    I am a professional Legal Videographer and my reputation is at stake everytime I record a legal video on my video camera. These tapes have never let me down and have come to rely and depend on them to give the best recording possible under a variety of conditions. I also do other types of videography and I have found that they are my choice for product shoots and corporate and business testamonials as well. The only thing I don not care for, which has nothing to do with the recording quality, is that they can be a bit hard to label, especially if you have a lot of info to get on it.

    good tape

    good tape had a lot of dropouts, for more important events use a better model tape, fear of dropouts.

      I decided to spend more and I'm glad I did. The Sony mini-dv cassettes keep jumping and buckling. Not having that problem here.

                    For many years, I used the MQs by Panasonic, which are much more expensive. For the last few years, I've been using these. From my limited experience of about 100 MQs & PQs, I don't notice much difference, so I stick with these. I'm entirely satisfied.

                      They got shipped here fast - Thanks B&H ! I bought these becuase they have a good reputation for no drop-outs - which I'm experiencing using old tapes.

                        As we continue to phase out taped based workflows, Sony and Panasonic continue to provide top quality tapes for media applications. My personal experience is that there has been no technical difference between the two brands. These Panasonic tapes physically appear more solid and "professional" than the competition.

                          As much as I hate working with DV, I must say that these tapes can give you a very clean crisp image if used correctly with your camera. I used it to film a live musical on a two camera setup and it gave me very good picture quality, something I wasn't expecting.

                                    I am a professional underwater cameraman and I need something that delivers. These tapes do. In hundreds of tapes I have had maybe only one or two incidences where I have had some frames dropped during recording. For this price I can't fault them.
                                    B&H always delivers them safely to me so the service is excellent too.
                                    Thanks

                                        I have used over 200 of these tapes and I have never had a problem with them. No dropped frames. No warbling of audio. No loss in video quality. These tapes are a videographer's dream. High quality at a very good price. You can't go wrong!

                                            This product is used to tape monthly meetings and events.
                                            I love the fact that you can get 90 minutes of continuous taping.
                                            It is very easy to transfer to a full-sized DVD.
