    Hi,

    Are these new Sony cameras that use DVD discs to record on any good?

    Thanks,


    John.

    Good for what? You need some context because they might be good for
    someone, but be completely useless for another. It all depends on your
    needs.

    I've just bought a Sony DCHC22E camcorder and that uses MiniDV tapes. I
    decided to steer clear of the camcorders that use mini DVD discs because,
    although the camcorders themselves function well, I've heard lots of reports
    that when you then put the mini disc into a full size DVD drive they cause a
    lot of problems with wobble. I read somewhere (can't for the life of me
    remember where) that a couple of mini disks have wobbled so badly that they
    have destroyed themselves - and the drives they were in!

    John.

    Yes, we know that you moron, what stuff, the kids playing in the
    garden or the neck box office blockbuster, or somewhere in-between?

    What do you want to do with your recorded video, leave it on the DVD
    as is, edit by just transferring to another DVD via a DVD stand alone
    Recorder or will you want to edit using a computer?

    There are many other questions that could be asked, are you only
    going to use this camera in sunshine or might you want / need to use
    in in poor / bad light etc. etc. etc.

    Stop trying to be the f*cking smart bastard if you want (free)
    help...

    Thanks John - that the kind of useful info I was seeking. I had my doubts
    about them but was unable to find any info on them hence why I came here.

    Well, my telepathy interface wasn't working, hence the request for some
    clarification.

    It won't cook eggs though.
