The above programs are available on DVD. The prices shown are generally based on the number of disks and the proceeds less the cost of the disks are used to amortize the cost of the camera. The original intent of this effort was that once the cost of the equipment was recovered the Club would maintain a “loaner” copy of each disk that would be made available to any member in good standing free of charge. We are about half way there at this point, so support your local sheriff. Personal copies may still be purchased but since it is very labor intensive to convert and transfer the files from the camera to DVD the cost to do so will likely be more than what the Club is presently charging. One other thing; In addition to standard definition our camera is capable of producing an excellent high definition picture, not so much with the sound maybe. The recordings are generally made in high definition and any issues with picture quality is due to the inadequacies of the cameraman. We have had a couple of instances where the disks would not run on some older players. They will run on any blu-ray or high definition DVD player. They may not run on some older DVD players and they will not run on a CD player. If you have an older player and would prefer to have standard definition disks be sure to mention this when ordering but keep in mind that picture quality will be compromised.
