Due to falling costs and increasing popularity, a lot of couples in the UK now own DVD players though some households still retain their old VHS players. HD player ownership is very low at present due to high costs and the choice between two competing formats (Blu-Ray and HD-DVD) which is compounding the situation. That said, revisit this article in 12 months and there is a decent chance that this will no longer be the case.
At the present time, DVD is rightfully so the best all round choice for your Wedding movie, although you will find that HD will surpass it in the next few years as prices tumble. VHS trails in a long way back in third I’m afraid, so if possible we would strongly recommend that you upgrade your home VHS player and get hold of some new technology – you will not regret it.
Now you know a little bit more about the four main technical areas of Wedding Videography, you can confidently speak to any cameraman safe in the knowledge that they won’t be able to pull the wool over your eyes – so get out there and let the techno-babble begin!
