Frequently Asked Questions
Moreover, the picture quality of video camera tapes is notoriously poor! Quality is adversely affected by tape deterioration, slow recording speed, less than ideal shooting conditions, over and under exposure, tracking problems, dizzying camera movements, etc. The DVD reproduces exactly these imperfections.
NOTE: Some Mini DV tapes produce high definition images with an aspect ratio of 16 X 9 (compatible with new HD widescreen TVs). The quality of even these tapes, however, can be adversely affected by the issues outlined in the above paragraph.
Be sure to check your tapes before delivering them to us because the tape contents will be reproduced exactly — flaws and all! By checking first, you'll know what to expect.
• Because it is extremely labour intensive, an additional fee of $5 per hour of tape must be applied for creating video files. Video files can be played on computers or used in movie editing software such as Windows Movie Maker or Apple's iMovie or Final Cut.
