    I was recently asked if I owned a digital camera. " I did ,but it was a few years old",was my reply. I didn't realise, but the camera is almost 12 years old. My next thought was, whether I had any spare tapes just in case my friend still wanted the camera. Well, they did want the camera and I rushed to purchase tapes for it. Even though the technology might be older than the new digital cameras on sale today. The camera worked well and the tapes recorded in crystal clear HD, I was actually surprised the tapes were still on sale. Any way,I was very happy with my purchase and I will continue to use the camera and tapes in the future.

    If you're like me still using a few cameras requiring mini-dv, these cassettes are the way to go! I'm using heavily used canon gl2s, and other tapes just don't hold up! The film rips on rewind! This tape is tough! Holds up! Captures the best high definition footage on a tape... Only things I have experienced is the occasional drop frames during capture, but I can't quite connect that to a flaw on the tape as much as I can connect it to either the tape deck or computer.

    I read reviews that this had the same quality as a Blu-ray. I have a Canon XL1s and I used Sony Premium tapes, I tried these HD tapes and they were basically the same quality. It's grainy, not 1080 like it says, and it's no different than the Premium tapes except the $9 difference per tape. It's not worth your money if you have a Canon XL1s. Please save your money. I've used a Panasonic tape (80 sp 120 lp) and this has been, so far out of these listed, the best quality.

    Outstanding Tape

    This tape has a very durable design, easy to use, highly compatible and produces great video. This is the only tape I will use with my canon XH A1s. I never experienced drop frames. The picture quality is just as clean as blue ray. I compared a blue ray movie to the footage I recorded and the footage on the tape was just as clean as the blue ray movie.

    this is pretty much the way to go if you have an hd miniDV camcorder. Ive been using these tapes for a couple of years now and its pretty much the only reliable way to record in in minidv HD. Ive tried using regular miniDV tapes but the image drops in and out, its really annoying. best buy is the only major retailer tha still carries them in my area.

    Mini DV cameras aren't being sold much anymore so I was glad they still carried them because I was in a bind for a wedding. Just wish there was an SD option to save some money or provide tape for those who don't have HD Mini DV cameras. This may have just been at the store I was at, I'm not sure if other locations offer them.

    We used these HD tapes for my daughter's volleyball tournament and the quality of the images was great! They are a little pricey, will probably be looking into purchasing a digital video camera soon, but for now, these worked great!
