Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

Just in time for the release of the first Blu-ray camcorders, Imation announced 8 cm BD-R (recordable) and BD-RE (re-recordable). To be sold under the TDK brand, the discs offer 7.5 GB storage space, which is enough for about 60 minutes of 1080i video.

The BD-R version carries a suggested retail price of $25, while BD-RE will be priced at $35. Both versions are expected to hit store shelves sometime in September or October.
