New soon to be owner of gs100k, which tapes?

I know, I have done a search but you guys lose me with the techno bable =). I bought the camera from pricejapan, and it was shpped today. This is strictly just a camcorder to film whatever =), vacations, hangin out and anything along the way. I am a total rookie, have no previous camcorder experience to talk about.

Which tapes are the best? I wold like to pic some up before my camera gets here.

Thanks and sorry for the lame question.

-Chris

I don't know for sure, but from what I've read, and from pros I know, and from my own experience, I would have to say Fuji. But like I said, I don't know for sure.

It's just called Fuji miniDV tape. I believe they only make 1 type, but I've heard that in Japan you have a choice of a couple of colors with the cases. http://www.dvfreak.com/tape.htm

I all ready bought nine Fuji tapes. I don't know anything about tapes but Frank seems like a good guy so I took his advice. When I get my professional camcorder I hope I will be able to understand how it works without too much trouble.
