Like an old pair of sweatpants, VHS tapes can become too worn and sweaty to work properly. Turn your ratty tapes into crystal-clear DVD memories with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one media transfer to DVD at Camera Corner (a $25 value).
A family-owned business serving the film and photography needs of northeast Wisconsin since 1953, Camera Corner's media-processing services painstakingly transfer delicate home movies onto compact, durable DVDs. The in-house team of video virtuosos bestow sturdy discs with up to 120 minutes of footage delicately extracted from VHS, Beta, 8mm, Hi8, and other film-based mediums––preserving your parents' wedding, your dog's high school graduation, and your own Dadaism-themed 6th birthday party for future audiences. Though not covered by this Groupon, additional copies of transferred materials are available at a discounted rate, starting at $8.99 each for 2–9 extra copies.
Camera Corner opened its doors more than a half-century ago, starting with just 800 sq. ft. and two employees, supplementing its growing audio-visual services with greeting-card sales. Today, the third-generation business has expanded to nearly 30,000 sq. ft. and bustles with more than 100 employees ready to handle technological snafus, restore and enlarge photographs, and rent out projector screens for pre-vacation family briefings. The knowledgeable IT workers—who count ten Apple-certified specialists among their ranks—equip clients with computers and technology from all major brands, including products such as the iPad and iPhone, and sweep in to rescue data after crashes or fix keyboards after soda spills. Their photo and video specialists outfit shutterbugs and cinephiles with digital cameras and repair cracked lenses for manufactures such as Sony, Kodak, Canon, and Panasonic. The staff can even help safely dispose of used and broken equipment, collecting old computers, TVs, circuit boards, and cameras for transport to a hazardous waste facility, to ensure old technology doesn’t wind up in landfills or hitchhike its way back home.
