Interesting.
They appear to be "write once" though. Which is kind of a step backwards in my opinion.

Although I can see it being more exiting for someone like yourself Mark, who has to maintain a ton of AV in long term storage. Like my caption winning Christmas card, for instance. I refuse to take mine down off my fridge.

And I still keep your partially-eaten cookie on my desk.

Ants be damned.

That would be cool. Since about 1999 we've archived our digital photos for that year. First was on to a CD, and then two CDs, and then a single layer DVD, then dual layer, then 2 dual layers, then single layer blu-ray, and now that we added our digital camcorder a few years ago, I am burning about 4 dual layer blu-rays a year. I haven't done 2013 yet, but I am not looking forward to it since we jumped up mid year to a 21 megapixel camera.

I have these backed up locally on an external hard drive (that keeps getting swapped for bigger drives) and the discs get sent to my in-laws for "off site archiving."

Sad thing is that we have so many pictures that keeping them identified and sorted is a pain, and honestly on the video, we never go back and watch anything.
