Way back in 2009, mycamera opened its physical doors with one goal in mind: bringing the latest and greatest in cameras and photography equipment to the photographic community. We set up shop on Roeland Street, in the heart of Cape Town’s ‘camera corridor’, and our dedication soon made us the first port of call for equipment and advice.

 

However, the changing nature of the internet and ecommerce soon meant that people’s shopping habits would change with them. Online stores are open round the clock, have a great deal more stock, and - best of all - you can shop in your PJs without fear of judgement.
The decision to take our business completely online was a no-brainer.

The VHS To Digital Conversion

The VHS to Digital Conversion leaping forward with technology.

I am sure most us still have the inevitable VHS videos lying around at home. It could be an old recording, or some home movies shot on an old camera.The trouble is now you will battle to find any available equipment to play or convert these. So what do you do? Some of those tapes are really special, once in a lifetime memories, precious moments captured long ago. You can’t get rid of them, you can’t play them. So what happens to most of these?

I personally have boxes of tapes stored at home, and since these are important you just end up hanging on to them. But actually you are getting nothing out of it considering there is no VHS player available anywhere and even if you did find one it most likely wouldn’t even be able to plug it in to your current TV. Talk about a catch twenty two…
