Digital video cameras are part of the evolution of multimedia digital products that have positive applications for educators, students, and industry. Multimedia digital video can be utilized by any personal computer and it allows the user to control, combine, and manipulate different types of media, such as text, sound, video, computer graphics, and animation. This paper examines the familiarity and use of these educational hardwares among business education teachers. Based on the affinity that younger teachers have for incorporating digital cameras and soft-ware applications into their curriculum, one conclusion from this research is for administrators to focus on seminars and training of educators that have been teaching for more than five years. The survey also found some differences in the use and comfort level among teachers of different ethnic background.
