Our Passion for Video Restoration

Women like people. Men like things. That’s what people say. We’re not sure it always rings true but depending on your age, you probably well remember the hours and hours of your dad or grandad perhaps playing with his new toy.

You watched as he bought the films. With cine film, it was often cartridges in the case of super 8 that needed loading into Super 8 cameras. Before that it was double 8 film in Standard 8 cine cameras. With the latter, You would have to do it in a darkened room.

Later followed the age of video cameras. The first portable video recorder your parents most likely purchased was either a VHS or Betamax  recorder. In so many respects these were exciting and new times. The new portable recorders had  many advantages over their predecessors. However, one could also argue that the picture quality was not always superior to old cine film. In fact, we have seen many video tapes with inferior quality images compared to footage captured on a good quality cine camera in good light.

As an aside, it’s often joked that the first generation of video recorders  were responsible for many pounds being lost by the camera person. This was because they invariably had a separate portable battery power supply hanging over the other shoulder which was jolly heavy and cumbersome. You get the idea!


So the age of video had arrived. With it, came the natural advantage of not needing to get one’s cine film chemically processed via a chemist. The recording material itself – the tapes, cost less for the tapes and there was no need to wait for the results. On the other hand, the early years resulted in many recordings that now appear to look quite poor.

Typical problems included jerky pictures, faded images, tapes being chewed up by video players and problems with sound. Of course, none of these issues could have been envisaged by your parents when they seemingly followed you around at school events such as plays, sports days, holidays and weddings. But time has a habit of changing things and and sadly, the condition of film is one thing that if if not dealt with over time will affect those precious memories 

If you were lucky, perhaps you would have bought yourself one of the first video camcorders that followed. For example a video 8, Hi8, Digital 8 or Mini DV camcorder.

Highly Recommended Restoration Services

When you look back you probably realise how valuable those recordings are. In fact they are truly irreplaceable. But this was perhaps 20 years ago and 3 times more if you include footage originally shot on old cine film!

But stop and consider for a second as to what happens to old VHS tapes over time. In short, they simply start to deteriorate. The worse part is that the same issue affects all magnetic type tape. This means that the aforementioned video tape formats will also be affected by the way. We see it all of the time. And it’s not just nature doing its work at play here. It’s also other elements such as poorly chosen storage locations which sometimes result in mould.   

But there’s no need to get too concerned since at Supaphoto. We’ve seen all of these issues before with our video restoration service and have had lots of experience dealing with them.
