SP or Standard Play is the slowest recording speed option on camcorders. The other faster speeds being LP (Long Play) and EP (Extended Play). Even though you will store less video per tape using SP speed, it will be of a higher quality and more fault tolerant (resistant to video and audio dropouts) than LP or EP.

The best camcorders with SP recording speed though also come with the other recording speed options like LP or EP so that you can shoot at a faster speed in case you don’t have a lot of tape left.
