Cast your mind back to the dozens of VHS tapes lying in a box in your attic ranging from Disney classics to The Lion King. While those are not valuable, there are numerous VHS video tapes in existence that are worth quite a lot of money.

LIMITED EDITION VHS TAPES
Due to that fact there are not many copies of each tape, certain VHS tapes have become rather valuable. Overwhelmingly the majority of films are the horror genre with many banned quickly after their release. We suggest looking for VHS tapes that never made it to DVD or Blue-ray.

SO WHY ARE VHS BECOMING VALUABLE?
VHS collectors cite that current movies feel too cleaned-up on DVD and Blu-ray. They enjoy the mistakes made and the bad makeup and imperfections. Watching them on VHS is closer to the old drive-in or grind-house theatre, the way the director intended it to look.

VHS CONVERSION
At Oxford Duplication Centre, when you bring your tapes in for duplication, we ensure to advise clients about their other VHS tapes. Currently we have helped save several clients many hundred of pounds because they have had VHS tapes on the valuable list! How exciting for them and for us.

The Repair Shop - How To Spot A Ferrotype Camera 1855-1940s

After watching The Repair Shop on BBC1 restore a beautiful and rather rare ferrotype camera I thought a blog on the process would be interesting. Not only did they repair but they managed to have the camera working, taking photographs. This was very inspirational given the age of the camera. ABOUT FERROTYPE PROCESS Ferrotypes first appeared in America in the 1850s, but didn’t become popular in Britain until the 1870s. They were still being made by while-you-wait street photographers as late as the 1950s. The ferrotype process was a variation of the collodion positive, and used a similar process to  wet plate photography . A very underexposed negative image was produced on a thin iron plate. It was blackened by painting, lacquering or enamelling, and coated with a collodion photographic emulsion. The dark background gave the resulting image the appearance of a positive. Unlike collodion positives, ferrotypes did not need mounting in a case to produce a positive i
