There's nothing better than anachronisms...

Am I the only person to have a problem with this advert? Or not the advert itself, so much as the alleged technology? I don't know much about camcorders, apart from the fact that in their early days they were tape-based and pretty bulky things...I doubt any that were in existence in 1983 would have had a date-stamp, and I'm not sure any that were around in 1993 would have that much of an on screen display (could be wrong)...anybody else know for certain?

Yes indeedy - I am old enough to have owned both and my Dad had a cine camera which took film very much like the first clips.

Brig -- Not Best Pleased by sallymn

No idea about date stamps for definite, but I'm just boggling at them using the Father Christmas Toby Jug for gravy when everyone (i.e. my family) knows full well that it's supposed to be used for white sauce.
