Sony's DVCAM for HDV Tape was redesigned by their hardware and media engineers, to enhance recording media. This provides a highly durable DVCAM format videotape specifically designed for professional HDV recording.

Targeted specifically toward everyday HD video applications and ideal for dailies, stringer projects or postproduction, the DVCAM for HDV tape offers extremely low error and drop-out rates, high durability and superb image quality.

High durability and high tolerance of DVCAM tape are expanded for professional HDV
The triple benefit of high output/low noise, low dropout and high durability, provided by Sony's Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) protective layer technology, accounts for the tape's low error rate, resulting in consistently high picture quality

      Now the video world has moved to solid state media storage, it's increasingly difficult to source digital tape for my back-up camera. This is just the product, and the price from B & H was the best I have seen anywhere in the world for several years!

        Comments about Sony PDVM-41N/3 DVCAM for HDV Tape:

        I've been using DVCAM tape for years. It is more expensive then MiniDV tape but it is better quality and the fact that it moves faster, leads to less frame drops and issues.

        I always use Sony brand in my Sony Camera.

          Tape functions and has similiar if not the exact same quality as Sony PDVM-40N tapes. You also get approximately 1 minutes of extra recording time too.

          Comments about Sony PDVM-41N/3 DVCAM for HDV Tape:

          This is the workhorse of DVCam tape for my Sony PD 170. I've never had a defective tape and been shooting with it for four years, training films and more recently documentaries. I recommend making the tape shell out of white plastic and selling these with a black marker so you can write tape identification info directly on the tape shell thus bypassing the little sticky labels. It would streamline the tape identification process, especially when one is changing tape quickly in the field.

          Comments about Sony PDVM-41N/3 DVCAM for HDV Tape:

          I have been using DVCAM tapes for about 4 years on a professional level and have never had a problem. I have even recorded twice on the same tape (though I don't make a habit of it) with equal quality both times. Only objection is the length of the tape when used in DVCAM mode.
