Hope this is the correct section, if not my apologies.
Just seen A Mini DV Tape Rewinder by Hama for sale at Amazon.
Just wondered your views on these as I have seen on other forums that tape rewinders (Not Hama) are very dangerous to use.
The reason they give is that my cam (a Sony PD 150) has a sensor that slows the tape down before it reaches the end of the tape. Whereas basic tape rewinders don't and therfore the sharp tug at the end can snap the tape.
So just wondered if anyone knew anything about these new Hama ones.
Thanks for looking.
