    I've been trying out the latest Hitachi DVD-RAM handheld camcorder - very nice.
    http://dvdcamstore.hitachi.com/kore/...A/product.html
    It uses 8 cm DVD-RAM discs in a disc cartridge, but the media is removable from the cartridge. The Hitachi instruction manual says it uses DVD-RAM Book 2.1 compatible 1.4 GB discs (per side), at 30 minutes a side. (The Book 2.1 standard didn't exist until late last year.)
    Would these work in the Panasonic RP91? Unfortunately, I can't test the disc out in my own player since I live in a different city.

    Yes, it will work in the DVD-RP91.

    I will buy a disc or two then to try them and bring them back with me.
    Thanks.
    P.S. The Hitachi can put both stills and video on the same disc, and has both a standard video mode and a fine (DVD quality) video mode. I wonder what all of these will mean to DVD playback on the RP91.
