      I’ve read that it isrecommended to record color bars at the beginning of each new tape during a shoot for colorconsistency.

      Anyone with experience on this that can shed more light into it, does it work, how long to record the bar, etc. I am shooting a dance recital in HD 1080i using Sony FX7, and planning on using Sony miniDV tape (also wondering if using the Sony HD tape will make a better picture?)

      as far as bars, I only find them useful to calibrate my monitor. I assume that if you are changing tapes during an intermission, you wouldn’t have to worry about color consistency if you don’t turn the camera off. A generated set of bars will always look the same, but your video that you shoot could differ…. see my point.
