I have used panasonics advanced master miniDV tapes (AY-DVM63AMQ) which I just tried to order from B&H, but it turns out they've been discontinued. Bummer. I was wondering what is the best tape to switch to. B&H recommends the AY-HDVM63AMQ, but another store recommended the AY-HDVM63MQ (Advanced Master Quality vs Master Quality, I believe.) I'm going to assume that I could switch to either without risking a bad reaction (ala switching to sony tapes), but ....
I was wondering if any of you all had any thoughts on:
· Which would be the closest match to the old, discontinued tapes?
· Which is the better tape?
· What is the difference between the Master Quality and Advanced Master Quality in the first place?
