Facts About Sony DVC60PRL Mini DV Tape 60min Premium Data Cartridge 10 Packs
It’s in a blue package, but the mini DV cassette is black. 60 minute Premium quality.
If there is any difference, I can not see it. I’ve used the dvc60prl for years in both Sd and HDV cameras and the less expensive tape works great.
The best way to figure out the type of "tape" necessary for your device would be to check the recorder’s owner’s manual.
Another way would be to check with a local camera store, bringing the recorder with you. They would quite easily be able to affirm the correct type of tape for your recorder. … The best way to figure out the type of "tape" necessary for your device would be to check the recorder’s owner’s manual.

I think (don’t know) most "video tapes" are frequently quite similar.
You might ask the question about the type of tape on a Google Search query.
Don’t know the answer to this question.
I believe the SONY VX1000 did use MiniDV tapes, yes, but please get a further confirmation before buying.
Don’t know the answer to this question.
Hi, I don’t use the DVM63PS, and I will say I have been shooting with the DVC60PRL and the like for over 8 years and no dropout or problems.. But not familiar with your camera, I use the sony workhorse, GL2 video camera and it’s been excellent. Test one and see is my advice.
They will work on any camera that has the mini DV logo
I used Panasonic tapes in my XL1 for years, because that’s what was recommended by the sales rep, and everything was good…I also used a few Sony and TDK tapes, and they worked fine too.
Hi. They are not 8mm. They are miniDV. So your camcorder have to state that it is a miniDV camcorder. Thanks.
yes the sony dvm60 mini will work in your sony mini camcorder. Enjoy
no , no problem pretty much is the same tape diferent wrapping.
I’m not sure about a JVC. I use them on a Canon ZR50 and Sharp VL-NZ100. The manual calls them "Digital VCR Mini DV video cassette."
They are both 60 minute mini-DV cassettes, and will both work in the same applications. The exact technical specifications of each I couldn’t tell you, but at this point if you are looking for a tape that will fit your Mini-DV camcorder, either one will do the job.
Don’t know the answer.
Info About Sony DVC60PRL Mini DV Tape 60min Premium Data Cartridge 10 Packs (Reviews From Amazon)
Well, to be completely honest, I didn’t want to write this review because it’s a simple tape, you insert it into camcorder record video and no problems.
I have been ordering this brand and so far I didn’t have any problems recodring or playing back from them. I record in HDV on HDR-FX7 camcorder and never had a problem with them. I like to keep all originals so I have more than 20 tapes. It may not sound a lot, but for me it is. I can play back a tape from 2-3 years ago and it works great. One thing I noticed is I think one of the reviewers said that you don’t want to mix different brands. I used maxell and these one’s and one time I got "dirty head" warning and my camcorder turned off. I was Extremely frustrated, because I was in the process of shooting a wedding and these events cannot be re-recorded at more convenient time. Finally, i got it working again…miracle.
Anyways, the reason I said that short story is because I learned my lesson about using different brands, and since this one never gives me trouble, I’m sticking with these tapes when I run out because they are pretty good.
Another very important point is when you record HDV, sometimes you can get short freeze with other brands, it even says in my camcorder manual that it’s normal and part of nature of recording on tapes(i know go figure, right?), but with these ones VERY rare.
Bottom line… recommended product, will buy again if i need more.
Some video techs say that if you use one brand of tape in a Video recorder then you should never use another brand, because the other brand has different oils and metals. Honestly I don’t know if that is true or not, but what I do know is that these tapes are great, and I would recommend these to anyone using a tape video recorder.
When I shoot video tape, I use a lot of them. When I get busy it is not uncommon to use 20+ tapes a week. I never reuse them, so keeping cost down and finding them locally is important to me. Well I used to get these tapes at Costco years and years ago, before I had an Sony HD video camera. Well I feel in love with these tapes ( never had a problem with one of them, and I have used over a thousand). So when I upgraded to HD 1080p video, I started doing a lot of researching on what type to use. Well a lot of people used these tapes. So I continued using these tapes for 1080p and I loved it. Now I just order them on Monday morning, using Amazon prime, I get them by tue for a few dollars, and I couldn’t be happier.
Works with HD
Works great in my pro level Sony gear
Great all around.
These are the ONLY tapes my son will put in his Sony VX1000. We’ve been ordering them for years, and they have never let him down. When you find something that works… stick with it! A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. When you’re capturing moments that you won’t get a second chance to film, you want a tape that you can trust 100%. This is that tape.
I worked in the TV industry for an entire career, and we always used Sony professional cameras. Long ago, I decided I liked Sony quality. I’ve tried all kinds of mini DV cassettes, and for my money, you can’t beat Sony! With other brands, I’ve often had dropouts and glitches, and sometimes they just won’t be recognized by the pro camera, or will track badly, jam, and create all kinds of problems. The Maxwell cassettes are the worst, and Panasonic aren’t much better.
For my money, Sony Premium Mini DV cassettes are top of the line – AND this is a great price.
Be careful who you get these from. I purchased them from Continental Supply (through Amazon) and I received 10 loose tapes in a box that could fit 30, with no packaging. Really? You are going to send me delicate items that have small plastic pieces in a large box and just let them all bang around and into each other? There is no excuse for that.
But these are the tapes that I use to run a student television program at a University. I for one abhor mini-dvs, but we have to utilize what we are given. But since I have to use them I buy these every time because I know they will work (apparently even after being shipped irresponsibly). I wish everyone else would use them too because some buy terrible tapes and gum up the communal tape decks. For those that don’t know, tapes have their own version of STDs. These tapes are not the ones causing them to begin.
Buying in bulk online has helped to cut the cost of our show, which is otherwise basically just web based fees, by quite a bit.
UPDATE: I purchased more of these being sold by Photoland and I received 2 5-packs. Much better than 10 loose tapes.
I have used them all and these last. I have maxwell, sony, jvc and Panasonic from 2001 and all of them except for sony has tape problems. Maxwell and jvc both are curling, Panasonic will stretch and crinkle, but I haven’t had any aging problems with my Sony mini DVD tapes. I did get some HD Sony tape which are also great, but were a bit on the pricey side. These basic sony tapes record had just fine have stood the test of 10 years. I just hope they haven’t changed their formula or contracted out to jvc to make them.
Its simple. Over the years I have shot with every brand of tape and every tape format from pro level 1″ Type C and 1/2″ Betacam SP to home formats like VHS, Super VHS and now, Mini-DV. Most name brands are good. Some are excellent. Sony is both — and consistently both.
In the production process, tape is the least expensive but in many ways the most important item because the information recorded on it is the culmination of ones day at work. And when you are shooting an event or story that you cannot go back and do-over, consistency of quality counts. And that’s the reason I tend to use Sony.
Sony to my is the most trusted brand in mini DV tapes. If you have an emergency, and you go to the store and pay fifteen dollars for three TDK tapes (as PC Richard does, they do not carry Sony tapes anymore) – after that you appreciate the fact that you can buy ten excellent quality tapes for a little more than twenty dollars.
Haven’t used a mini dv in years. Tapes are definitely worth the price and actually come as SONY branded mini dv’s! I use for my VX-2000.
