TRV900 for small size and image quality...

HC1 for the "first" affordable consumer HD(V) camera

Re: Digital Camcorder Hall of Fame - Who Gets In? Why?

All the cameras mentioned have incredible merit, seems like for the past 8-9 years almost every new camera has had a must have or unique feature. To keep the list short and focused, I would probably vote XL1, DVX100 and HVX as the no brainers. PD-150, FX1 and HD100 as the next in line. I think those are cameras most recognizable for filmmakers that aren't necessarily tech people.

I love DSLR's, but hall of fame imo requires some hindsight, so I'd say in a few years the 5D is in for sure.

The XL1 for sure as it started a line of cameras and accesorries that had some legs to them. Even though Canon never quite got the shoulder mount right, the line of products was pretty robust.

Ironically I have owend the XL1, DVx100 and HVX200 so I am voting for those!

Canon XL1 -
Panasonic DVX100
Sony Z1
GoPro
5D
RED 1

I would also put a special mention in for the granddaddy of the 35mm adapters, the P&S Technik Mini35. That really changed the camcorder game.
