MiniDV Tapes to DVD
MiniDV tape is a digital video tape format which uses the same compression as DV. It was very popular for recording home movies. Most small camcorders sold after 2000 used the MiniDV digital video tape format. MiniDV tapes were 65 x 48 x 12 mm and the record time was 60 minutes (13gb standard play) or 90 minutes (extended/long play). Also, 80/120 minute tapes were available.
Again, the degrading quality of film means there is no better time to transfer your MiniDV tapes to DVD. Varying temperatures and dust all play a factor in the degrading your video’s quality. Therefore, it is best to save your memories and transfer them to Digital Conversion or DVD.
