So i have a lot of family videos on several analog media (VHS-C, Super VHS, Hi-8 and 8mm) that i want to finally convert to something not so vulnerable to aging, DVD being an option but Blu-Ray saying “me! me!” on my head.
Even the fact that I have several workstations with professional level video capture devices, those machines are usually working doing renders or any other thing and is not that I can waste days capturing all that media there, so i decided to buy one of those EasyCap devices on eBay and give it a try.
The specifications are pretty outstanding for what it is, and specially, for the $15 price… AND it is compatible with Mac OS (by using the non-free VideoGlide app) which makes it even better.
Just some highlights:
- Complies with Universal Serial Bus Specification Rev 2.0
- Supports NTSC, PAL (B), Video format
- Video input: RCA composite or S-Video
- Audio input: Stereo audio (RCA)
- Dimension(Main Body): 8.8cm x 2.8cm x 1.8cm typical credit card size is 8.5cmx5.4cm)
- Powers by USB
- Supports high quality video resolution for
- NTSC: 720 x 480 @30fps
- PAL: 720 x 576 @25fps
Im still waiting for it to arrive, and i will post several video examples and personal impressions as soon as i get it.
