The Sony PD-170 does not r


The Sony PD-170 does not record nor play in LP format. Check the manual it states it in bold. In any case you’d still want to stick with SP regardless. LP is much more prone to dropouts and frame loss as well as degradation. Stick with 60min or less tapes and just practice a system of changing the tapes. When I do events that I figure might run over 60min, I’ll time myself for how long it’ll take to change the tapes. I also use more than camera. This gives you a little bit of breathing room as well. PD-170s are great cameras. I’ve never regretted buying one
