Since the recording is digital, things like S/N ratio and bandwidth shouldn’t be a factor. Either those little 1’s and 0’s are recorded or they aren’t. But a poor quality tape might tend to have tiny bits of that magnetic recording coating flake off the tape and clog the record head. I suppose enough flaking-off could result in drop-outs. And a cheap tape might tend to stretch with repeated use. I don’t think there’s any need to match the brand of tape to the brand of your camcorder. But a higher quality tape would probably mean less headaches.
Just my 3 cents worth. 🙂
