Video 8 to Digital Conversion

 

We all love the feeling of sitting around with our family and friends and watching old home cinema films of treasured memories – such as a lovely video recording. The moments captured on home video cameras are a precious window into the past. Special moments are all saved in photos and videos we take across our lives. But the truth is that these videos lose their shine as they age. Many older video tape formats like 8mm tapes have a limited product life. Even in the best archival conditions the lifespan of 8mm tape is only around 70 years and the old box in your attic will be a lot less than this. At Supaphoto we believe the answer to this lies in digitalsing your video 8 to dvd to preserve them for years to come. 

When considering your  video 8 tape conversion, perhaps you should first consider the format’s background. ‘Video 8’ typically refers to a type of 8mm video tapes produced during the 1980s. Video8 was actually launched in 1984, into a market completely dominated by the VHS-C and Betamax formats. Video8 had one key advantage over the full-size competition. Thanks to their relatively compact size, Video8 camcorders were small enough to hold in the palm of the user’s hand. Such a feat was quite impossible with Betamax and full-sized VHS camcorders.

The later versions had to operate on large sturdy tripods (with equally strong struggling shoulders). Video8 also has an advantage in terms of the duration of recordings, because although VHS-C offers the same “palmcorder” size as Video8, the VHS-C tapes could only hold (at most), 45 minutes of tape at Standard (SP) speed. Thus, Video8’s bigger 120-minute capacity served well for most users during its peak. Both formats were used widely by consumers to produce personal home videos due to the relatively small size and lightweight design. Later, hi8 tapes and the digital 8 camcorder format followed. To think we would move into the space where we could convert video8 to dvd along with video 8 to usb, incredible!

Why Convert Video 8 to DVD

As old camcorder tape ages it is more likely to become damaged. This is because the celluloid in old tape formats becomes more brittle and stiff as time goes on. Also, the moving parts in old video cassette players become less reliable as they reach the end of their product lives. These problems make playing old tapes on old machines a dangerous process as the chance that the tape may become trapped or broken inside the machine is very high – especially the case when it comes to video8 hi8 formats. We can take your headache away from thinking about video8 to digital converter equipment and processes. For us, to convert video8 to digital is what we’re experts in.



At Supaphoto we understand the importance of keeping your treasured memories safe. Which is why we know our video 8 to dvd conversion is respected by many. Nothing can replace the nostalgia of old vhs players and digital 8 camcorders but it is important to make sure our loved videos are protected in case anything should happen.


That’s why our video 8 to digital transfer service is such an important part of what we do. By bringing your old cassette tapes to us to convert into digital files you can be sure that your home videos will remain safe for years to come.Our video 8 to digital conversion service is carried out professionally and carefully.

Risks to Old Video 8 Tapes

  • Kodak’s famous ‘Super 8’ home camcorder was one of the first widely used 8mm camcorders used by amateur film makers.
  • Many 8mm cassettes contain a magnetic tape used to record sound. This is part of the reason why these tapes are at risk of damage if they come into contact with magnets.
  • The 8mm tape format began to lose popularity in the 1990s due to the development of digital recording technologies. The entrance of DVD players onto the popular market played a large part in Kodak’s suspension of 8mm production in the late 1990s.
