Is Magicsmith the company that produced the VHS tapes? If Magicsmith is just the dealer, then I don't think they could help us. We would have to target Gregory Wilson himself I think, I bet it would be his decision as to whether or not they are released on DVD. If anyone has any ideas on where to write to request this DVD, please let us know!! There are a lot of magicians who would LOVE to own this material on a DVD.

I think VHS if fine for this set of tapes. I think they are among the best value in magic.

DVDs are really needed for encyclopedia type stuff or things that require excellent slo-mo quality.

Nothing on these tapes requries any difficult slights.

I bought the tapes after seeing his lecture, which, to date, is the best magic lecture I've ever seen.
He was there for about 4 hours doing wonderful stuff that you felt you could do yourself. No expensive props, no wild presentations that don't suit your personality.

His video is just very usable stuff done in an impromptu real-world setting.

Yea Frank i agree with you. By the way ive had these videos for about a week now and really love them. The effects are so powerful and there are enough to keep you busy...ive only started workin on about 3 i have a few more i wanna practice. i have a question though to those who have it...How do you guys find that "off beat" moment for head trip. i sometimes get caught with it. anyyhing that u tell the person or do to get them in that off beat zone greg talks about.

Frank the main point where I don't agrre with is that VHS quality is low and it alters rapidly with time. After a lot of viewings the quality drops and VHS are very easily altered. You don't have this problem with DVD and you can gring the DVD with you do watch it on your laptop PC when you travel.
That's why I allways get DVD material when I can.

I agree one hundred percent with Cardfan. I find DVD formats sooo much easier. I can with a click of a button rewatch the move over and over again, without having to rewind it and then play it. And not to mention with VHS it's almost like each time you do play it you are slowly but surely wearing out your investment. When I have to buy thing on VHS I just hook them up to my comp and burn them to a CDR. That way in effect it's the same as DVD. But I'm restricted to my comptuer. It would be lovely if I did have DVD burner.
