Top 10 Photography and Videography Mistakes

Monday, April 16th, 2012
  1.  A Cluttered Picture:  Don’t try to get everything in the scene.  What was it that made you want to take the picture in the first place?  Focus on that and eliminate any extraneous clutter that will draw a person’s eye away from the subject you want most prevalent.
  2. Get Closer:  Most new photographers or videographers for that matter want to play it safe and stay too far back.  Have the subject fill the screen unless it is important to have the background for use in showing scale. (more…)

Video in the Digital Age

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

In 2008, we saw the end of an era in home video, JVC announced that they were no longer making standalone VCR units.  The VCR which used to be the standard in home entertainment in the 70s, 80s and early 90s is done.

If you’ve still got a stack of VHS tapes, don’t worry. Since this was such a popular format of the time, there will still be players available second-hand and through resources like eBay for many years to come. If you have old VHS tapes, please store them in a cool place that is free of humidity that can cause mold.  Yes folks, we have seen tapes stuck together because of heat.  We have also seen mold growing on tapes.  If it gets that far, there is nothing that can be done to save them.

Take Holiday Memories From Your Video Camera and Share Them!

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

The holidays are over.  Great memories were had and many of those memories where captured on video.  You might have gotten a brand new video camera and used it to capture the family opening gifts.  Now you have all of those memories in your camera, what are you going to do with them?  You probably want to share the memories with family members.  You can do a couple of things.  You can take your video and download it into your computer and make YouTube clips or you can convert your videos into DVDs. 

If you want to put your videos on YouTube, you can create a free account.  Click the “Create An Account” button and fill out the requested information.  Once your account is created, you can upload movies to your account.  Hit the “Upload” button at the top of the screen.  Hit the “Select Files From Your Computer” button.  Navigate to where your movie is on the computer and hit “Open”.  The movie will start to upload. 

If you are going to make a DVD, you will need a program which can convert movies into DVDs.  There are several on the market and they all work differently so, we can’t go into specifics on that aspect.

DVDs make a great “after-holiday” gift.  CC Video Duplication, located in Melbourne, Florida has been converting different video formats into DVDs for years.  We can convert your hard drive camera, memory card camera or any other format into a DVD and make multiple copies for you to share with family and friends.  CC Video Duplication has always done their work in their office.  Your memories are never mailed off to a third party and thereby risking your video getting lost in the mail.

Archiving Video To Digital Formats

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Even if you keep your video tapes in a plastic case, vertically stored, in a climate controlled room, your tapes are eventually going to degrade. Let‘s face it, even though you will definitely slow down the degradation process, your tapes will fade away with exposure to time and the elements.  If you are going to take the leap and convert your old video tapes to a Digital Format you may want to consider a few things.

1. Convert All Your Footage:  Whatever you don’t convert you will probably lose forever. Things that you might not think you need now, you will kick yourself later for not saving. So, a good rule of thumb is, if you are not shooting the floor and your lens cap is off, convert it.

2. Know What Format You Want Your Footage To Become:  If you have a Windows PC computer, you will probably want the AVI format. If you have a Mac, then the format of choice is a Quicktime Movie. If you are archiving, stay away from formats like Windows Media and Flash. They are highly compressed and great for websites, but not for archiving. Once your file is converted to an AVI or a Quicktime Movie, it is easy to make a Windows Media or Flash file from your original digital file.

After your file is converted to a digital format, if you have editing software, you can edit out any footage you don‘t want in your videos. If you don‘t have editing software, we offer that service here at CC Video Duplication. All you have to do is watch your clips and write down the times of what you want to keep. After we are done editing, we can give you a finished video clip, a DVD or both. Click on the Video To Hard Drive link for more information.
