Just wanted to let you know that there are better (and more expensive of course) tapes available from online retailers such as B&H. I generally use these for making my master video. When shooting a project that’s important (like anything needing reproduction), a few extra bucks for top quality tapes is insignificant. Is there a qualatative difference that can be measured? Not sure, but why chance it. My rationale is that I absolutely do not want tape failure and, as mentioned, a few extra bucks for a professional quality tape gives me some re-assurance and peace of mind.
