Does speed matter ? you can only record in real time.

speed does matter, as it records in real time. If the speed was faster then the recording will be much more efficient I would have thought. I would browse around the web for that model and take a look at the specs.

The only info i can find on speed is improving the burn not the recording, unless you are going to edit it and burn it back to another small disc. You would be better burning it to a full size disc in your PC. Burn speed only really matters if you are doing loads of copies and want to save time.

Hi, are you sure that the supplied discs are 2x and not x2 - I know on the face of it this looks silly, but I have just read the on-line report on this cam and it does mention that x2 discs come with the kit, but does not mention any speed.
