Hi whs good evening,
I talked with my cousin, and the video I was worried about is a moot point. She has a Cannon ES8100V 8mm and will be taking the tape to Costco's Photo Center
to have the analog video (AV) converted to Digital Video (DV) and burned to disk, then upload them to an account she has with Snapfish
I was concerned about the cost, but she has done this before and doesn't think it will be that bad, maybe around $20US. All I know is I have heard it is expensive and thought it would be much more than that.
It says this at the Photo Center link under product details, I underlined two areas:
- Pricing starts at $17.99. A 2nd DVD copy is included with every transfer order.
- Just bring your reels, tapes and slides to Costco 1-Hour Photo. Pick up your DVDs in about 3 weeks.
It's nice she will get a copy, but we'll see.
There is 25" of video and I told her to expect two disks. I was reading where 14GB equals about an hour of running time, so, turning that around and rounding the 25" to 30 I figured 7GB and two DVD disks.
I have already downloaded her pictures. The only thing I dislike is SF only allows a 10MB zipped download, I don't mind the .zip part, but do on the size limit.
I'll be online for a while yet, but it's getting late here so I think I'll call it a night and start on them tomorrow.
