There's not really much to know. Most cameras will disengage the tape from the head/drive mechanism to protect the heads. Even your old VHS vcr did this. On the original XL1 the camera turned off after 5 minutes of tape inactivity. We all hated it. The XL2 does the same but gives you a choice to only have the tape disengage.

I would think that other than cleaning you should not worry to much about the heads and wear on them. Unless you are filming 24-7!
