I know what you mean I have both systems but the quality of my older camera is so much better when filming in doors. A ten pack should see me through until I can afford a better all round digital system.

Bargain - normally buy the panasonic pro tapes but at this price its a no brainer...... should keep me going for a while and these are digital and will currently give far better HD quality than any compressed solid state format IMO

Err...not true. I have a Canon HV20 which happily uses these and produces stunning full HD pictures.

Good price.

It amuses me to hear things like that.

It's like the Betamax v VHS when all the pros used and some still use Betamax as the cameras are still working and kicking out broadcast quality.

One note of warning... it is not recommneded to mix different types of tape

Stick to a brand and keep with it, yes they will work but it's to do with tape residue on the rec heads long term.

These would work great in a HVRV1U but don't have the £2500, tape is still very much alive and kicking but not at the consumer end of the market.

That's exactly why I went for the HV20 as opposed to any of the flash storage HD cameras. The compression ratio used on the tape storage machines is lower than on flash. End result is a better picture.

My HV20 still kicks the ass of a mates 3CCD Panasonic HD flash camera on picture quality, the only real advantage he has is quicker access to the individual clips. None of that tedious spooling backwards and forwards.

Bare this in mind if using these tapes in certain camcorders as I made the mistake of using TDK tapes in a Panasonic camera and buggered the heads up!

Most mini-DV tapes are made in the same factory,
There are only 2 Tape OEMs: Sony & Panasonic
TDK are TDK.
MiniDV tapes are made by either by Sony, Panasonic and TDK.
Sony uses liquid lubricant
Panasonic uses dry lubricant
Panasonic makes tapes for: Fuji, Maxell, JVC, Canon
Sony makes for the rest.
TDK are on their own since they have their own ME (Metal Evaporate) Facilities.
In other words, mixing these 3 brands will clog the heads.
why the manufacturers hide this, I really don't know.

I found this out the hard way.

Stuck with Sony tapes for ages in my Canon MVX460, then was tempted by some very cheap TDK stock. Not many tapes after this, all sorts of issues which crippled the camera. Quite a few cleans later it still has not recovered fully and is too unreliable to use. :( If I'd have knows the real issues surrounding mixing brands then I would've heeded the advice and kept to one. But I took this like most others to mean "hey only buy our expensive tapes..." - and let's face it they do this all the time - a bit like crying wolf but with a different victim. Why don't they just confess why it is and then we'd at least make an informed choice.

Saving for a new one.

Still unconvinced with flash based solutions, esp when you read comments like above re. encoding etc.
