Excellent price for retail pricing... Why can't Poundland be everywhere?
#2
heat added, awsome deal, and I agree with Alchemista :( we dont have a poundland either.
#3
Have you not got a 99p shop either ? Were lucky in the Reading we have a £1 + 99p shop. Great town for shopping.Wouldn't want to live there.

I found JVC MiniDV tapes to be really poor. Probably better to pay a bit extra for better quality i.e. Sony tapes.

Didnt have any in my local poundland today, but its like everything else they will appear on the shelves eventually once the staff get round to it :thumbsup:

sony tapes for sony cameras. jvc tapes for jvc cameras. i've used these for more than 10 years (professional work) and i can safely say ... keep to the same brand as your vcam as they have different tape speeds ... just like kodak prints for kodak film, fuji prints for fuji film.

must say i never buy maxell tapes either, bad feedback. unless of course you're not fussy and update your vcams every year or so.

fantastic price for jvc pity i dont have jvc.
#15
Poundland where everything is a pound, i am always in there am i sad?
Don't answer that.but they do have some good deals.

Seems like it is a standard thing where the staff are concerned. we have the same kind of people in Carlisle, and what makes it worse is that i applied for a job there before it opened. I NEVER GOT A REPLY, do you think i was too thick? or over qualified.

Mmmm!

Anyone seen JVC's DVC tapes in this packaging before? (Compare to Amazon's illustrations, for example).

Jefft, you seem to know about JVC - do yours look like this? If they are Chinese replicas, I can't see the point in spending £00's on a camcorder and even more £00's on a decent TV only to produce dodgy images for £1.00! Bit like that cheap HDMI cable I saw - spend two grand on an HD TV and a grand on an HD camera - then connect them together for £2.50! ???. If image quality doesn't much matter, try a secondhand TV shop and save £1,950 on your telly (and another £2.50 cos it won't support HDMI anyway!)

not quite sure what you mean here...I thought the image was recorded digitally therefore tape speed isn't an issue as such ....surely its not as though if you record on one cam and play back on another the audio is going to be a higher or lower pitch....or the video moves quicker or slower....I must admit I'm a bit intrigued by this possibility...as regards buying on price....you can get the Sony tapes from Amazon for about £1.30 each at the the minute (I just bought 40 of them) last time they were only about £1.20!...I do suggest though, if you are going to use different tapes...stick to the brand you started with...it doesnt necessarily have to be the same make as your cam....as I understand it, you can run into problems withe the way the tape is "lubricated"...and you may "gunge" up your record head...tape cleaner will solve that problem...but best not to go down that route....

merry Christmas everyone!:santa:

that's a good price for sony tapes. i usually get mine from stanley productions in soho (£1.33), or similar companies - but it's only cheaper if you're in london where almost everything is inflated in price, and u want it pronto and were able to offset the VAT (via company).

you're quite right about the lube and mixing tapes – that is the generally-agreed school of thought. As they say, each tape has a lubricant which rubs off onto the cam's heads, and when you mix tapes, these lubricants may interact causing your heads to gum up. The typical result is drop-outs; and if the heads are very dirty, you'll see diagonal, mosaic-like bars in your viewing screen. using the cleaning cassette method should be a last resort, as some brands can be abrasive. best is send it in for servicing, if the camera is worth it that is!

w.r.t. to minidv even though footage can be edited digitally (non-linear) the footage is still physically recorded on tape ie tiny magnets on tape arranged or re-arranged (when re-recording). so it is still susceptible to 'wear and tear'. most people tend to use the vcam not just for recording but also VTR playback, wearing the head down more. slower head, tugging at tape – u get the picture.

another issue is tape run length, which can affect tape thickness. shorter duration tapes is wider than the longer duration as i understand. Thinner tape presents more of a flaking hazard to your equipment and stands a greater chance of wrinkling or otherwise deforming, rendering it somewhat less reliable. that was what i meant about "tape speed" ...

i just find it easier to stick to one brand (usually the brand of the vcam). camera people have our own 'rituals' and 'superstitions' when it comes to recording – if that makes sense.

Old thread but I noticed these in the Poundland in the Galleries yesterday, then bought them out of stock :-D

Not sure if its old stock or what, might be worth checking your local shop again.

I work in poundland um just to let you know that they go like hot cakes in the store im in. most / if not all stores get deliveries every Tuesday/Thrusday/Saturday best time to go in is about 11, 12 we have to shift it all into our "instore" warehouse, then put it on the shop floor..but it all comes muddled up, so products are put out in no order.
And as for staff looking like we get paid £1/ph not far off :p ,long hours , little pay. and dealing with shoplifters can bring anyones mood down.

poundland tends to hire "old" people with no better prospects "young" people with little hope for the future (altho a good stepping stone for new jobs) and agency/ training providers attendies.
