PXL2000 – Alive and Well


Any one remember the Fisher-Price PLX2000 video camera? Yeah, it’s the one that recorded a smaller than normal sized video image (gutter boxed) onto regular audio cassette tape. It was meant for kids but it soon found a following with video artists all over the place. I used to have a few of them, one I even modded to have a direct video out so the picture quality would be better because it could feed into a regular VTR directly. Anyway, I was tooling around the backwaters of YouTube yesterday and discovered that some people have uploaded and tagged footage from these cameras. I have a link here so you can see the classic camera in action. If you have any footage, and you can still play the tapes back on your camera, you should upload them and join in the fun.

YouTube – tag ‘pxl’
