These are excellent tapes but please be aware that there are three different types of tapes and if you mix them, you risk damaging your video camera.

The three types are:
1. Sony

This review is from: Sony DVM60 DV60 Mini DV Tapes for camcorder - Pack 5 (Electronics)
These are excellent tapes but please be aware that there are three different types of tapes and if you mix them, you risk damaging your video camera.

The three types are:
1. Sony
2. Panasonic/Fuji/Maxell/JVC/Canon (as Panasonic make the tapes for Fuji, Maxell, JVC & Canon)
3. TDK

Sony uses liquid lubricant. Panasonic uses dry lubricant. TDK uses Metal Evaporation technology.

If you mix the tapes, the mixture of dry & wet lubricant can clog the tape transport mechanism.

So, it doesn't matter if you use Sony, Panasonic or TDK tapes - but stick to the same type.

Although not specified for HD use, I've always found the Sony tapes work well in my HD camera and have suffered very few drop outs.
