As years go by, analog media such as videotape begin to decay, slowly withering away until they finally become unsalvageable. Fortunately, the digitization experts at Reel Pro Video prevent weddings, birthdays, and the series finale of Kojak from fading into oblivion, transferring VHS, Beta, 8mm, and other outdated formats onto DVD. The staff can also digitize slides and pictures, as well as create digital photomontages—complete with background music. Reel Pro Video works with clients throughout the United States; its customers can mail in tapes and pictures.
The celluloid specialists at ScanDigital turn grainy 3"x5" photos and dented VHS tapes into dependable digital files that fill the future with the pleasant retrospections and introspections of a warm and wonderful past.

The digitization process includes photo color correction and cleaning and prepping film to ensure the highest possible transfer quality. Go online and fill out a form that generates a shipping label, then mail the materials. After about a week, you get back the original copies along with their new, high-quality clones on DVD.
The shutterbug instructors at Shoot Like A Pro cement photographic know-how into their clients’ craniums through technical lessons and onsite practice. During workshops and excursions, students first learn to manipulate their own cameras, picking up tips about ISO, f-stop, shutter speed and composition before testing their skills during two hours of shooting time. Shoot Like A Pro’s events lend themselves to all types of digital cameras as well as to beginner photographers and more experienced students looking to refresh their skills.
