    I know there are straight to DVD camcorders, but most are smaller discs and
    feeling like I have more options with better cameras, I'd like to stay DV
    (or maybe D8).

    I need to record live video to a DVD with separate chapters representing
    different segments. The DVDs will be swapped out between such recording.

    Would like some info on whether newer (I last purchased in 2000) camcorder
    have the analog or digital out that run continuously without the camera
    necessarily recording (my old D8 times out and requires the camera to be
    recording). Basically just want the camera to output the signal and I'll
    record outboard. A 3CCD (new Panasonic?) is certainly in the mix as I'll be
    in poorly lit rooms -- will they output as above?

    Also, most DVD recorders seem fine for the task, but their footprint is
    rack-mount size. Is there a carry-on friendly size DVD recorder (I note the
    new DVDirect from Sony, but only analog inputs)? Or are the DVD cameras
    decent? Can the DVD cameras record multiple segments without closing the
