8mm, Super 8 and 16mm Movie Film to DVD Transfer
We digitally convert 8mm, Super 8, and 16mm film to DVD. All film is inspected
prior to transfer and cleaned/spliced as required. Any size reels are accepted.
Super 8 with magnetic sound as well as both
optical and magnetic 16mm are supported!
Our film transfer service is priced by the
foot. Since the various formats and types of film are priced
differently, we ask that
you bring your reels into the store
do a footage count and give you an exact price. All film jobs
include a backup set of DVDs that you can archive for safe keeping.
||All film to
DVD transfers include a master copy (in Red case), copies
to watch (in Black case), thermal print on the DVDs, and a
cover that shows the running time and photos of the beginning
of each 5 minute chapter point.
All work is performed on site and original
materials will be returned.

||What’s the difference between 8mm and Super 8?
In the 1960's, Kodak was looking for a way to improve the quality
of 8mm "home movies" without requiring wider film like
16mm. In 1965 Kodak product engineers designed a film frame that
was about 50% larger on the same width film by simply making the
sprocket holes smaller than Standard 8mm. The new film, "Super
8" could be shot with the same economy as Regular 8mm, and
projectors that could show both sizes of film could be easily
manufactured for customers with a library of older films. Super
8 with Sound became available in August of 1973.
Have Technicolor Super 8 MAGI-CARTRIDGES?
These were the looping cartidges that needed a special playback machine.
We will rebuild them for you and transfer to DVD. The Super 8 film will be removed from the cartridges and placed on standard 50 foot reels. Your original cartridges and boxes will be returned.
Contact us for details.
Is your film rusty, moldy, stinky, or dirty?
Has it gotten wet or been in a fire?
We've dealt with all of these situations and can salvage what's left of your precious memories.
If your film smells like vinegar, it probably has what's known as Vinegar Syndrome - the acetate film base is degrading. There's not much you can do about it, except get it transfered as soon as possible. We can usually run film in the early stages without any problems. As the degradation continues it becomes more difficult to get a good transfer.
