I use Sony tapes in my HDR-HC1...
(this is an 8-pack) You can get them cheaper at tapestockonline.com in quantities.
Just don't re-use tapes. Shoot; remove; lock; insert new tape.
What is the best MiniDV tape to use for recording HD video on a Canon HV20? I ordered a couple of Sony High Definition 63 minute tapes from Amazon with my camera order. The cost of the tapes came to about $7 each. Should I be looking at any other brands or grades of tape?
Sorry for starting another thread today, but I thought it would be a good idea to keep this topic separate from the other.
