HVS transferred some VHS tapes from some dance recitals that took place 35 years ago. The transfer to DVD and MP4 were clear, both visually and audibly – I couldn’t believe it after all these years. Thank you for helping me to share these memories of some of the best times of my life with former students and teachers. Great job on the packaging too! We will cherish these forever.

I had 23 precious family tapes of my children from 1980s - 8 MM format - and David transferred them accurately and efficiently within 10 days. I was very pleased with the quality and timeliness. I will be returning to have some more tapes digitized in next year before the old Bell and Howell from the 1960s fades away.

- Ian Lee from Ottawa

07/19/2017 Home Movie Transfer

I am very pleased with the final product. Given the fact that you were working with some 8mm film that dated back to 1961. Seeing family, relatives and friends come to life again is a wonderful thing. Loved ones never really go away, the memories are always with us. But to have those memories come alive before our eyes adds to the moment. Thank you for restoring and preserving cherished memories that likely would have been lost. I would certainly recommend Home Video Studio. Your professionalism, skill and customer relations are highly regarded.

I asked David to transfer my old home videos to DVD and USB drive which he did as promised within a one week time frame. I was pleasantly surprised to find the DVD's all nicely packaged up in a memories keepsake album. I am very satisfied with the quality of product and service that I received and would definitely recommend Home Video Studio.

05/07/2017 Home Movie Transfer

I had a bunch of my grandparents old family films lying around the house and wanted to get them transferred over to a DVD so my grandmother could see her late husband again. I had a bit of a deadline, needing to get them shipped back to BC by April 27th, and asked David to get them done in only 10 days, and he was able to deliver! My whole family is thrilled to see themselves younger again, and all the memories it brought back. The quality of the film was not the best, being shot by an armature, but they turned out and we were all satisfied with the results. 10/10 I would recommend Home Video Studio to friends in the future.

- Rhea from Ottawa

04/17/2017 Home Movie Transfer

I am very happy to have found your company here in Ottawa that does video transfers. You transferred my old Super 8 films and VHS tapes to DVD back in 2013 and I was thrilled with the results. I again used your service to have more home videos transferred to DVD in 2017. All of these old home movies were saved before the tapes became unusable. Thank you! I also appreciate the fact that the DVDs are contained in one case. I have been recommending you to everyone I know.

- Louise from Gatineau

01/12/2017 Home Movie Transfer

Thank you Home Video Studio for making our 2016 Christmas family get together a truly memorable one… The smiles on the faces, the laughter and the few tears shed, as our extended family gathered around our HD TV to watch our 50-plus year old 8 mm home movies come to live once again. With our old 8 mm projector out of commission for many years, these wonderful memories were confined to boxes in our hallway closet. Converting our old movies to DVDs is something my wife and I talked about for many years, but like many things, we just never got around to it. Well, this year we did it and sure happy we did. Even though the image quality on our original movies was not great to start with, we were pleasantly surprised with the end result, even when viewed on our big screen TV. Being able to navigate through the various chapters of the DVD is real plus. Another plus is the music sound bed that you incorporated into the DVD. A really nice added touch. Thanks again and looking forward to dealing with you again… we have many small format VHS tapes that will need to be transferred to DVD. Jacques

01/05/2017 Home Movie Transfer

The week before Christmas I decided it would be a great surprise to be able to show our family old videos we had taken when they were children. Of course, at that late date I could not find anywhere to have my 8 mm converted to DVD without at least a 5-6 week turn around. I found Home VIdeo Studio on-line and David was able to convert six tapes to videos in plenty of time for us to show them on Christmas Day. Thank you for bringing back all of our memories for us - it was a wonderful surprise. I will be having more tapes converted very soon. I have already recommended Home Video Studio to many friends and I know they will be as satisfied as we are.

