Most reliable Mini DV tape ?

What Mini DV tape is the most reliable for Audio and Video, I heard one was as good as another, is that true?

Thanks, Dan O'Bannon

Panasonic Master series (white box) or Sony Mini-DVCAM (works in any Mini-DV camcorder). These two are the best of the best.

Chris, just to confirm, will Sony's mini DVCAM tapes work in a VX2000? The tape supplier I buy from has them, but I wasn't sure if they would work.

Hi Paul -- they sure will -- you'll get 60 minutes instead of the 40 stated on the box. DVCAM tape is the best way to record DV using Sony media.
