Hi there, my first post here. :)

I'm after a tape adapter that converts an old small video camcorder tape to a VCR size tape. I think it is called a VHS-C tape adapter.

I have tried trademe but no luck.

Not cheap - couldnt see any second hand ones available.


Might be worth rining around a few independant camera/video shops - might have old stock.
