Being new to videography I've been reading every thing i can about the subject, and one thing thats got me concerned is a tip i read in Digital Video mag.about tapes. I was told to "stripe" the tape before filming which meant ,keeping the lens cap on and recording a black film !!
Picture the scene-- Im going to video a wedding and say im going to use 10 tapes ( 10hrs ) if i stripe the 10 tapes =10hrs then record the 10tapes=10hrs then download the 10tapes to PC = 10hrs then end up with 1hrs film how many hours filming can i expect to produce before i have to replace the recording heads or worse the camera
My Cam. is a Canon XM2
