Longer Duration Tapes?

I need a miniDV tape that is longer than 85 minutes. Anyone out there know a good place or do they even exist?

They don't exist in the miniDV formfactor. You can store lots more time on a standard DV cassette but that would require a different recorder.

Depending on your applicaiton you might be able to rent a Firestore or nNovia type DVR to get the longer record times you need. You could export the footage back out to tape from your edit system for an archive.

Thanks y'all. I just need to get 1:31:09 onto a miniDV tape from Premiere timeline...looks like dual layer DVD will be the solution.

Longer Duration Tapes

You could output LP if MiniDV is the only option. I did that for a two hour film to play at a film festival since they didn't accept DVDs. It worked out very well.

Used an 80 minute tape on LP last night. 2 hour runtime total. Seemed to work... :)
