Tapes

My DVX-100a came with Panasonic "Advanced Master" DV tapes. I've been reading that we're only supposed to be using "dry lube" Panasonic tape. Question is - will Standard Panasonic tapes "off the shelf" muck up the heads? What type of tape should I use, and what should I avoid?

I use SONY Premium which is a WET Tape system and I have had zero problems in 250 hours.

I've been using the Master quality tapes for about 190hours now, not any problems what so ever. They cost about 50% less than the Advanced master. I only use pana tapes in my cameras(dvc30 and a cheap sony cam as the "stunt camera")

Buy one brand and stick to that one brand in your camera. Changing brands (and mixing each brand's proprietary lubricant) mucks up heads.

Thanks!

Thanks guys, I think I'll stick to the advanced master's I've been using and not switch ever is good advice.
