Wouldn’t running the tape


Wouldn’t running the tape through the camera at FF or FR put more strain on the heads than running it through at the normal record speed?

no, but then again, I haven’t retensioned tapes since working with analog systems. The Mini DV cassettes are very small and have a “ratchet” sprocket on them that keeps the tape from being unwound when not in the tape transport. I have never had a problem with time code issues because I use quality tapes in my cameras and usually experience a single frame drop out very infrequently.
