Video Tapes

Video tapes are starting to look a little different. The old VHS tapes are losing popularity and collecting dust on shelves all across the country. In their place are these small digital videocassettes. These digital videocassettes are typically about two-and-a-half inches by two inches, about one-sixth the size of the old VHS video tapes. People using these videocassettes can buy VHS adaptors to put the mini-cassettes in to watch their movies.

If you enjoy using your camcorder, you should have a ready supply of video tapes. Having recently filmed a behind the scenes documentary covering a recent independent film, I recognize the need for having tapes. You have to keep the camera rolling if you want to capture the great moments. You burn a great deal of tape on mundane things, but that sacrifice is worth it when you capture the one priceless moment.

Wholesale Video Tapes

Video tapes can get expensive, especially if you like to keep your camcorder running. Before you know it, you're out of tape. Instead of buying individual tapes from local retail outlets, I suggest buying several tapes at a time. You can get volume and wholesale discounts if you have the wherewithal to do this.

Birthday parties, soccer games, dance recitals, and family reunions are all wonderful reasons to bust out your camcorder and burn some video tape. If pictures are worth a thousand words, videos are worth a great deal more. The people supply the words for you. The moments you capture will be enjoyed by you, your family and your friends for years. Make sure you have the tapes on hand to secure these moments.
