The Panasonic AJ-P126L DVCPRO Video Cassette (Large) is a 126-minute recording tape used primarily for newsgathering. The tape is 1/4 the overall size and 1/6 the weight of the standard 1/2" video cassette. It incorporates high-output metal magnetic particles which have made downsizing possible while delivering superb picture and sound quality. The tape has excellent tape transport stability and outstanding durability. A tough cassette shell and sealed structure assure durability, and prevent entry of dust or other particles into the cassette. The cassette also features a reel-lock mechanism that prevents tape sagging, and a slide-type erase-prevention mechanism to protect against mishaps.

The tape will work in the following formats: DVCPRO (25), DVCPRO50, DVCPROHD and DVCPROHD-EX.

DVCPRO 6.35mm-wide metal particle digital tape with 126 minutes of recording time is used for newsgathering.
It delivers significantly higher output and lower noise than conventional MP tape. The key is an ultra-fine metal magnetic particle that is less than half the size of previous metal particles, but has 70% more energy.
An ultra-flat base film and advanced calendering techniques give the tape an ultra-smooth magnetic layer surface that eliminates spacing loss and micro-dropouts. This results in both low error rates and a higher C/N ratio, even in the high-frequency band.
The tape has a binder that uses a high polymer, which helps to protect the magnetic layer and assures excellent durability---even with repeated usage and still playback.
A tough cassette shell and sealed structure assure durability and prevent entry of dust or other particles into the cassette. The cassette also features a reel-lock mechanism that prevents tape sagging and a slide-type erase-prevention mechanism to protect against mishaps.

            We use these all the time, they're great. I've never had much trouble with these tapes (until they get old). I HAVE had trouble with other brands though, so I always stick with Panasonic tapes.

              We use these tapes with our Panasonic Varicam and find them to be incredibly reliable. We have used them in extreme cold weather as well as extremely hot and have never had any problems with them.
