Diane, I like the Panasonic digital that uses floppies and super disks. As
for the floppies not holding many images, they are easy to change and it is

two hour tapes. That way when we were editing we did not have to search
through two hours of footage to find what we wanted. We simply picked up the

Also I like my Panasonic better than the Mavicas at school. There are fewer
steps involved in everything. Not only that I used Panasonic equipment with
middle and high school students for eight years. I have no complaints. That
is why I bought Panasonic when I bought.
