    Good Value

    I use these tapes in an older prosumer Sony HDV camera. It is best for the tape mechanism of a camcorder, to stick with one particular tape. This tape is not the top-of-the-line Sony "digital master" but it is genuine HDV. This means that it is less likely to have dropouts than if you use non-HDV tapes in your camera.

    I use the tapes in a small Sony HD camera. I have been shooting with these tapes for two years and haven't had a visible dropout yet. These tapes are amazingly consistent. I rent my camera out to a few local producers and they have found the tapes consistent and reliable as well. I've been a professional news and sports cameraman since 1976-before tape-and you can depend on these tapes.