- Lynn Barton from Kanata

01/02/2017 Home Movie Transfer

Converting our old 8 mm films to digital was a great gift idea and your conversion service was excellent. My siblings and I doubted we could get much usable material from such scratchy originals, but the videos you gave us are pleasant to watch. The ones with color seem to have retained their true colors. You provided the files on time and on budget and you were pleasant to do business with. What follows are a few quotes to show the impact these videos have had on my family... “Outstanding. Thanks for a fabulous memento. Really appreciated and a nice surprise and an over the top piece of history to keep forever.” “That is the most AMAZING video! I had no idea it existed- ... Amazing to see our parents so young! ... --- - - was really in shape...and affectionate .... And all the families together. ... WOW! Thank you for doing this and sending it.” “This footage is WONDERFUL! Thank you so much for sending it to us. To see everyone at that age is remarkable. “ “- - - forwarded me the video you made and I just wanted to thank you so much for sending that to him. We all had a really crappy week and this just totally made him light right up! I know you spoke with him after he viewed it, but wasn't sure if he told you just how much this really made his day!” ”Thanks for that treat. That was a great gift. ... Amazing to see one’s parents alive when they were young. A first for me. ... thanks for doing this”

David did an amazing job transferring some very old 35mm movie footage that would have been lost forever. His service was professional and the quality is surprising. The next time we need services such as these we will gladly seek out David's services.

I am very happy with the service and quality of the VHS tapes I had transferred to DVD's. David Gardner was very flexible, friendly and quick to have the tapes done and ready to be picked up. I am recommending this service to friends, or anyone who needs to bring the memories into this decade. We will be sharing them with our family at Christmas and I know it will be so enjoyable. I look forward to have slides transferred in the future. I did read the reviews before I placed my order, seems everyone is happy with their experience. Thanks again!

12/06/2016 Home Movie Transfer

We had a number of Super 8 films of our children from the 1980’s that we rarely watched because of the hassle of getting out the projector and screen. Then our projector broke so we decided to have the films transferred to DVD so we did not lose these memories. I was so glad to have found David and his services. He did a great job in a very timely manner and we now can enjoy these treasures again without all the hassle. We have now decided to have the 8mm films we have dating back to the 1940’s also transferred. Thanks David.

- Lynda from Ottawa

11/02/2016 Home Movie Transfer

We recently had 10 VHS tapes that we wanted converted to DVD format. These tapes are over 20 years old and needed to be transferred to preserve quality before serious deterioration could occur. David was most pleasant to deal with and created a family memories 10 dvd collection . At the beginning of each dvd is a scene selection option with thumbnail photos wich saves time when searching . The quality is very good and will return for another transfer, this time for 8mm and super 8 film onto DVD format.A+

David did a fantastic job on our over 40-year old 8mm home movies. I am so glad to know that I now have these on a permanent format - and the quality is amazing! In addition, he completed the conversion ahead of schedule! David responded to my many queries and concerns incredibly quickly, which is rare these days. Sadly, I don't have any more film to convert but I will emphatically recommend David to anyone who needs video production services. We are truly lucky to have him in the Ottawa area. Thank you David!

- Steve P from Kanata

06/15/2016 Home Movie Transfer

The quality of your work is unsurpassed. I was under a tight deadline to have the movie transfers done for my Mother-in-laws birthday party. You came through quickly and the whole process was seamless. Everyone at the party was surprised, delighted and captivated by the movies and by the fact you are easily accessible to them if they want to do the same thing. Thank You

- Darren H from Almonte On

05/16/2016 Home Movie Transfer

David, just a quick note to let you know how pleased we are with your recent transfer of over 3 hours of 8mm film. I had previously tried to transfer it myself through a projector box configuration but the results were not satisfactory. Even though my footage dates back to 1956, the colour and clarity is remarkable. I was not even sure if my old film could be safely transported through a projector anymore though I'm sure your sprocketless technology helped. I took your transferred files and edited period music over the silent video and now have a priceless heirloom to be enjoyed by future generations, Thanks again,

- Mike P. from Orleans

05/12/2016 Home Movie Transfer

We had 22 Hi8 camcorder tapes spanning 1990 to 2007 showing the events of our family as they grew. After less than two weeks they were all expertly transferred to DVD. It is so great to be able to show these more easily to family and relive all the fun moments the kids' childhood. With a new grandson, it will be fun to show him what daddy was like as a kid!

