want to record my flights in the field

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I really want to record my flights in the field and will observe what the camera sees. I don’t have laptop computer or video camera. Can I use the "Mustek PVR-H140" or the "Archos DVR AV700"?

Can you recommend on a cheaper way to do that?

Thanks

Itzik

The PVR-H140 is now very old, and pretty expensive for what it does (besides recording video, the software is awful, even uneasy to use as a MP3 player...).

From what I've heard, the AV700 has issues for field recording as the cradle is required in order to use the AV-in, and it has to be externally powered!

The AV500 is very good if you want to put the $. Otherwise the Cavalry player mentioned in the other thread is a cood cheap solution, the recording quality being a bit lower.

Hi Kilrah,

Thanks for saving me from buying the PVR-H140, I almost did that.

I'm watching the eBay since last time and I didn’t find any AV500 for good price.

Now, I can buy for a better price the new released AV604.

What do you think? The recording quality.

Thanks

Itzik

Film Director, please look at that!

Hi,

I have never had one of the new series in the hand so can't tell how it performs.

Just be aware that if you want to record video with it you have to buy the optional input "travel adapter".

Bromont video was recorded with Archos AV500, expected same quality, but at a lower price than me ;)

Hi guys,

This is my first film. :D

I used laptop, it is not convenient and there is a holdup between viewing and video recording.

I'm planning to get the Archos 604!? Hoping it will solve my problems.

Thanks for helping me out.

Does it have video input ? If not how can we use it to rcord directly on DVD.

That second one has no video inputs. It's an external CD writer that writes to CD-R and CD-RW disks, but also includes a memory card reader for transferring directly from a memory card to a disk.

The first one though looks pretty nice. It's got all these inputs plus a memory card reader... It also record to DVDs rather than just regular CDs.

Video recording inputs - USB (for HDD/DVD Handycam connection), Digital Video (DV), S-Video, Composite Video, Analog L/R stereo inputs.

yes, the First one ( sony ).

Its not more expensive than Archos av500. The extra cost will be the DVDs disk, but you can get a DVD-RW disc to recorder more than one times, the sonyVRD-MC1 support it. mmm I am thinking get it seriusly.
