InformationWeek - Millions of consumers a week buy mobile phones with digital video cameras, and several Web sites are now providing them with free online editing tools, nurturing a new generation of filmmakers. Camcorder phones are eclipsing sales of dedicated high-quality camcorders. Over 348 million mobile phones sold in 2006 had a built-in camcorder and in 2007 that number is seen at 490 million, according to market research group Strategy Analytics. Moreover, phone manufacturers have put a video camera in the hands of an age group which previously did not buy camcorders: the young and childless. The effect can be seen on YouTube, where more than 65,000 videos are uploaded every day, most of them featuring 20-somethings rather than toddlers.
