          Comments about Sony PDVM-12CL Cleaning Cassette (Small):

          I have done a lot of research to be sure I had the most reliable and efficient setup for my Canon HD XH-A1 and XH-A1 s . I have found that the Sony tapes to be completely skip-free and the Sony Cleaning Cassette to be the perfect way to make the transition. They last for a long time and keep the camera recording smoothly. I also use a Sony HVR mrc1k compact flash recorder on one camera WITH Sony tapes to be absolutely certain I get the footage no matter what.My only warning: I dropped a bare cleaning cassette tape on concrete, put it in the camera, and received a warning in red telling me to remove the tape immediately. So... handle with care. I had to throw that one away.

                Not bad at all. I have two Sony dvcam decks and this little cassette gets them nice and clean prior to starting a big capture job.

                No negatives so far...

                        After having used my DVCAM about 20 times I thought the video quality was still good. But after buying this head cleaner and using it; the next video came out even clearer. It is a must have for preventative maintenance in my opinion (along with a nice lens cloth).

                            The mini cassette is the same length as the larger standard size, but for less money, so is a better value if your deck will take it. It works like it should in my Sony HVR-1500.
