This 8mm VCR provides up to three hours of recording on a single compact 8mm videocassette (using P6-150 in high-quality SP mode). Sony's Flying Erase head allows noise-free picture transitions when recording or editing. Use the skip/scan function to drop in and view the picture during high-speed fast forward or rewind. This one-button convenience feature quickly locates specific segments on a tape. Locked picture search lets you scan in forward or reverse without having to hold down the picture search button. Commercial skip automatically advances the tape 30 seconds at the touch of a button. Frame-by-frame advance/reverse helps you find your exact edit point. This VCR is also wireless remote-capable for easy, armchair control of VCR functions when used with any Sony Handycam remote control or Sony universal remote.
Hi8 recording system captures more than 400 lines of resolution.