- Andrew from Ottawa

04/26/2016 Home Movie Transfer

Only great things to day about David's services. We had all my father's 8mm home movies transferred to digital files. We were very pleased with the speed and quality of the service--great colour, no scratches or dust in the scans, and all the options for file formats were carefully explained. When my 91 year old mother saw one of the video files of one of the family weddings shot in the 1960s that she had not seen in decades, she watched it through four times in a row!

- Howard Sandler from Ottawa

04/06/2016 Home Movie Transfer

David did a great job of transferring my father's 8 mm film to DVD . The quality and service was very good - I would definitively recommend this company to those wishing do preserve their precious memories.

- Denise from Ottawa

03/11/2016 Home Movie Transfer

1200 feet of Super 8 film lay neglected in my basement after my projector failed 5 years ago and chewed up the first 4 feet. I recently dusted off the remainder and had it transferred to HD Blu Ray disk by Home Video Studio. The service I received was first class. My disk was ready exactly when promised and the quality of the picture on my tv was superb. The music added a new dimension and made a pleasant change from the sound of a whirring projector. The memories came flooding back from that Blu Ray including some I had all but forgotten about. I was able to relive a big chunk of my life in just 52 minutes and I couldn't put a price on how good that made me feel. As such I was so glad I finally dug the reels out and took them to Home Video Studio. I would certainly recommend anybody else to do the same.

- Martyn from Ottawa

02/28/2016 Video to DVD

- Christina from Ottawa

02/15/2016 Home Movie Transfer

My family and I were extremely pleased with the work that Home Video Studio provided us. We had several films and VHS videos, taken through 1960 to 1990, converted into DVDs and the quality was simply amazing! We were able to watch special moments that we thought were lost and teach our kids about their family history. Needless to say, the viewing was nostalgic. Thank you Home Video Studio for your quality work. We plan on having more films and videos converted to uncover the mystery of our family past!

Another happy customer! Had a DVD made of about 10 8mm reels from 1958-9 for Xmas. Very pleased with the Home Video Studio for polite, professional, time sensitive service. This time I asked for custom music for 3 of the reels which cost more. I previewed it - and I'm very pleased. Thankyou.

11/29/2015 Video to DVD

Many moons ago before I got married and started a family I got a high 8 video camera which documented our lives for 12 or so years before it died. After that I went digital so the tapes got stored away. Without the Hi-8 they couldn't be viewed. It was always a nagging worry that if something were to happen to these tapes the loss would be irretrievable and besides they should be viewed! For Christmas this year I thought I would surprise the family with a digital transfer. That's where homevideostudio came in. I brought in the big box of Hi-8 tapes and a few older VHS tapes and left it with him. In short order I got an email they were ready. The DVD's were beautifully packaged and labeled in a wonderful "memories" case. I just sneak viewed a few of them (Christmas hasn't come yet) and they are outstanding! As good as the original source. What an enormous sense of relief that our memories are now not only permanently safe but wonderfully presented. I would highly highly recommend that everybody with tapes a) save them and b) get homevideostudio to do it. You will be very very happy! Thanks David.

- Daryl from Kanata

06/22/2015 Home Movie Transfer

We recently had our 8mm home movie tapes transferred to DVD and to a hard drive. It was great to be able to watch the movies again and we found the picture quality to be excellent. The service was great and the project was completed even faster than promised. I would highly recommend Home Video Studio to anyone looking to have their videos transferred.

- Rudy from Ottawa

06/06/2015 Home Movie Transfer

I was very pleased with the transfer from 8mm to DVD that David did for me. It was done quickly, and the music enhanced it. I was afraid the colours would be washed out, but they were more vibrant than the original. So pleased with the excellent work. My family laughed and cried watching us in the 1950's!

- Jane from Nepean

05/13/2015 Home Movie Transfer

I had several 1960s era home movies stored in my basement on old projector reels that had not been viewed for years. Home Video Studios transferred those movies for me into digital files that I could download and easily view/edit. They were a real hit at our last family get-together. The work was completed on time and the end-product was just what I wanted.

- Penny from Ottawa

05/04/2015 Home Movie Transfer

I was very happy with the quality of the 8mm film transfer. The time it took to complete the transfer was also very reasonable. Thank you!

