Anyone know somewhere local - or online that can transfer some tapes from my camcorder onto dvd.

We went to Florida in 2001 and transferred the film it onto video when we came home,but those tapes are now worn,and we'd like them on dvd.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

There's a shop in Amersham that does wedding photos etc., (next to the Orange phone shop) that advertise tapes to DVD. Let me know if you use them as I want to have a couple of videos changed to DVD's.

I sent a pm to struthie, but I guess I might as well advertise my services here (hope that's not in contravention of rules for posting), in case there is a vast untapped market out there :-)

I have a nascent business doing all manner of home PC-related stuff (problem solving, broadband setup, PC upgrades etc). I can easily transfer from standard VHS to DVD, and other media are also possible depending on the tape format and/or whether loan of the client's camcorder is possible. A straight tape to DVD transfer without any editing or tidying up and without constructing DVD menus would start at around 25 or so per tape, but for several tapes the rate per tape would drop substantially.

And how about transferring cinecamera 8 mm films onto DVD? Would you be able to do those too, and if so what do you charge?

Sorry, that requires expensive specialist equipment which I don't have.

Several shops used to offer that service and probably still do. Keene's certainly did and I think the photo shop in Amersham did too. Be careful, though. Your 8mm films are probably fairly brittle by now and I have heard stories of the original films being completely wrecked.
