Which mini DV tape is the best

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

I am getting ready to shoot a short film on the GL-1 and wanted to know if there was a quality diffrence in dv tapes. I was thinking about using the Cannon tapes but I really don't know which to do. I go into production thursday and need to order soon. I also heard about TDK gumming up the heads. Just some general advice would be exelent, and greatly aprechiated. (sorry poor speller)

Any PRO-grad tape will do you wonders, plus it dosn't wear on the heads of your camera as much and is less succeptable to dropouts, banding and other artifacts.
