We've used Sony premium miniDV tape in our FX1, before the HDV tape was available. It worked without dropouts. When we tried some TDK tape, we had a lot of dropout problems, which also resulted in loss of sync between the audio and video. You might be able to get away with using cheaper tape, but dropouts will cause you enough extra work and breaks in your video to more than make up for the extra cost of the tape.
