Mini DV tapes - which brand do you recommend?


Standard Member
I have just bought a new Canon MV930 Mini DV camcorder for my forthcoming holiday. This is my first camcorder, so I was wondering which brand of tapes you would recommend.

I was surprised how cheap the tape so reuseability is not important.

I'd recommend them to, and at that price I've just bought five packs! :)

just needed a few and paid £14.99 for 5 at the Sony Centre :eek:

BUT i did get a free dv head cleaner and a demo of the new HD hd recording camcorder

Thanks for the advice :thumbsup:

I went ahead and bought the 10 pack from Amazon and also got a good deal and a 3 pack with head cleaner.

I couldn't find a better deal (inc. postage) on Ebay or any of the sites recommended on previous posts.

Yes - you just need to make sure you choose ones direct from and not one of the various resellers. (The link in this thread is the correct link to the one).


wow, I recently bought a 5 pack from Argos at nearly twice the price of the 10 pack!!:mad:

Thanks for the link though as I've now bought 20 to make up for it.:smashin:
