Sony LP DV tapes

Sony has launched a new type of Mini-DV tape, the Sony DVM85HD, that records for 85 minutes, that’s 22 minutes longer than regular DV tapes. Must be a thinner tape, so I wonder what this has done to the drop-out ratio. Gizmodo reports that each tape will be sold in Japan for roughly $13 US dollars. The HD indicates the tapes are suitable for HD recorders. Current HD tapes in Holland cost nearer US dollars 20 for a standard length tape…may be I am being ripped off.
