Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Sonia C  What is the video record time on this product? And can you use a wireless mic with this?
Helen O  Shooting time varies depending on quality (1920 x 1080 30fps 96kHz 24bit: 15m, 44.1kHz 16bit: 17m, 1280 x 720 30fps 96kHz 24bit: 20m, 44.1kHz 16bit: 30m, 640 x 480 30fps 320kbps 44.1kHz: 1h, 256kbps 44.1kHz: 1h). The LS-20M has a 3.5mm input jack to connect to an external microphone.
Shopper  How can I transfer my recordings to my dvd disc using my dvd recorder?
Andrew R  If you're attempting to make DVD movies (not just transferring files to a blank DVD +r) you will need to transfer the video to your computer and then use movie editing/DVD authoring software to compile and burn the resulting DVD (there are several packages available from a variety of publishers that can do this).
Sonia C  Can you use a little tripod with this product? If so, do you have a link to one.
MANUEL C  Yes you can use a mini tripod with the LS-20. There are several out there to pick from. The Monfrotto and Giottos models are very good and built well. I don't have a link for you but I did purchase the Giottos 5081 here at Adorama, and it serves my needs, small, stable and not expensive.
