Sony introduce 8cm DVD+RW discs

I admit to being a bit puzzled by this, mainly as I know nothing about the digital camcorder market.

Is it the case that the camera recording mechanism was always been capable of recording to -R and +R/+RW, but that the discs just haven’t been available, or is it that people will have to buy a new camcorder to take advantage of the +RW format?

AFAIK, only the new range of Sony camcorders record to +RW. Previous models recorded to 8cm DVD-R or DVD-RAM.


Shame its not +R as well, reminds me of my first philips DVD Recorder, The
DVDR1000, Started of as +RW Only!

Maybe the next Gen will be +R/RW Support!
