Despite our ongoing love for vintage media and technology, isn’t it frustrating that camcorder tapes have those precious childhood Christmas memories trapped inside all that outdated plastic?
For many, Christmas has always been the prime time of year for creating those treasured family memories, so it is unsurprising that it’s such a tradition to be able to capture those memories for life and hold onto them. Even these days with Instagram, Twitter and the huge range of different platforms we have to share our lives with the world, nothing beats an old school, nostalgic home movie made with a relatives old camcorder.
However, now that camcorders are obsolete, the desire to film Christmas Day and its traditions seems to be diminishing quickly – which is ironic since we all have access to phone cameras and social media to share every moment of every day with the world. But with all this new technology, we have been spoiled, so it is no longer a rarity to capture special moments. Sadly, there’s not that traditional desire to document endless hours of family members unwrapping presents, the whole family stuffing their faces and Grandad falling asleep on the sofa.
Perhaps your only nostalgic reminder of a childhood Christmas is the sticky residue left from the wrapping paper on the camcorder cases themselves.
Transfer your Christmas video to DVD
So, is there a way that we can relive these old memories? A way that we can share the warmth of reminiscing with relatives all over the world? What with camcorders and tapes being classed as vintage and retro these days, is it as impossible as it seems?
Thankfully, we have an answer for you. Modern technology isn’t just all iPhones and Smart TV’s, here with Supaphoto we can help you digitise your favourite Christmas tapes. Luckily, while technology is rapidly developing, the digital world is managing to keep up with it. The ever-expanding digital world is constantly growing and evolving. Make sure to future-proof your favourite memories by transferring your tapes to DVD or digital.
Recapturing those heart-warming Christmas memories sounds practically effortless: record the videos onto a computer, tweak them on editing software and then transfer them onto a device of your choice. Sounds nice and easy when condensed down to three steps. Right?
Sorry to say, it’s not all that simple. As easy as the steps may be, it’s when it comes down to the equipment you need that things get a little more tricky. Unfortunately, equipment for recording the tapes is expensive and hard to come across, so tracking it down would be your first mission. Plus, that’s all without the time it takes to record videos and edit them!
