DVCAM to MiniDV Conversion?

Does anyone know if it is easy to get a tape on DVCAM converted to MiniDV?

Do video stores offer that service?

Any in NYC?

I have my original wedding video on DVCAM, which is of no particular use to me, but MiniDV would be great.

Thanks,

David

Is it on the LARGE DvCam cassette, or the smaller one? A DSR 11 deck will play the larger cassettes as well as the smaller. Those cams that record in DVCAM mode on the smaller cassettes will play both.

just transfer the footage to your PC/Mac through firewire and re-transfer to miniDV(SP) through the same cable (you might need to split the video a point to switch to another tape. miniDV is only 60mins in SP mode)

Jack - I don't have a device that can read the large DVCAM tape.
