    Comments about Sony BCT-40SR/3 HDCAM SR Videocassette, Small:

    I purchased this tape to transfer my super 16mm film to the digital domain. The quality is great (better than a Pro Res file). I had access to a deck so it was an easy decision to back up to HDCAM SR. I highly recommond transfering to this format if you're looking for a cheap DI for film. It's got great quality and it's still safer than a harddrive for archive purposes.

        Comments about Sony BCT-40SR/3 HDCAM SR Videocassette, Small:

        THese tapes are great for doing segmented recordings of football games. If someone is looking for a given event it is easier to find on the shorter tape. Conversely you have to carry more tapes around with you.
