Well I received delivery of my new Panasonic RA-82 this morning from BE-Direct.co.uk . The main reason I bought this was to compliment my E-30 recorder so being able to edit ram discs on the E-30 and then dub from the RA-82 to DVD-R. I've only had a quick play but first impressions are not great. When playing back a Ram disc the picture freezes momentarily on an edit point, very disappointed as it's obvious and annoying. I tried editing out sections by using the divide function and this seemed a touch better. The next thing I tried was to edit sections out via a playlist, as in not actualy delete the portions just playlist around them. This last option gave the best results but it was still noticable. I'll have a further play and report back. Paul.