- Josh from Ottawa

03/02/2015 Home Movie Transfer

I had a shoe box full of my Dad's old 8mm film, plus some 8mm sound film from the 80's transferred to DVD.. The transaction with Home Video Studios was straightforward and clear, the price was reasonable and the product was delivered on time. (a few days before, actually) I was very happy with the results and would not hesitate to refer friends and family to David.

- John E from Ottawa

01/26/2015 Video to DVD

I'm so happy we got our camcorder tapes into DVD's - It was easy I simply dropped them off and one week later they were ready and in a nice 'Family Memories' holder. I brought them to my Mom for her 86th birthday and she said it was the best gift ever as she was able to relive those special moments. Totally worth it.

- LIse from Stittsville

- Karen from Greely

01/11/2015 Home Movie Transfer

I am very satisfied with the transferring of my super 8mm home movies to digital media ( both DVD and memory stick) by David Gardner at Home Video Studio in Kanata. My movies spanned 20 years from 1967 to 87 when my family was growing up and contained many memorial moments, vacation trips, activities, etc. I met with David before giving him my films and was very impressed by both his substantial technical background in engineering and the professional quality of his studio. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and neighbours who may have need of such services.

- Jim McEwan from Stittsville

01/06/2015 Home Movie Transfer

I presented David with quite a challenge a few weeks before Christmas. I dropped off numerous trays of slides and several reels of film that I'd thought were lost years ago. My wish was to have them transformed into a form of media that we could easily watch. Sensing how busy he was, I didn't press to have them ready before Christmas. To my surprise, David called on Christmas Eve to let me know my order was ready to pick up! I must say I was truly impressed with David's professionalism and quality of the files I received - and so quickly!! I would definitely recommend David's Home Video Studio for any of your projects. You will be amazed :)

- Dianne McDonald from Greely

01/02/2015 Video to DVD

12/15/2014 Home Movie Transfer

My husband had been looking for some time for a company to convert old super-8 films that were give to him by his mom who passed away over 20 years ago. Over the years they were very damaged from not being stored properly. He found Home Video Studio on the internet. I brought the films in and knowing how damaged they were, I wasn't expecting too much. Took them less than two weeks to complete. We are very happy with what they were able to salvage. I would not hesitate to hire them again for other projects I have with protecting old photo's and I would recommend this company to anyone looking to have their photo's or films brought back to life. The smile on my husbands face is priceless. Thank you so much.

- Carol Lafontaine from Gatineau, Quebec

11/04/2014 Video to DVD

I was searching for a video service that could convert my collection of Super Hi-8 videotapes to DVD. It was a sizeable undertaking - comprising a total of 33 (2 hour) tapes - fifteen years of treasured family memories. Quite by accident I discovered Home Video Studio in Kanata, and what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be. David understood immediately how valuable and precious the tapes were, and undertook to convert them for me. He did an outstanding job - converting, burning, labeling and packaging. I couldn't have been happier. I would strongly recommend Home Video Studio to anyone - for any video project you might have. Great service, great value!

- Henry Brodmann from Kanata

Not only I can now see this movie (that I have not seen for years) and share it with my family members, but I can also include it in a new movie I am now producing with iMovie.

I have had a great experience with Home Video Studio. I have been cleaning out my Mother's Condo when I came across some old 8mm film. Wondering what was on them, I went on line and found Home Video Studio. One quick trip there and in a few days, I received an email and picked up my new DVD. After inviting my 2 brothers over to view this we were extremely excited to see video of ourselves from over 45 years ago. We are getting ready to show my mother who is 82 now. She will love it. Thanks Again David you made 3 men very happy.

- Scott Lee from Ottawa

I was very pleased and relieved to find out my old VHS tapes were still in good shape and could be successfully copied to DVD. David was very easy to with with and provided a top notch product which I will cherish for many years to come. These tapes of children growing up are very precious to me and right from the start I felt they were in capable hands with David's company. Would definitely recommend Home Video Studio

- Lisa from Ottawa

08/05/2014 Home Movie Transfer

We had been talking about transferring our home VHS movies for awhile but it's one of those things that keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the priority pile until one of our VHS tapes broke. We were heart broken and decided that we had better get the others transferred before it happened again. Well not only did David transfer all our movies to a wonder DVD set, he fixed and transferred our broken tape. We are so happy with the results we are telling everyone we know that they have to do the same thing. These memories are irreplaceable and we couldn't be happier knowing that our memories have been saved! Thank you David!

