Video Shooting Tip: Record 1 Minute Black or Color Bar

If you are shooting video on a new miniDV tape, you will sometimes notice that in the first few seconds of recording, there is 1 or 2 picture/audio annoying skips or drop-outs.

Tip: To prevent this, record the first one minute of the tape with black or blank or color bar. Start your actual recording from the second minute.

As of today, I recommend Panasonic mini DV tapes.
