It was twenty years ago today...

The forum here at DV Info Net first opened for posting exactly twenty years ago today, 05 Sep. 2001.

In some ways it doesn't seem that long ago and in other ways it does.

That first month, I wasn't sure if it had much of a future. For that matter, this past year I didn't know if it had any future at all, but alas here we are. Not going away anytime soon, either!

Re: It was twenty years ago today...

Happy anniversary Chris... and long live DVinfo.net!!! This is funny though, just yesterday I realized it had been 20 years since I got my first digital video camera.... a Sony VX-2000 purchased during the summer of 2001!

Re: It was twenty years ago today...

Twenty years. That's time enough for someone to be born and grown up in --- or ---- grow old in.

The various miracles of HDV, the AGUS35, a proposal to make a digital cinema camera out of a Russian cine camera body thence to become the SI2K. Then along came RED, a whole slew of DSLR miracles, Blackmagic Design.

Then after the jolt in the arse by the disrupters, the main players began releasing their own digital cinema cameras and life goes on.

Dvinfo remains a resource I often point people to when they run into a difficulty and venture here myself when I need to know something. I am not old enough to know everything yet and there's no going back to being a teenager who thought he knew everything.

Re: It was twenty years ago today...

I've been here well over half that twenty years but now I only drop in very few months but I stopped working professionally with video & photography 7-8 years ago & have other things occupying my brain cells nowadays. It's a nice coincidence that Chris should post this yesterday when I haven't popped in for months.

I learned so much in my first few years of membership of this forum. I started with the tail end of HDV but very quickly jumped onto DSLR video. I was pleased to be involved in the excitement & discovery during that couple of years that lead to the democratisation of video until suddenly everyone has a halfway decent 4K video camera in their pocket. This also meant that while the 'proper' pro end of video is still as healthy as ever & possibly even healthier post-pandemic that the retail end that I was involved in ie small business, wedding etc is even more of a struggle than it was ten years ago. Nobody ever wanted to pay the real value of decent video but nw the world & his wife are YouTube influencers it seems that it's valued even less.

I learned lots of technical stuff but also business & creative stuff too. Thank you to everyone who has contributed over the years & while there is a general decline in all use of forum software I really hope that people will continue contributing.

Twenty years. Twenty years of friendships with people I've never met yet feel close to. Twenty years of learning from others and sharing my videos and ideas. Twenty great years, and I've been a member for 19 of those years. Lets keep it rolling. Bob

Well, we spoke too soon. As you know, Sony just pulled out so I won't be at NAB. Let's start looking forward to 2022.

Re: It was twenty years ago today...

LoL...I don't know if you say that because I haven't posted anything here in years. To be honest, I thought this forum suffered the same fate as Creative Cow, since I haven't seen any recent news posted on the blog side. I'm glad the forum is still up, but the GUI needs some serious overhaul.😜
