When the first camcorders started making their way into homes across America, they were big and clunky, and captured video onto the unwieldy video format of VHS. They were essentially VCRs with zoom lenses and battery packs. Recording your daughter’s basketball championship game was more of a an upper body workout than playing the game itself. While VHS tapes and VCRs remained the primary format for viewing the final product, the race was on to create smaller tape formats and smaller more affordable and easy to use video cameras. The new formats generally came with adapters that worked with VCRs so that they could be viewed in the family living room, or transferred to VHS.
Enter the VHS-C videocassette tape. At one inch thick, four inches wide, and two inches tall, VHS-C tapes (about the size of a rubber duckie) seemed like a sleek compact car compared to the stodgy family station wagon that was VHS. What you gained in mobility on the recording end, you lost in needing an adaptor to play on a VCR or copy to VHS. Save yourself the time and don’t even try and go looking for a VHS-C to VHS adaptor nowadays. Nothing is going to play those old VHS-C tapes. Well, hold on, I can think of one thing—the VHS-C to DVD transfer machines in our Legacybox studios.
Never mind that the equipment to play these tapes is harder to find than mammoth tusks. Your bigger concern should be that the tape inside the VHS-C tapes is breaking down. It has already been going on for a while. Magnetic tape begins deteriorating 15 years after it was made. The colors are fading, the edges of the pictures are deteriorating. It is only a matter of time before they are unsalvageable. Time is like a house fire, but it happens slowly enough that you might not notice. Pretty soon, it will be as if the joy of winning that championship game never happened at all.
