
much as the word "green" is used in the general consumer market. Both
are buzz words intended to lure in customers by making them feel
they’re on the cutting-edge of some important new trend. The number of
consumer digital video cams that claim to shoot HD is staggering,
especially when you consider that most camera companies think shooting
in a 16:9 aspect ratio is automatically HD.
