      I buy these tapes for events that i expect to last for more than an hour. Even if an event is due to run just under an hour, sometimes things change. If you don't have a cut away while changing tapes you might lose something valuable. Better safe with 80mins than sorry with 60.

      I use this in My Canon HV30. I never use a tape more than once, so its pretty much Record to tape, capture to computer, put on the shelf. Other "HDV" tapes are probably Higher Fidelity, but for my needs in basic videography, it does the job.

      I went to Kenya to film a documentary, 80 minute tapes are the way to go however these gave me poor quality in the first 5 minutes. Lost some important footage in those first few minutes regardless of pre-recording. If you have time then these are fine. If your on the go DON'T buy!

        A little more expensive than the regular 60min tapes. I bought it to use as a tape for the b-roll camera and didn't want to worry about it running out at the same time as my a roll tape. Worked fine. I've been using the 60 min versions of these Sony tapes for years and never had a problem.

              When you only get one chance at a shoot it is important to have tape that not only has no dropouts but does not run out too soon. The extra record time and reliability of the Sony DVM-80PR captured our Sri Lanka mission trip flawlessly in HDV.

                        These are great if you need longer time for a specific show. If you want something captured from start to finish and the entire show is 60 minutes long give or take, then these can potentially save you from having to change tapes mid show.

                          I use the 80 minute film to video tape a wedding ceremony. Catholic masses are usually longer than an hour, so for that reason this is an excellent product. The film quality is exceptional.

                                very little to no drop outs after 3-4 minutes into and 2-3 minutes before they deplete. I noticed (when capturing with my camera) continuing drop outs but it was the deck, not the tape, getting hot after capturing 3 tapes previously. Best thing to do is to stop capture, let deck/camera cool down, then continue. No drop outs thereafter

                                      I am a wedding videographer and I sometimes need a little more time than the standard 60 min. tape. I have never had a problem with these tapes

                                              I use this product in professional video shoots. I have not experienced any drop outs as is common in the lower grade tape stock and picture quality looks great. Only thing that would be better is if they were 90 minutes.

                                                    I bought these as an alternative to the 60min becuase I had some shows that were running long. So far I can't tell a difference in the two.
