TAPE STOCK PREFERENCES for HD-100

I heard we should stay consistent with tapes- use one and keep using it.

But which one?

I heard JVC, since the camera is JVC.

I heard BASF.

What about this new Sony tape- the PHDVM63DM,
anyone use that yet?

All opinions welcomed!

I'd stick with the JVC Pro stock (ME) or Panasonic (MQ.)
I stay away from Sony stock on non-Sony cameras because of their proprietary lubricants.

Keep JVC tape in a JVC camera. Their prices seem to be the most reasonable on the market anyway.

good luck.

JVC doesn't really make tape right? I think they just re-brand somebody else<#s tape. Just like I heard Pansonic tape is just re-branded Fuji tape.

There are only a handful of factories in the world that manufacture MiniDV tape, my supplier told me 2, but I don't know if that is true. All brands come from those factories and are packaged accordingly. It happens in almost every line of manufacturing.

I had heard/read that as well. Let's put it this way, don't mix Sony tape with anything else. You can buy a block of JVC's for really cheap (and try it out) or you can get the ProHD tape.

Yeah, I heard there's Sony, Fuji and somebody else, which I forgot. So I wonder if the JVC ProHD tapes are actually Sony HDV tapes.

As I say from the beginning, get JVC tapes for your JVC player. Don't take chances with the head getting contaminated by mxing tapes.
