too late to switch tapes
I've been reading the horror stories of switching tapes after using one brand and the different lubricants used by different companies. I've run about ten hours of Panasonic tapes thru a new 2100 and was wondering if it's too late to switch brands. I know it's a Ford v Chevy choice, but I'd like to use Sony from here on. If there's any chance of a problem I will stick to the Panos. This 2100 is my main cam and the back up is not up for the task.
Apologies if this has been addressed, I'm new here. Thanks.

I would say that 10 tapes is not enough to build up enough residue to be concerned. A pass with a cleaning tape will remove residue from head drum, but if you want to be 100% worry free then a manual cleaning of the tape path will insure all remnants are removed.
