One of the issueswith DV Decks that many people forget is the max storage capacity of the deck.

MiniDV is great for capturing in most applications. It may not be so great when it comes time to save your final production. The second it runs over about 83 minutes, you are faced with a problem. Either save your production in chunks or ...?

Furthermore, if you need to send a master tape out for duping, you are again limited to 83 minutes and change. If you need a 2 hour master, you cannot get there.

That's why a DSR-11 may be the correct choice. That and the fact that it has industrial-quality mechanics and electonics.
