    These tapes won't produce the same kind of quality that the pro mini-dv tapes do, but they work great if you have a lot to shoot.

    I mostly just shoot conferences and interviews, both of which end up going on the internet, where quality is compressed and reduced anyways.

    These are pretty good for weddings as well. There isn't that much more noticeable from the average viewer's perspective, so most of the time people won't notice. Where the pro stuff comes in handy is grabbing still frames and having them at a crisp quality (part of which is also due to your camera).

    The labels that come with the tapes are also fairly large enough for me to write the time, date, and title of what we are shooting. Sometimes other tape brands just give you a long bar to write that all on.

    The tapes also come with a hard plastic case which I like better than the soft plastic ones.

    "Knock on wood" Out of almost 200 tapes, not a single dropped frame yet.

    Overall my only complaint (and me being very nit picky) with them is that the plastic wrapping on the cases is a bit tedious to get off, especially when you need them quick and are trying to be quiet at the same time.

    Mini DV Tapes

    I use this product to record instructional materials and a K-12 TV show. For the price these tapes aren't bad. I still prefer a Sony version of this mini-DV tape.

              We use these tapes to shoot polo which is fast in all kinds of weather and all sorts of light and the resolution remains perfect!
              The tapes ride around all day in a hot bag in a hot or cold car and seem unaffected.
              The only bad thing is you need good fingernails to open them and it is harder in the cold.

                      No manufacturer wants to make a product that fails. These tapes have NEVER let me down. No drop outs or glitches, and it's digital so there's no such thing as better or worse picture quality. Digital means on or off. You either have a picture or you don't. At any rate, these tapes are fantastic. I have some from 10 years ago that still playback fine. In fact, I could probably even re-use those old tapes! Don't get hung up on perceived value. You won't regret using these tapes.

                            These cassettes are used for our surveillance footage. We havebeen using them for years because of the dependability, smoothness and lifespan. We know technology is slowly fading out tapes and advancing to memory cards, but as long as these little treasures are in production, we will be purchasing!

                                Although we are phasing out cameras using tape, we still have 3 that we use weekly. After experiencing miserable results with high priced HD tapes, I purchased these. I was amazed with the quality! No drop outs and at the price, I normally purchase 10 per week. It's hard to beat $ for 10 tapes!

                                      Have been using these tapes for about 7 months now. On a recent vacation I had only 1 drop-out in 5 hours of recording (Canon Vixia HV40).

                                        Tape has become a dinosaur, but it's nice to still have this option. A reliable performer.

                                          I love these tapes. I never have any problems with them.

                                          I shoot on a Canon GL1
                                          and a Canon XHA1

                                          I have been using them for over 10 years. Great product, great price!

                                            i know there are better overall mini DV casettes but a tape is a tape so for my snowboard independent movie i am producing of myself, i waste a lot of film and have a lot to shoot. so when i'll do a bigger prodution and less amateur, i'll buy better quality that are 5x more expensive mini DV cassettes from your store. Thank you very much :)

                                              Hundreds of students a year use these tapes in DV and HDV cameras and decks with very few problems.
