My video cam is giving me periodic grief/errors when using the tape. I was wondering if anyone records to an SD card and if that is just as convenient? If so I wont have to replace the camcorder, they wont cover it under warantee, cuz it was dropped :-(

ruhroh!!! that sucks dropping a camera! what camera are you using? my camera (Canon Vixia HF100) only records to SD. I love it! AVCHD can be a little difficult to deal with. But as of right now its the easiest affordable solution to tapeless workflow. There are really cheap cameras that offer H264 encoding but I haven't seen one worthy of owning. Overall, IMO tapeless is the way to go!

Its a Samsung D363 from BestBuy
I'm used to dealing with the tape in a .wav format I think, I didnt realize the sd card would have a differnt format...out of my realm
Thanks

actually....i don't think it would be .wav format. Thats an audio file.

Your camera captures mpeg4 which is a good standard and easily editable format....i'm not sure what your looking to do. but if your looking to edit you could easily use your footage....i'm not sure what your looking for as far as quality. You may want to look into a new camera and do a little research to find what you need and what you want to do. They are getting rather cheap these days.

Any camcorder that records to tape is not going to record to an SD card(at least not video)

hey rich...check out the one he has. it actually does from what i am reading. It's just low quality.

I wasn't absolutely sure until i read some of the reviews confirming this.

Good point, I should have said won't capture any "tape based" format like miniDV.
