In 1998, after more than 25 years devoted to wildlife photography, I was loaned a video camera.
The virus was inoculated and, despite the inherent difficulties of computer editing 24 years ago, hours of shots, first in 4:3, then in 16:9 filled gigabytes, then terabytes over several HDDs.

We soon forgot that the first edits on PCs were done in quarter VHS images, and that, shortly after, the calculation of a cross dissolve of one second in SD definition took up to a minute.
Then came HD, and now 4K, absolutely superb, but requiring powerful computers and considerable storage space.
