1. Just averages, not EXACT!!! After awhile you'll learn that motion and sound changes the length of time you'll get. But for comparison... MiniDV usually gets you 60 minutes, but look at the tape and there's the time.
Big DVD-RW is 2 hours but depends on encoding. I can push more than that. Sony Camcorders with DVD recording is getting about 20 minutes.
Hope this helps.
1. What is the max continous recording time on the DVD-RW disc say on a Sony DCR-DVD201 vs that on a MiniDV tape on a Sony DCR-HC40?
2. How does the media changing time differ i.e. inserting a new disc vs a tape?
Thanks in advance,
