DO NOT EVER use a mini-dv


DO NOT EVER use a mini-dv rewinder.

They do not have the tape’s tension monitor and do not sense the end of the reel like a camera does. The rewinder stops when it slams the tape to a halt at the end. You could easily see the leader come off the hub and then you would have a useless tape in need of repair, or worse a broken tape.

I should WISH that I have enough business that wearing out a camera would be a problem.
