Blank, Black, restripe are


Blank, Black, restripe are all references to recording the used tapes front-to-back with black in order to establish a contiguous time code on the tape. Sometimes, not always, when reusing a tape from the beginning, particularly one that wasn’t recorded all the way or straight through, when the tape reaches the junction where the original recording stopped and fresh, virgin tape starts, the camera’s recording system could get stressed out trying to figure numbers, causing dropouts in your recording. Another thing is when a tape was recording and the camera was shut off, or power loss mid-tape during an emergency battery change, etc. All these little moments in life cause gaps in code, creating the potential for messing recording quality. Something like that, anyway πŸ˜‰
