Cell phone video cameras may mean the end of the home video camcorder.

(MONEY TALKS NEWS) — If video killed the radio star, then just imagine what today’s mobile video is doing to conventional video.  For decades, video cameras have been used to capture the action for everything from home movies to TV news like the one here.

Alexander Graham Bell would be spinning in his grave if he saw what his invention today.  A phone is no longer, just a phone.  The release of Apple’s iPhone is proving that.  The new video capture feature allows us to not only make calls, but also take video and pictures.  Hit the send button, and let the sharing begin.

A huge advancement over the way we captured moving images all those years ago.  Reliving those memories on film was as futuristic as could be.  But, what a pain it was to send in film, wait for development and finally load it into a noisy, projector.  Add a bowl of popcorn and it was family night.  Film turned to magnetic tape and that turned into computer chips.

Now, those chips are in our smart phones.  “The marriage of those two concepts together allows someone to instantly upload and share a photo or video they took” Harold Smith tells Money Talks News.

OwleIn the interview for our story, Smith was video taped by Graham McBain, using their Apple iPhone and a device they invented: The OWLE Bubo. Looking much like a video game controller, just attach your iPhone to the unit and the phone becomes a high-quality video camera.

“You can put on different lenses, flashes, microphone and tripods and basically take your iPhone and turn it into the most connected camcorder on the Planet” adds Graham McBain, co-founder of OWLE.

“You never hear I wish I had a camera with me, because we constantly have our cell phones there” McBain added.

It may not be tomorrow, but there’s likely to come a day when both still-camera and video cam go the way of the typewriter. Does anybody remember those?

The “Bubo” will be available, Tuesday October 27th, for $99.95.
