Sony released the first consumer camcorder (Betamovie BMC-100P with Betamax cassettes) in 1983.

From Wikipedia (with references there)

The first VCR to use VHS was the Victor HR-3300, and was introduced by the president of JVC at the Okura Hotel on September 9, 1976

Video technology was first developed for cathode ray tube (CRT) television systems, but several new technologies for video display devices have since been invented. Charles Ginsburg led an Ampex research team developing the first practical video tape recorder (VTR). In 1951 the first video tape recorder captured live images from television cameras by converting the camera's electrical impulses and saving the information onto magnetic video tape.

Video cameras?  Philo T. Farnsworth, circa 1921.

There are umpteen possible answers to this, depending on what you mean by 'video camera', do you mean the scientific theory that led to the first television cameras? do you mean the evolution to the recognisable technology using vidicon tubes?  Do you mean a ccd based portable camera recording to tape? Do you mean an all in one device camcorder?

All good answers so far depending on what you mean.

It is appropriate ton separate the acts of

1) Converting an (optical) scene to an electronic signal
2) Recording the signal

IMO, (2) is irrelevant. You totally can have a "video camera" without having any means to record the signal. You still have a video camera, for, for example CCTV for remote viewing. Applications include viewing inside dangerous or inaccessible spaces (pipes or nuclear reactor chambers), and security. I'm sure there are many others. Early TV broadcasts were transmitted live, because there was no means of recording the signal and playing it back later. (Or if there was, it was not practical or economically feasible.)

So I'll agree with Farnsworth or Baird. I don't remember who did it first.

Why ask here, instead of google? or any other search engine? What compelled you to ask this question here? And are there any follow up questions?
