[AV Media Matters] Kodak videotape

I, too, was sad to see Kodak drop its tape line. I purchased and used many
cases of Kodak VHS and 8mm videotapes, and cannot recall a single problem.
I have some vague notion that the tape was actually manufactured in Japan.

Kodak also came out with one of the first 8mm camcorder systems (made by
Hitachi)in the early 80s which was also very good, but unfortunately ahead
of its time.

Kodak also made video tape, and good tape at that. They eliminated all of it
from their line sometime in the mid-80s or so.
