      I have a love for making videos as im sure everyone else does on this forum.

      I have recently purchased a Sony Vx2000, i love it and was wanting some advice on how i can protect my investment for atleast a couple of years and get the most out of it.

      Right now, i have a uv filter for the lens, a good padded aluminum case. Im was just curious on what other options i have to make the most out of what i have and most of all make it last?

      I also have a question for anyone who might be able to answer, i shoot right now 2-3 times a week because of my heavy work sched. My question is, should i leave the tapes in there during the down time or should i take them out in between shoots?

      If you took the time to read this, especailly if you take the time to respond thanks in advance for helping me along.

      yeah, i know sonys are tough that heavily influenced my desicion in buying this camera.

      Before this one i bought 2 cameras prior because i am young and really wanted to be sure that i was serious before jumping all in on a high priced camera. I bought a consumer sony(hi-8) first that was in 2000, then maybe 2 years ago i bought a panasonic(mini-dv) and my sony hi-8 still works great despite the torture i have put it through, while i took decent care of my Panasonic that is completely on its last legs of existance.

      I just want to make the most out of it, while i start to buy the tools i need for post production and finally get some videos out there to share.
