I recently picked up a JVC-HR-S4800U / DMR-ES15 / DVK-100 to do some transfers since my family and all their friends are apparently worried about their tapes degrading.

I just started doing this and initial testing on some other videos is going well but one tape in particular is having some issues. The quality is pretty bad in general. It's a wedding video and the whole thing was shot in dim lighting.

There is this flickering problem where the whole picture seems to go negative for a moment and its always on the same frames. It happens throughout the video. I'm assuming it's just the tape but could it be anything else? Any chance that jerk companies didn't want customers duplicating their wedding videos? No idea

I guess worst case I could just go through it and remove all the frames, add some sort of transition between.
Maybe some sort of filter can do the trick.

If you look at my files its the "sceme" 514.
... so I was asking why there was massive flashing going on one of my vhs tapes. It was a wedding video and it was shot in the dark. I couldn't figure out why single frames looked like they became negatives of the frame next to it.

The poof, my brain started functioning.

Camera flashes

I almost forgot they are a thing.

Decent budget setup, should serve you well.

Yep, flash photography and video did not mix, especially with VHS.

Not a dumb question, but good observation. I have no doubt somebody else will have an identical question at some point. And they can read this post.
