This listing is for film transfer of 1ea HDV tape (Many HDV camcorders recorded to standard MiniDV tapes but recorded in HDV format) to DVD disc.

Buy one listing for each tape you want transfered to DVD.

I only transfer standard consumer camcorder tapes like the camcorders you bought at local department stores. Check your tape and camcorder to make sure you have "HDV" written somewhere on it. Some tape cassettes are colorful and some are black. Some have a rectangle window and some have a big clear window so you can see the tape inside. Also some tapes are marked "30 / 60" or similar. Plan on sending me a photo of your tapes if you are unsure if it is HDV.

Only family style movies, no XXX, no risque, no copyrighted works, no tv shows, no movie studio films, etc. Only consumer camcorder tapes that are shot with a camcorder please.

I specialize in HDV Format, and I have excellent professional equipment in pristine condition.
