Re: the camcorder toy

I thought this camcorder thingy was released somewhere in the early -90's 
I saw a few TV commercials for it half a dozen years ago. I saw it at 
Toys-R-Us next to a Sega Genesis bundled with the Sega CD.

Subject: Re: "Vinyl Video

There were a few recordings made of some Baird TV broadcasts. There was an 
article in "Electronics World" (Brit electronics magazine) last year. The 
author played the recordings, and then manipulated them with a computer to 
produce some images, in the process removing speed variations.

Of course, this wouldn't be "Vinyl Video", but "Shellac Video".

Importance: Normal

I got pretty excitied when I read the message saying American Science and 
Surplus was selling the CED players, they get large amounts of stuff, 
often unopened, and I went to their website at 
<> and searching for CED or RCA didn't 
bring up anything, and looking through the entire electronics section of 
their site yielded nothing. I wish they were selling them, I would have 
bought one.
