    Sony BCT-40HD/2 reviews

    BCT-40HD/2 HDCAM Videocassette, Small is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BCT-40HD/2 HDCAM Videocassette I used this to make a film festival submission copy of a a Final Cut Pro project that was DVCPRO HD 960x720 with a frame rate of 23.98. The output looked way better on a proper monitor playing off this HDCAM tape than it did on my MacBook screen. I like how rich and deep the blacks are, compared to other tape formats.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BCT-40HD/2 HDCAM, Gets the Job Done If you want a safe and high quality way to back up your media in a secure non-digital manner, this is the way to go. Analog may be going the way of the dodo for most things, but as far as a tangible piece of storage is concerned you cannot ask for more. Highly recommended.
