How to Convert Camcorder Tapes to Digital!

Posted by Ian Stewart on

We understand! You don't want to lose your precious memories from your old camcorder tapes. So how do you go about transferring them to digital copies such as on DVD or USB?

Sony created one of the most successful camcorder brands in history. The Sony handycam! This camcorder was owned by many families capturing home videos of vacations concerts and more.

The Sony 8mm analog and later digital tapes all look the same; having the same size and shaped cartridge and 8mm film strips. But did you know they come in 3 different generations of 8mm, Digital8 and Hi8.

There are a couple of different ways you can go about transferring your old VHS tapes to DVD.

1. You could use the RCA output of the camera and feed it to a digital to analog converter through your computer.
2. You could use a FireWire connection to capture the film.
3. Or you could simply use an online service just like your video to DVD. Simply send us your tapes and we'll send them back to you in DVD format. It’s that simple!
