How to use
Because the use of DVD digital camcorders is different from Mini DV, the following is a brief description of how to use CD-ROM DV: Before shooting, first insert the DVD disc, The first thing to do is to initialize the disc, and use DVD-RW to rewrite the disc. During the shooting process, there will be two formats of shooting: DVD-Video and DVD-Video Recording. No matter which storage mode is used, the "disc seal" operation must be performed after the shooting is completed, otherwise the disc cannot be played directly on the DVD player.
VIDEO mode (DVD-Video): Discs burned in VIDEL mode can be played directly on most DVD players, but cannot be edited directly on cameras and computers (you can edit the format after software conversion) , Suitable for novice users who do not edit videos often.
VR mode (DVD-Video Recording): Discs recorded in VR mode can be used to edit video directly on the camcorder, but not all DVD players are compatible. Suitable for users who can edit videos.
The biggest advantage of DVD digital camcorders is "shoot and play", which can be played quickly on most DVD players. Moreover, DVD media is currently the most secure and stable media among all digital video cameras. It is neither as easy to wear out like tape DV, nor does it have very demanding requirements for shock resistance like hard disk DV. Once it is damaged, it will suffer heavy losses. The disadvantage is that the price of DVD discs is slightly higher than that of tape DV, but it is not far behind; and the recordable time of a DVD disc is relatively short.
