Thread: Head cleaning?

  1. #1

    Cool Head cleaning?


    Hi
    Wondering.
    How often to clean cam heads?
    I run a 10 second head cleaning tape through the cam at the start of each days filming.
    Is this overkill or not enough.
    Your thoughts please
    Albi.

    ERrr... total overkill.

    really.

    Your manual should tell you when to clean heads... if you haven't got that - look on the manufacturers website for info.

    Just to expand on Thurston's post. Head cleaners have an abrasive action and thus cause serious wear on the heads. Not a good idea to do it more frequently than necessary.

    Thanks to you both. A slight overkill on my part.
