How long recording time with a dv tape in canon zr70mc


That obviously depends on the length of the tape. With an 80 minute tape, you can record for 80 minutes in SP mode or 120 minutes in LP mode. With a 60 minute tape, the numbers are 60 minutes and 90 minutes.

Sony DCR-TRV510 Playback Blank or Choppy


I recently had similar problem. Sony Phone tech support was very helpful. The answers were strange. You need to make sure the cameral is turned off, unpluged and take the battery out for at least 5 minutes. (something to do with reseting firmware). That sort of worked when coupled with there last comment which was to RECORD about 15 seconds and play it back. Mine was instantly healed!

Video is good but audio is bad..


It could be that the audio head may need to be adjusted. Sometimes they shift during shipping. Any camera store should be able to adjust it for you.

Is there a better (brand) tape to use with a Elura 90? I read somewhere that certain tapes had more problems than others. Thanks, Joe


One thing that can change the tape quality is making sure you are using th 60 minute recording mode vs the 90 minute EP recording mode. If you record alot, you should clean the tape heads every 6 months as well. I haven't really found any bad tapes out there (I'm sure there are some). Usually Sony and JVC are good choices to use.

Adapter question


There are no such adapters that would allow 8mm, Hi8 and Mini DV tapes to be played in a VHS VCR. Only the old VHS-C tapes can fit and play in an adapter. There are several reasons why 8mm (or Hi8 and miniDV tapes) cannot be physically played in a VHS VCR: 1. 8mm (Hi8, miniDV) is a different format with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with current VHS technology. 2. 8mm/Hi8 tapes are 8mm wide (miniDV is 6mm wide), while VHS tape is 1/2" wide, making it impossible for a VHS video head to read the taped information correctly. 3. 8mm/Hi8/miniDV tapes are recorded and played at different speeds than VHS, so even if the tapes could physically fit into a standard VHS VCR, the VCR still couldn't play back the tapes at their correct speeds. 4. 8mm/Hi8/minDV audio is recorded differently than VHS. 8mm/Hi8 audio is recorded in AFM HiFi mode, while miniDV audio is recording in 12-Bit or 16-Bit PCM digital audio format. So, even if the video could be played back in a VHS VCR, the audio could not be read properly. 5. 8mm/Hi8 video is of higher resolution than VHS and is recorded in a different bandwidth length (miniDV video is recorded digitally), so once again, a standard VCR still could not read the information correctly, even if the tape could fit into a VCR.