- Gilles Vanasse from Ottawa

07/24/2014 Home Movie Transfer

I had discovered a couple of old 8mm video tapes a while back as we were clearing out Mum and Dad's house to move them from the family farm back in 2009. The tapes sat by my computer at home for 5 years before I finally got around to doing something with them. The trigger was that I had become a member of a Business Breakfast Club - David Gardner was already a member of the group and talked with great enthusiasm about the services he provides. With no idea of the content of the tapes, I decided to ask David to help unlock these treasures and get them transferred to digital format for me. What a treasure ! There were video clips from the 1950's, 60's and 70's - all of family members. One special segment from 1959 captured a family gathering at the same farm mentioned above where I would eventually grow up, with all the grandparents, aunts / uncles, and cousins from my Dad's side of the family in attendance at a mini family reunion. I wasn't born yet, and my grandmother would pass away a few years later, so I never got to meet her. To see her on video was incredible - and as far as I know, it's the only piece of video ever recorded of her. I've since posted that segment of video to Facebook in a group I've set up for that part of my family tree, and the response has been tremendous. Lots of tears, lots of memories. Thanks to David for unlocking these treasures. I would not hesitate to use his services again.

- Adrian from Ottawa

I needed a DVD made for my Mother's memorial service. It was a time sensitive issue, and my DVD was completed in just a few days. I was happy to have an area where I was by myself to view the finished product as this was an emotional time. The DVD was perfect, and my family was very moved and impressed. I have used David's services before, for copying, and will use them in the future, as I have dozens of old photos to scan for my family. The price is very reasonable and I was happy with the end product.

Accessibility and speed was crucial as we had a tight timeline to transfer old wedding cassettes to CD. I was very pleased with how quickly our email request was responded to, phone call returned, the work was done & the results were excellent.

A superb job and exactly to my specifications. You managed to take a 40-year old, spliced up, Super-8 MM film and convert it into a seamless, high-resolution MP4 video. Everyone loved the video. Worth every penny.

I am delighted with the service that was provided to transfer thousands of feet of home movies to DVD with copies made for the family members. Most of these films were over 50 years od and we had never seen many of them. I would recommend this service to everyone trying to save their family history. Janice Bull

We had over 60 tapes that needed to be transferred, going back as far as 1992. I initially asked David yo transfer 6-8 tapes, and I was really impressed by the speed and quality of his work. A nice touch was the labelling and CD case in which they were placed. I have since returned and had all 60 tapes copied, and I was extremely happy with the outcome.

I had five VHS tapes that I hadn't viewed for 20 yrs and was procrastinating looking for someone to transfer them to DVD. I was really nervous to send them out to a franchise operation where I was just a number in case they were lost or damaged. These tapes were priceless family movies that could never be replaced. I found Home Video Studio through google and gave them a call. The personal and friendly response I received reassured me my tapes would be in safe hands to be transferred. Within a few days they called me back to pick them up. They are very nicely put together, titled and with excellent quality. I am so happy to have these now safe for future viewing and safekeeping. I sincerely say thank you for the personal care of such an important piece of my family history and I have, and will definitely recommend Home Video Studio to all my family and friends.

When I was hoping to view my cherished family videos that were on out-dated VHS formats, I discovered Homevideo and found David. His store was located a long way from our house in Ottawa and when I mentioned that I would have to go elsewhere he offered me free pick-up and delivery. Together with his clear communication of all the prices and possibilities, I am happy to recommend every aspect of his service. We are now watching valued memories in a format that we can access and I have a contact in the video world that is trustworthy and talented.

Thank you so much David for creating such a wonderful DVD of our childhood memories. We retrieved a few 8mm home movie reels from our parents’ basement where they had been for many years. I was concerned that because of the age of the reels, we wouldn’t be able to have them transferred to the new format. We are all absolutely thrilled with quality and the composition of the DVD. I will definitely be using Home Video Homes services again.

I had several Super 8 films transferred to DVD and I'm very happy with the quality and service provided. All of the films were separated into chapters which was nice and David put music in the background since they were silent films. The price was very reasonable as well in comparison to others in my area. I highly recommend Home Video Studio to anyone interested in getting transfers done.

