VHS > PC: Best tools
« on: June 24, 2019, 07:52:04 AM »
Quick question, looking for tools to buy.

What do I need to transfer VHS tapes to pc.

Just excellent quality - easy to use. Just transfer. I figure there is a lot you can do in postproduction, but there is no real need too. Budget 100 euro's?

I bought an ION Video to SD recently to transfer some old VHS tapes. It records directly to SD card; only a single choice on codec and resolution. It's a good quick and dirty option: simple to use and well within your budget.
