Supaphoto's Convert Camcorder Tapes to Digital Professional Service


The first old school camcorders were huge and cumbersome like prehistoric monsters, the missing link between the golden days of cine film and the arrival of the smartphone.

They were huge fearsome beasts that needed to be lugged around on broad shoulders.

Everything was enormous back then. The batteries were mammoth and didn’t last too long, and the cassettes the new machines were built around were about the size of house bricks.

Camcorders were truly revolutionary in their day. It was the first time home movie-makers had been able to make and edit a film without having to send it off to the processors.

Suddenly, with the appearance of digital camcorders they could do it all by themselves. And the great thing was you could now shoot as much footage as you liked because it would never break the bank. This changed the way people made home-movies forever. On top of that we can transfer your camcorder tapes onto dvd for lifelong quality memories.

Convert Camcorder to Digital and to DVD

Many of us have fond memories of having an early camcorder in the home where we grew up.

They were key devices for capturing treasured moments from the 1980s and 1990s when we all led such busy lives.

On video tapes that survive to this day, there’s endless footage of kids flying around on skateboards and BMX bikes, soccer moms with their energetic offspring and Cabbage Patch dolls invading entire cities home by home, not forgetting dads in shiny summer jackets trying desperately to look like Don Johnson from Miami Vice.

Most early video tapes produced by camcorders have a nostalgic retro look all of their own too, that’s slightly grainy and low on detail. This fuzziness became much worse if you forgot to clean the heads for any length of time; then, at a certain point, all your footage began to look like it was recorded during a blizzard. This used to happen surprisingly often.

In fact, the passing of time has not always been kind to elderly camcorder tape. Old VHS videos look worse and worse with age as their tapes degrade. That’s why we’re often considered for our convert camcorder tapes to digital services. Perhaps that’s why camcorder to dvd services have grown in popularity. 30 years worth of home videos are precious so don’t let your tapes deteriorate even further and transfer your camcorder tapes to usb and digital formats and play them on your dvd player and computer with ease.

A Camcorder Tape Conversion Will Last You A Lifetime

The tech industry has always been based on the idea of frequent upgrades and built-in obsolescence. It’s never been about long-term storage. That’s why video tapes are so fragile. If moisture seeps into the cassette housing, it’s almost impossible to get rid of it.

Smoke and dust aren’t good either; they make your images fade and pixilate.

That’s why it’s crucial to convert camcorder tapes to digital format or DVD before they deteriorate to the point where it’s impossible to do anything more with them. If you’ve entered looking to convert camcorder tapes to digital service near me, before it’s too late, send them to Supaphoto and get the job done by experts.
