i have sony hd dvd camcorde use d/layer disc,s get 55minutes use second from highest quality setting get 27 min on single layer dont know where you 14 minutes from? On the second from top quality i cant tell diffrence from top quality even the lowest quality pic quality is just as good but can stutter with fast action shots as all hd recordings are at 1080i even the low setting is far higher quality than any standard def camcorder .You can get a lot more on dvd in hd than you can in sd as hd uses mp4 rather the mp2 for sd recording never found the dvd recording times any problem real good buy voted hot dont worry about it been dvd format also disc,s play back in most blu ray players inc ps3 andthe discs are quite cheap

Cracking price for this, H&R! We've got the HF100 which has similar specs and the picture is amazing at 1080p/30fps. The quoted record time of 14 minutes on an 8cm 1.4gb DVD is based on the highest quality setting of 12mbps, which sounds about right. I could only find 1 in stock anywhere near me and that is at the Acocks Green branch. I reserved it just in case any fellow Brummie HUKD'ers who want one are having a lie in ;-) PM me for the reservation number :thumbsup:

PS. Found one in Leamington Spa too - PM for reservation :-)

But having to wait 1minute for each disk to format at the start and finish of each 15 minute recording?
If you want good quality HD at cheapest price, OK, but I think this would turn me crazy.
I think I would rather a digital camera capable of 'HD'.
for example:

You dont have to finalize the disc after recording you can do it anytime, the only reason you finalize the disc in the camera is so that you can play back through a normal dvd player. You can just pop it out and stick another in and start recording again and finalize the discs when you get home or when you have the time.

Personally i think this is a better deal (bar getting a HF100), since i would steer clear of these record on mini DVDs camcorders : http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/324862/canon-hv20-hi-def-1080i-mini-dv-cam

Can't argue that this is a better camera, but not sure if it's a better deal - it is over £100 dearer :whistling:

I still think that £240 for a hi-def Canon with quality optics and superb image processing is an absolute steal. Also, it seems you can use dual layer DVD-R's so that would give 24mins recording at full HD, which isn't too bad. Still gets a :thumbsup: from me!

I reserved 1 in Glasgow area if anyone is looking for one. PM me :thumbsup:

From a review of it , where else do you think i got it from ?

it said

Unlike the HG10, however, the top data rate is 12Mbits/sec, which Canon calls XP+ in this case, rather than the 15Mbits/sec HXP available with the hard disk model. This will have a negative effect on image quality, and is presumably a result of using DVDs for storage. Aside from the necessity for a DVD drive with a faster writing speed, the 8cm DVDs used only store 1.4GB of data, which even at 12Mbit/sec is enough for just 14 minutes of video. An 8cm Blu-ray disc would offer a much healthier 7.5GB, providing over an hour of storage

you can record for about 55min on DL disk at realy hight quality ie short play mode tons better than DMCFX37
highest level is no better than sp mode and sp mode recordes neary as long as normal
S/def dvd camcorder but quality is far better than normal DVD.I have never found recording time a problem you can even record a lot longer with 2 other long play modes and the picture qualty does not drop much unlike dvd standard def dvd camcorders wich are realy bad in lp mode

good but LOW ON THE OPTICAL ZOOM

You twisted my arm, just brought slr few days back now this!! I'm gonna end up opening a studio at this rate, nice one!
#16
NICE deal !
#17
14 minutes of video per mini dvd!! That sucks! Going to wait for a deal on one of the hard drive or SD card ones.

This is still a very good price for this camera, but those limitations are just too much.
#18
Hold on, can you use the mini SD slot to record HD video onto?

i have the sony hdr 3ux tried all the HD record modes canot tell difrence on the 2 top modes ie
and can get about 55 mins on dl disc with no apparent loss of pic quality(tons better than SD dvd) all the HD modes are 1080i even lowest with gives a lot longer recordings than in SD dvd record mode .Does not seem to drop pic quality in hd modes but at lower bit rates fast movement can stutter a bit .In sd dvd mode pic quality is far worse LP is not very clear
