Before you jump into the world of digital
video, it is important to understand the
difference between analog and digital video and
why analog video is no longer an acceptable form
of video if you are living in modern times!
Understanding Digital Video
Congratulations! You have just purchased a
new digital camcorder. Although you may have used a
camcorder before, technology has evolved and the
new features of a digital video camera can be
overwhelming. StashSpace believes itís a good
idea to get to know your camcorder a little bit
before you do the fun part -- record video! Some
of the terms may not be familiar to you, but
reviewing them will help you to become a skilled videographer in no time!
Getting to know your New Digital Camcorder
Every time you sit down with your
parents or grandparents, it's possible they will share a
story about something they experienced in their past or
something about another family member that you didn't
know. These highlights of your personal history
are important to preserve on video and
friends and family.

Your Video Transfer Online
The issues around DVD compatibility are many and at times, confusing.
DVD players that are able to play Hollywood
movies may sometimes not play DVDs that you burn on your
computer or receive from a Video Transfer Service (such as stashSpace).
This is because of a core difference between the discs - Hollywood movies
are manufactured into a DVD (where the DVD is all one piece - also known
as "Replicated DVDs"), whereas DVD-R media or DVD+R media that you
create on a computer is actually has the movie information physically
burned by a laser onto a pre-manufactured disc.

Today's standard delivery for your wedding video is
on DVD. This new digital video format offers
superior quality, convenience and video preservation...
but unfortunately, all DVDs are not created equal.
Many consumer and professional DVD software applications
use low-end software based DVD encoders
to create the DVD video, resulting in a low-quality DVD.
This usually is noticeable in lackluster color and loss
of fine detail on your Wedding DVD.
Wedding Video on DVD
Your wedding day will be a blur to you and
your parents. You plan the many details for
months, if not years, but your wedding day goes
by so fast that you will miss a large part of
it. A wedding video is like a "time
machine". It lets you relive your wedding day as often as you like, anytime you
>> Read Why Have Wedding
Some couples use a friend or family member to
videotape their wedding day. Would you have a
friend or family member take all of your wedding
photographs? Probably not. You don't want
to have a friend or relative running out of tape or
batteries, not shooting important activities, and taking
shaky or bad footage. And chances are, you will
end up with a very uninteresting video that fails to
capture the best moments of your wedding, and it will
sit unwatched for years to come.
