Does the manual say what the quality from the memory stick is?? How many tapes can you buy for $150 and how much recording time will all the tapes give you? John
I recently bought my first digital camcorder, a Sony PC-350. Obviously one can record videos on the tape or the memory stick (albeit not much on the memory stick included with the camcorder). Nothing in the manuals indicate a preference, except to note that recording on the stick will be in mono, as oppposed to stereo on the tape (and I could care less if my kids' screams are stereo or mono). Clearly downloading to PC would be much easier from stick than 1:1 tape playback into the PC. My question is this: Other than having to pay $150 for a 1G stick to have enough capacity, is there another reason that tape would be a preferable recording medium.
