An American drugstore chain hopes to start selling disposable camcorders for US$30 each, plus another $13 to put the 20-minutes of video onto DVD, a one-hour service.
The camcorder is designed by Pure Digital Technologies of USA and made in China, and has these specs:
- video stored on internal memory with 20 minutes max
- can delete scenes.
- 1.4 LCD screen, but no connectors for external viewing.
- five ounces.
- no zoom.
After you hand back the camcorder, the drugstore makes the DVD, and then erases the camera's memory. Would you pay $43 for 20 minutes of video?
