    I've been using a Panasonic HS-2 dvd recorder to burn my dv camcorder footage instead of my computer. My question is, how
    much footage can you burn onto a blank dvd at the highest quality possible; 1hour?, 30 minutes?, 20 minutes?, and is the footage of high quality as the original? On my Panasonic deck I can burn 1 hour of footage at what they call the
    highest quality setting, which is the "xp" speed. The deck has slower speeds of recording but the quality goes down from there.
    The footage I've burned at the xp speed is pretty much identical
    to the original, in my opinion. I know that you can do a whole lot more with the computer, but I was wondering if anyone else uses
    a Panasonic deck like me. Thanks, Tunes Man.

    I use a Panasonic deck E30 for DV camcorder footage. I always use the XP mode usually. If I want it nicely edited

    That said, I still wouldn't record over my DV tapes, so the DVD medium is just a nice more convenient way of watching your footage. If I want it properly edited, I'll edit in in Premiere first on the PC then export ot back to camera and then record in onto DVD from there.
