Panasonic HDC HS9 v HG10

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by yepthisismyemail, Aug 15, 2008.

  1. SO I bought a open box HG10 that went onsale online only. I am now
    returning it and buying from the same store online ata big savings.
    The Panasonic is only 50$ more? It records at a higher data rate
    17mbps v. 15mbps. Also the Panasonic has a optional DVD burner that
    hooks to the camera. TOast takes like 4 hrs to burn a dvd from AVCHD
    files. ( unless I am doing it wrong, can u burn as a data disk?) Any
    thoughts is it a smart move?

    My pleasure helping you Ian! The link describing this drive is at:

    The page above has a link on the lower left side of the page to the 30 page
    owner's manual, which you can download as a pdf.

    This owner's manual on page 7 shows that the total recording time varies
    from 10 to 40 minutes based on which type of standard or high def disk you
    are trying to burn, and which recording speed and disk type (single or
    double layer) is being used.

    Please consult the table at the bottom of page 7 for the complete burning
    time required you specifically are interested in.

    Hope this helps,

    Also consider Ian that unlike Toast or most other PC software solutions,
    your AVCHD high def disk will NOT be re-rendered or transcoded, thereby
    giving you an exact copy of the video content with no degredation
    whatsoever. This is a very important feature for AVCHD in particular, which
    otherwise would take both rendering time and image quality penalties when
    AVCHD disks are burned.

    wait for the new HG20.
