Smartphones are becoming serious video journalism tools

When I first starting working as video journalist with a Sony PD 150, people would say, " that's not a proper camera".  They questioned whether something so small could create useable video and argued that the picture quality was not quite as good as bigger cameras. 
As time went on, they became more accepted.  In fact, instead of being at press conferences as the only "small camera", I would turn up and find one or two over-the-shoulder cameras, alongside rows of smaller cameras like mine.

The VJ model is making more local tv possible

Television in the UK is about to get more local.  The regulator, Ofcom, has started awarding licenses so that local television services can be set up.  They will cover places like Manchester, Nottingham and Brighton.  Whereas the United States has had local tv for many years, it has never really found a place in the UK.  This is partly because of the syndicated model that exists in the US and the way licences are awarded.
