I must be make of NTSC DV tape, a backup copy on NTSC. But it seems as if in America (or Asia?) Acquired 60 min NTSC DV dubbing to the tapes are not available in this country 60 min DV tapes - is not synonymous with NTSC-compatible devices in the NTSC format - to because they seem to be longer - and indeed even longer than 80 minutes. Can it be? How much longer are NTSC tapes if necessary?
Can one get DV tapes, where the contents of a full NTSC DV tape on it fit?
What can I do to restore the backups if the copying of each an NTSC DV tape on two local tapes would become too complicated and expensive?
Or spins only the counter of the local NTSC-compatible devices, where they show a tape to get that was recorded on an American camcorder? And it would fit at least a 80 cartridge?
Please urgently for advice

Another addition: Meanwhile, I've heard that my NTSC-DV tapes were probably recorded in LP mode. The VCR to my copy service SonyDSR-11P can indeed accommodate NTSC, but only in SP mode.
My hope now rests on the Z1E HDV Camera, which is synonymous NTSC capable. Perhaps it will succeed by copying the LP-recorded tapes 1:1 ... Does anyone of you, whether is it? Respectively. in Hamburg, where I can still do it if needed (except Centric)?
Antwort von Markus:
MiniDV tapes run in a "PAL" drive "with almost the same speed (18.831 mm / s) as in an NTSC-drive" (18.812 mm / s). NTSC-M (see NTSC vs. Japan. NTSC-US) has a frame rate of just under 30 fps and thus delivers more frames per second than PAL (25 fps), but it has the NTSC frame not such a good resolution. While stored on a PAL MiniDV tape 12 tracks per full frame are needed, the "smaller" NTSC-Picture only 10 tracks. The belt speed is therefore practically the same.
To copy the tapes were recorded in long play, is of course not so nice. This lowers the compatibility with other devices may significantly MiniDV. The DSR-11P can not but standard play (DV and DVCAM recording) and play. - How was it in the Long Play NTSC-recorded tapes played so far?
An Idea for dubbing when a division of the images on two MiniDV tapes is too expensive and Long Play (not recommended) is not possible: Draw the long-play recordings easily on a full-size DV on tape. There is enough room for oversize MiniDVs.
