I am a camcorder virgin. All of my experience is in still photography, but the HV20 has gotten such phenomenal reviews, I thought I would throw my hat into the video recording ring. I have a few questions on tapes below:
What tapes are people using?
How important is it to stay with a single tape vendor?
What cleaning cassettes are people using?
Any experience with the Sony or Panasonic HDV cassettes.
I can get Sony for about $7.50 ea or I can get Panasonic for about $5.30 each.
Any thoughts or experiences anyone can share would be appreciated.
