Thread: DVCam tapes do not exist?!!

  1. #1

    Default DVCam tapes do not exist?!!

    HI Gang,

    I really need your help. I own a Sony PDX10. Great. But where on earth can I get the DVCam tapes to go in it? I have trawled the net and can only find 40minute long tapes. I need at least 60minutes or more per tape. I went to my local Jessops who said "Google it". I told them I already googled it and didn't get anything. Ebay too is useless.

    So can anyone out there be kind enough to tell me where I can get PDVM tapes for my camera. I need the small size not the "Large" tapes.

    Please help!

    Thanks

    Have managed to find some answers myself.

    However I would still love to hear from those who know the best place to get DV and DVCam tapes.

    Cheers
