I got a comment on the tapes from a person who will likely participate
in the camera and editing crew:

If we record to tape just in case, then at least we will have a good
quality recording for postprocessing. Not to mention a comparatively
cheap backup, should anything go wrong with the rest of the system.

Remember that it doesn't have to be done this year. If we gather
snippets here and there, then we will have a video library to draw from
when someone does step up to do it.

In order to make all this light-weight, I suggest we do record on tape
and during DebConf we will probably have a chance to sit down and think
about where the tapes can be stored safely and how we can provide the
material if and when someone does want to do something with it.
