Wonder if anyone could help me with this - I've got a SONY camcorder which has used Panasonic tapes throughout its life. I heard that I better not mix Panasonic tapes and Sony tapes since they have different coating and lubricants.
Now, if I want to clean the camcorder tape head, does it matter if I use Panasonic cleaning tape or Sony cleaning tape? I haven't used a cleaning tape for quite a while. Should I clean it every once in a while, or should I wait until it's dirty to clean it? Thanks!
