VHS, 8mm, DV, miniDV tape video conversion

Hi. I'm offering freelance VHS, Digital8, Hi8 (not 8mm reel film), DV and miniDV tapes video conversion services. Conversion rate is $15 per hour or part thereof. In other words, a 2.5 hours tape is $15 x 3 = $45. By default, videos are extracted to .avi format. You can choose to convert to any format though - .mov, .mp4 etc. Customers need to provide their own external hard disks, USB drives for storing these videos. For conversion to DVDs, pls include $5 per DVD. DVD media will be quality media as I recognized the importance of lasting precious memories. Self-provided dvds are still charge at $5 as effort is largely on the authoring n chapters creation process.

I'm sorry that I cannot accept tapes which are mouldy or fungus infected. These tapes have many a times ruined the video heads. You might like to take such tapes to a professional tape cleaner before attempting video conversion.

Meetup will be @ Bishan MRT. Alternatively, you can come to my Bishan home, which might be a better idea so that you get a peace of mind that I'm not a fly-by-night guy. Please feel free to contact or email me at kuanlian@hotmail.com. I will try my best to answer your queries 😉

A video conversion freelancer since 1995.
