Yeah you really should record a lead in so that you have a pre-roll for editing. I run color bars for thirty seconds. Some people will black a whole tape. I don't think it's that necessary for DV. Just don't use the camera's VTR and you shouldn't have to worry about timecode breaks.

With the XL series, you can also close the aperture in addition to leaving the lens cap on the lens. Some lens caps will leak light.

I think color bars are definitely preferable to black lead ins.
