Video8

The Video8 camcorder tape was very popular in the mid 1980’s, and was used mostly for home videos. Click to order!

VHS

Released in 1975, the VHS tape was the first analogue tape for home use. The Era of the VHS has long since ended, and it’s becoming more and more important to transfer your old VHS to dvd or digital.

VHS-C

The VHS-C is the compact version of the VHS and was the first camcorder tape format to be released. You could play these in a VCR using a video tape adaptor.

MiniDV

MiniDV’s are one of the most recent camcorder tape formats capable of recording in a higher resolution than older analogue tape formats. Click to order!

Betamax

The Betamax tape was a less popular competitor of the VHS tape, but there are still many lying around in people’s attics and cupboards waiting to be transferred to digital.

MicroMV

The MicroMV was a short lived camcorder tape format that wasn’t very popular, with the DVD taking over as the most popular video storage media.

FAQs

How can I convert 8mm tapes without a camcorder?

You can’t convert 8mm tapes without equipment to play the tapes. If you find yourself in this position you can either purchase the camcorder and capturing equipment, or use a professional digitisation service to efficiently capture your media.

How do I transfer Hi8 tapes to my computer?

You need a Hi8 camcorder, a USB converter, and accompanying software. If you want to avoid this process and save time, an alternative solution would be using Digital Converters. We specialise in transferring old videos to digital and can take care of the hard work for you.
