HC1E take so long to turn on and REC.

Is this normal that it take 8 sek to start and before it come to rec.
Turn on take arond 2 sek and when hit rec button it take about 6 sek befor starting to record.

If i have it turned on in Stanby. Sometimes it take 5 sek before it records, sometime it start with the same.

I use Sony dv premium. Is it better and faster with a HDV tape?

re

Sometimes take some seconds in starting to record, only sometimes, to turn it on, mine always do instantaneously



Other thing, I think there is not HDV tapes, the tapes to record HDV are always miniDV.

The tape used won't make the slightest difference Arve. Use the cheapest tape that doesn't give you dropouts.

This start-up delay has been mentioned before. It's to do with the MPEG 2 compression, I'm sure, but I can't figure out why it varies so much. Maybe something to do with the space between I frames.
