Story about Video File Icon


Video cameras started out as space-hogging machines mounted on wheeled tripods—used to record television shows and movies. Unlike today, regular people hardly owned them because of the hefty price tag. Video cameras started to become more widely accessible once television studios began to make their cameras more portable and mobile.

The first video camera that captured in color dates back to the late 1950’s. The cameras were bulky and used vacuum tubes that heat up over time.

Solid-state components eventually came into the picture and replaced these vacuum tubes, which made the cameras more compact.


The earliest camcorders had to be plugged into a tape machine in order to function, but still sparked audience interest. Sony developed the first digital video camera in 1986, and in 2000, introduced the high definition video format to clear up the picture for everyone. By 2003, we bid goodbye to tapes, and started welcoming video cameras in our phones.
Today, videos are easily captured from wherever. Video cameras are placed on devices smaller than credit cards; you can take videos while jumping off a plane (safely), or as you dive deep into the ocean.

The video icon commonly used today is more reminiscent of the early video cameras. The icon usually indicates the availability of the video function.
