What’s in a name anyway..?

Per Jared at Cinema 5D, shooting video with a DSLR now has a formal name.  Ready..?   It’s not HD-DSLR, it’s not Video DSLR, it’s HDSLR.  Thanks for formalizing it for us Jared.  Your assertion has given HDSLR Shooter the legitimacy it deserves!  Here’s what Jared had to say:

“This has been driving me crazy for quite some time. I post as often as I can on the news section her at Cinema5D. I have tried to go with the flow on the name of the still cameras that shoot video. I think we started with Video DSLR, than HD DSLR and now we have started using HDSLR. I think it’s about time we settled on this damn thing once and for all. I think HDSLR is just fine. It seems to have grown organically with the cameras that were once called “Hybrids”. Not a very nice name. Video DSLR’s are too video sounding. That went away pretty fast. Then we got all serious about it and called them HD DSLR’s but that does not really sound cool. HDSLR’s is pretty cool. It is fairly correct. High Definition Single Lens Reflex camera is what it is, after all. I hope that still works when it shoots 4K. Or will it be called HDVHS?”
