Thread: Losing Frames..

  1. Default Losing Frames..

    Hey there, I was not sure where to post this, I just put it here.

    I recently got into Wedding Videography, and it has been goin good thus far. I recently noticed that few of my MiniDV tapes lost a few frames in the ACTUAL TAPE (not in the capturing.) This is information I cannot get back. I am lucky that in previous instances, these frames were not too important, however if the tape decides to skip during the vows or anything I am in deep trouble.

    The Camera I use is the HVR V1U, and the tape that skipped on me this week was the FUJIFILM 60 MiniDV tapes

    Amazon.com: Fuji 4 Pack 60-Minute MiniDV Tapes (DVCM604PK): Electronics

    Are there certain tapes or certain things I can do to prevent frames from dropping? Thanks in advance guys!

    I've used those Fuji tapes aswell and had problems with them, so it's not just me. I stick to using Sony's tapes and they have been problem free thankfully so far. That's also a reason why I'm taking a camcorder that records onto memory card (Canon HF200) to my sisters wedding in a few months time. As you say you don't want this happening at important events that can't be re-recorded again. How old is your HVR V1U?
