Re: Are x-ray safe?

Your film, maybe. Some sources say that you'd have to run your film through -many- Xray machines to even begin to fog it, but many traveling photographers say they've had film fogged or ruined this way. Better to have them physically inspect your film rolls. Just tell them you have film and don't wish to run the risk of it being fogged, and would they please manually inspect it. Your camcorder, highly unlikely. FYI, some photographers were puttting their film in lead bags. But some airports have Xray machines that step up the power if they cannot see through something, resulting in guaranteed fogged film.

Re: Are x-ray safe?

X-ray machines used for luggage that you check in are NOT film safe. X-ray machines for carry-on luggage ARE considered safe. You should keep camcorder and film in carry-on luggage.

How can i convert tapes to dvd


You can connect the Camcorder to the Computer using A/V interface to transfer the recordings to Computer.
Once you transfer the recordings from tape to computer, you can use any burning software to burn the recordings to DVDs.
In order to capture the analog videos, you can use the Windows Movie Maker available in the Computer.

HD writer will not write to disc


I just used HDWriter today to copy a film I took from a new Panasonic HDC-HS250K to DVD. It took about 30 minutes to complete, and the movie was only 1 Gb; about 5-10 minutes of HD. I used a Memorex DVD+R that I happen to have from a couple years ago. The video looks very good played back on my PC or HD TV using a regular DVD player (not blue ray). I don't happen to have any other DVD except for the 2 sided which I hate to use for the short videos. So in looking to buy some more I'm concerned that DVD-R might not work so well. I've read some conflicting reviews about that. Anyway just wanted to let you know that the DVD+R worked fine.

Camcorder in safe mode won't eject tape either


Remove the battery and let the unit rest for a few hours, try again.Tap the tape door, the tape may have become lodged. If this doesn't work then you will have to send it for repair.
Safe mode is to protect it from any more damage.
