I recently got an old Mini DV Sony Camera (DCR-PC7E PAL) to backup an old Mini DV tape I found and wanted to check if anyone here wanted there tape/s captured?
I realize lots of people already offer this service, but when I looked around I couldn't find anyone who would just do a raw data transfer to PC, and not re-encode it. In this day and age, space isn't really an issue, and I hate to compress old footage down any more then is absolutely necessary.
I would transfer the footage (without re-encoding) and then upload it to Google drive (or other site) for you to download.
50 minutes is about 10GB

I'm in Hawkes Bay, if you want to ship tapes to me, I'd recommend TradeMe's courier booking service, as they've usually got the best rates.
$20 per tape. (if your tapes have mold or are dirty, I won't try clean or capture them, only clean tapes please)
Free return courier of tape/s.
This offer will only be valid for about a week, as I'd like to sell on the old camera and gear, just figured I'd check if anyone wanted some raw transfers before I sell it.
Disclaimer: I realise the DV format isn't lossless, I just mean it's a lossless transfer without any re-encoding.
