Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV730 Digital Camcorder
Question: I am planning on playing back some 8MM tapes recorded in 1990on Sony camcorder, not sure what mode I recorded them in. What modeshould I use to play back the tapes on a Sony DCR-TRV730 Digital 8 Video HandycamCamcorders to get the best quality for editing on my PC with MS Movie Maker?
"Note on Recording mode Your camcorder records and plays back in the SP (standard play) mode and in the LP (long play) mode. Select SP or LP in the menu settings (p. 78). In the LP mode, you can record 1.5 times as long as in the SP mode".
"When you record a tape in the LP mode on your camcorder, we recommend that you play back the tape on your camcorder".
In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.
Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.
If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.
