Calling Steve Nunez

Or anyone with a DVC80. I was looking at the specs on B&H and it said maximum recording time 60 minutes. I downloaded the brochure and it says both it has LP recording for up to 90 minutes. Is that correct? Also has anyone use 80 minute tapes with the DVC80?

Thanks Dave.

David,

Since B&H is a reseller and would likely make a mistake more readily then a major company like Panasonic, I'd just dismiss that 60 min max rec capacity as a mistake....I believe the recording capacity is limited to the mode you select and tape capacity. Since the manual states it can record up to 90 min in LP mode I'd go with that!

(Hey David- you can always look into the new Quickstream DV and other tapeless direct to disk units and you'd be limited to the capacity of the drives which can be well over 3 hours!!)

Thanks Steve. I just wanted to know from someone who actually uses the cam to verify this. So you have never tried an 80 minute tape? BTW I canot justify the expense of a Quick stream unit right now.

David,

I have not tried an 80 minute tape- I didn't know a tape in that capacity exsisted til you mentioned it- I thought only 30/60/90 minute DV tapes were out.

If I'm not mistaken I believe the preferred recording time is 60 minutes for the prosumer crowd.....this would of course mean using a 60 min tape in SP rec mode.

How are you liking your DVC80......I'm finding it's low light abilities just spectacular....the camera is simply amazing in it's color rendition and sharpness...I don't know why anyone would consider a PD150 or 170 or VX2000 etc with this DVC80 being out there....it's just simply awesome...for 60i video I think it's near unbeatable!
(more zoom would be perfect but I guess we can't have it all)

Enjoy your DVC80 David.
