Source for Sony Premium tapes in the UK
 
can someone tell me what the cheapest source for Sony Premium dv tapes is? The cheapest I've found so far is Amazon (and sold by amazon) at about 1-32 each including delivery.

TIA

To be honest... regarding drop outs, the worst experience I ever had on the XH A1 was with Sony Premium tapes. My feeling is that the A1 doesn't like Sony's too much. At least not my camera...

WE have just completed a 40 hours captation project using Sony Premium, with the Canon A!. Not a single drop out.

That's a really good price.

Amazon haven't been doing them at that price for long, I know because I checked recently. And ended up getting 9 tapes and three cleaners from e-bay.

Before now I've been getting 100 at a time for 2 each.
I'd snap them up at this price. In fact I will.

1.33 each, how cheap it this.

I think it's the luck of the draw: some A1s do and some don't.

My A1 doesn't like Sony Premium tapes either. I have taken to using their HDV tapes (5 times the price) rather than risk dropout at a vital moment.
