In fact, it’s predicted that more than 35% of Americans will take a vacation this year! Here at Easy Edit Video, some of our fondest memories are of warm summer nights, running through sprinklers, grilling delicious food and visiting with friends and family while dad captured every moment with his VHS camcorder or Super 8 camera. With millions of camcorders sold in the United States alone, we are willing to bet that you too have plenty of footage of these wonderful occasions lying around the house. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to experience those moments again?

Here at Easy Edit Video, we specialize in video production, but one of our most sought afterVHS to DVD Transfer services is VHS to DVD transfers. Every week, we receive hundreds of High 8, Betamax and Standard VHS tapes to be transferred to DVD.

Super 8 is Great at Easy Edit Video!

What do Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams all have in common? They all began their love of film making with the Kodak Super 8 camera. All three of these prominent directors have long praised the Super 8 and feel they owe much of their success to the time they spent using these cameras. Super 8 truly did revolutionize film making in that, for the first time, the average household could afford a movie camera.  Young boys and girls spent hours running around with the Super 8 camera, learning the tricks of the trade and developing their own special styles.  In fact, Super 8 was so influential, Kodak is bringing it back! But what made Super 8 so, well, great? super-8-film

Prior to the release of Super 8, home movies were incredibly difficult to shoot. 16mm film had to be cut down, reels had to be wound and reversed, not to mention the cost! With the introduction of Super 8, Kodak eliminated the tedious process and allowed for quick, easy film making.  Super 8 used Kodachrome film (which is still used today in major motion pictures) for crisper, sharper more colorful images. In fact, Kodachrome is such a good product, many of the old reels and slides made 50 years ago are still just as vibrant as they were the day they were developed! In 1973, Kodak took Super 8 a step further and added a magnetic strip to the film. Why a magnetic strip? Sound! Prior to 1973, all 8mm home movies were silent, with the introduction of sound, a whole new world of film making opened up.

vintage-super-8Super 8 reigned supreme as the go-to in home movie making for decades, but with the advent of the VHS video camcorder, Super 8  fell to the wayside. Reels and reel of footage were left to collect dust in attics, basements and closets across the nation. We are willing to bet that if you take a look, you’ll find old reels of your own hidden away in grandma’s house somewhere!

So what should you do with these old film reels? Bring them to us! Here at Easy Edit Video, we use our state of the art equipment to bring your old Super 8 films back to life! Our highly-trained technicians will use the time and care needed to ensure that your film is safely converted to a format you can watch for years to come.  Give us a call at 904-730-9999 to learn more about what we can do for you!

Social Sharing is Easy at Easy Edit Video!

Here at Easy Edit Video, we specialize in all things video production, but one of our most highly sought after services is transferring VHS tapes to DVDs. Every week we get hundreds of orders for this very thing and we love providing this special service to the North Florida – South Georgia area. But did you know that we can also convert your film footage to an MP4?

MP4 files are a great way to not only store your important memories, but edit and share MP4-Iconthem too!  If a VHS tape or film reel is transferred to a DVD, your memories will be safe for decades, but once the DVD is burned, you are unable to add more films, photos or other data. With MP4 files, we upload all of your footage to a hard drive or UBS flash drive, allowing you to add more footage and easily edit the footage you have on your home computer. Do you have old slides and photographs that need to be digitized? We can put them on a USB or hard drive too!

Another advantage to MP4 files is that they are so easy to share! If you convert your film to DVD, we would be happy to make multiple copies of your footage to give to family and friends, however, there are many ways to share MP4 files without having to mail or hand distribute your films.  Social media sites like Facebook, Youtube and Vimeo allow you to easily upload your files to their sites. Other programs like Dropbox or even your email account allow you to easily share your films as well. For more information about sharing, check out this article about 4 Ways to Share Photos & Video Privately.   Facebook icon

Another advantage to MP4 is that you will have to ability to upload them to any computer, thus, backing up your favorite memories! Avoid the possibility of your recently converted memories becoming lost or damaged by uploading your MP4s to your lap top, desk top and other devices.

DVDs are certainly a wonderful way to save all of your precious family moments before it’s too late. Over time, film degrades in heat and moisture, causing irreparable harm. Transferring those films to DVD  is a fantastic way to ensure that your children and even your grandchildren will be able to experience the extraordinary moments that you and your family have experienced. But if you are looking for a way to not only save your memorable moments, but share them as well, converting your home movies to MP4 is the way to go!