Home Video Studio recently transferred 12, 8mm films on to DVD for our family. These films are 54 years old. We were not expecting great results but, were very pleasantly surprised to see how clear and bright they turned out. We have more films to be transferred and will definitely return to this company and have them complete the balance of our home videos. Highly recommend them.

For years I had a number of 8mm video tape from when the children were small and I finally got around to getting them transferred. Four business days after I dropped off my tapes I picked up my DVDs neatly packaged in a labeled case. I am very pleased with the results of the transfer. Each DVD has a scene index and it very easy to jump to the parts I want to see. In addition to DVDs for me and my wife, I got a set made for each of my children. They will be surprised and pleased with this gift on Christmas morning. HVS is highly recommended.

David has with limited instructions, done a wonderful job converting a collection of scenes from Super8 film my father took in the middle 80's.

My husband and I would like to thank you for your attention to detail in providing us with a valued DVD of a very old home movie on an 8mm reel - of our dear friends wedding some 57 years ago. We appreciate that this is a very busy time of year - but when we advised you that we would need this DVD a week prior to Christmas which would allow our friends to take it with them to their daughter's home in Oakville, you were agreeable to comply. We watched it before giving it to our friends and in our opinion it was excellent. Thank you for your promptness and caring.

I recently had David transfer some old 8 mm movies as well as treasured old audiotapes to DVD/CD and am very pleased with the quality. Years ago I had copied the 8 mm tapes to VHS but over time they have become worn or the tracking had gone awry. I was worried that all of my old recordings would be lost. However, I was able to gather up all of the originals and just hand them over to David who recorded them to DVD/CD and then labelled them neatly for storage. I was also able to copy them all to my external hard drive for even safer storage. Thank you very much David! There will be more to come.

Home video studio did a great job transferring my Super 8 movies into a digital form. Out of sheer curiosity I made a serious attempt to do the same using my D600 Nikon. I recorded the projected movie with my Nikon and although the recording itself was well focused with correct white balance and exposure ,the final outcome did not match the quality of David's transfer. I highly recommend his services and will certainly use Home Video Studio in the future.. Some services are best left to the professionals.

Thanks again for saving this old family recording...great job.

I had many years of old 8mm films that I feared were probably too old to revive. I found Dave on line and took them out to him. What a wonderful job he did! We had a movie night at the cottage and we all just loved seeing the "old times" come to life again. I now have many slides to be transferred and will once again be going to see Dave. You absolutely cannot go wrong picking Dave and I recommend him highly.

I used Home Video Studio to transfer some 25-year-old Video 8 tapes to DVD, rescuing the footage on them before the tapes started to crumble. The footage was of a four-month sailing voyage from Victoria, BC, to the South Pacific, so it's pretty precious to me. I'd already tried to do the transfer at home, but my own Video 8 machine turned out to have problems. I tried asking Costco Photo Service if they could transfer Video 8, but they couldn't tell me if the subcontractor they use could manage this. David at Home Video Studio did a beautiful transfer of the tapes to DVD, creating very helpful chapter divisions in the footage and giving me nicely printed DVD copies. His price was also a lot better than Costco's. I will definitely rely on his services again.

We were delighted recently with the results of a video transfer of a 30-year old super 8 movie of a family visit to Europe. We had tried other video transfer services and their result came nowhere close to the quality of the work done by David Gardner at Home Video Studio. We will most certainly have David transfer more of our family memories from film to DVD.

Thanks David for a job well done. I especially enjoyed the fact that I was able to get the 8mm movies in the digital format I needed for editing, and, that I could bring the movies to you and get them back myself. No third party transportation involved, and the risk of loosing 40 years old memories. Twenty years ago I had those movies transferred to video cassettes. What an improvement using the latest technology. Thanks again.

I first heard about David through my daughter's dance studio and found that he did a fabulous job with the filming of her recital.

I look forward to using his services once again this year at my daughter's dance recital.

