Peter BurgerCleaning Tapes
by on Oct 24, 2011 at 12:05:59 pm

After about three years of usage my Sony V1 camcorder displayed the message to use a cleaning tape. Since I read a lot about claning tapes wearing the video heads, I'm a bit cautious. But having had dropouts the last time I was recording, I think it's eventually time to clean the heads.
Since I use DV-tapes for HDV without any problems (of course always the same brand: Sony Premium), I'd like to know your opinion:
Is there a difference between cleaning tapes for DV and cleaning tapes for HDV?
It's not the price difference that holds me back from buying HDV-cleaning tapes, but the fact that no local store has them in stock, I'd have to order them. Problem: I have an important shoot in two days and I don't want to risk any more dropouts...

Any advice greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
