The Digital Bolex D16 Cinema Camera, sporting its snazzy retro pistol grip

There was a time, not all that long ago, when most independent film-makers shot their projects on relatively-inexpensive 16mm film – it wasn't as pricey as 35mm, but was definitely a step up from Super 8.

Sony's new Handycam HDR-GW66VE