I don't have anything but fabulous things to say about Home Video Studio! When an old home video belonging to my family from 1986 broke, I was devastated...I frantically started researching who could repair the tape for me, in hopes that all of my precious memories weren't lost forever. I came across Home Video Studio, and contacted David Gardner right away - who in turn responded to me just as quickly. He not only fixed my tape, he transferred it to DVD for me (at a great price), and it was shipped back to my house within days. I will definitely go back to David to transfer the rest of my home videos - excellent service!

The CD from film is clear, has good colour, is no longer jumpy, and of is course more available and easier to watch than the old film. I look forward to see the work he does when I bring him my favourite slides to be converted into some CDs.

Home Video Studio managed to complete my request without any problems even though I had provided a tight and somewhat hopeful deadline (because I had procrastinated). When my parents saw the video of their wedding on their anniversary, enhanced from the 8mm film they had originally recorded it on, I knew the effort was worth it. I definitely recommended this service and will gladly return with future projects.

It was my sister's wish to have a video of her life shown at her Celebration of Life service and reception. David did a beautiful job transferring to DVD some VHS footage that had originally been transferred from an old 8mm film to VHS several years ago. David then scanned in over 100 photos of my sister at various stages of her life, transferred some digital photos and added my sister's favourite music that we had provided to him on CDs. The end result was absolutely perfect and brought friends and family to tears.

I had a number of 8mm tapes that I had been waiting to have transferred for a very long time. My kids loved to watch the home movies, to such a degree that the tapes had become damaged. At Christmas I finally got around to calling various stores to price out what it would cost to have the 8mm tapes transferred to DVD. One quote was upwards of $300 for four tape transfers. Discouraged, I googled this service locally, and was thrilled to find David's business. When I called to confirm his pricing, I couldn't believe how affordable it was. David repaired my tapes, and transferred them all within a week or so. I was thrilled! Not to mention, he packaged all the DVDs very nicely, and each DVD comes with a scene index for easy viewing.

He can now show his two sons his wedding day,.I would definately recommend this service and it was easy to find off the Queenway coming from Alymer.Good luck with your business. Lois

I received three reels of Super 8 film from my father-in-law with the intent on scanning them myself. The film kept breaking in any projector, so we could not view them anymore. After quickly realizing how daunting this task would be I gave the reels to David. His sprocketless film advancer was gentle on the film and the digital files are amazing to watch. His service is quick, professional and definitely worth every penny. If I find more of these reels I would give them to David to transfer in a second.

It was great to get rid of the 2 shopping bags of my parents home movies. The service was quick and friendly. The set up is totally professional and reassuring, not a semi hobby scenario. We will be having our own movies done shortly

I am over the moon with the DVD that was made from 8mm film reels, I had no idea what was on them dating back to 1950, The images of siblings with hula hoops, myself as a small child and the Queen's visit to our hometown in 1959 have been transformed into a lasting legacy...David did us proud and I even liked the music, Bravo! Just ordered 3 more for family members, very reasonable prices and quality work!

Great job! I had been lugging around a load of old 8 mm films for years, and no longer even had a projector to show them. Now I have them in digital format on my computer, and can enjoy them all over again. What's more, I can edit them at will, something that was dificult to do with the originals.

Just viewed family pictures you transfered from batamax to DVD and slides to CD. It was wonderful. I have not seen these pictures in over 30 years and was thrilled to find a photo of my son at 2 with his grandfather (my dad) - the only clear one in existence. I found many photos taken 40 years ago that brought back such wonderful memories. Thanks for the great job and for the memories David.

I am very happy with the work David did, transfering family VCR home videos to CD home videos. David took the time to help me sort through my videos and relabel them before he got started so it was easier for me to match up the VCR tape with the appropriate new CD. As well David re-did some labels for me which I really appreciated. I would reccomend the services of Home Video Studio. Thank you for your professional service, Debbie

Home Video Studio

DVDs have been the state-of-the-art for more than ten years in the video and home movie transfer industry. In fact, Home Video Studio still transfers video to DVDs for our customers who request that service.

But there's a new kid in town - The DVA - the Home Video Studio - Video in the Cloud. DVA is the latest technology and it is fast becoming the media of choice. These days we most often transfer everyone's old VHS, BetaMAX, 8mm and Mini DV tapes to DVAs rather than DVDs.
