How To Calculate Film Footage

50-foot reel

A 50-foot reel will fit in the palm of your hand and is about 3 inches wide.

Running time: about 3 minutes

200-foot reel

A 200-foot reel is about 5 inches wide, the size of a CD or DVD.

Running time: about 13 minutes

400-foot reel

Remember 45-rpm records? A 400-foot reel is about the same size.

Running time: about 25 minutes

Your boxes may be labeled, "Double 8, 25 feet." Old 8mm movie cameras used a 25-foot roll of 16mm film. When this film was processed in Kodak's lab, it was slit down the center, becoming two 25-foot film strips, 8 millimeters wide. These strips were then spliced together. The result: 50 feet of film. Old movie reels often have a footage scale. If your reel isn't full, the scale can help to estimate how much film is on the reel.

How We Digitize Your Film Reels


Cleaning & Repairing

Our expert technicians carefully examine, clean, and repair your film footage to prepare it for digitization. Every effort is made to remove surface dust and debris to ensure an accurate and clear conversion. If your footage is on 50-ft reels, we'll splice them onto larger, 400-foot reels. Any damaged areas of your film will be repaired if possible, and large sections of blank footage will be removed. Our approach is professional and thorough, ensuring the best possible outcome for your precious memories.


Transfer & Monitoring

Our broadcast-grade archival system ensures that your film is digitized with the utmost care, frame-by-frame, directly from the emulsion surface. Our technicians monitor the entire process, making necessary adjustments for color balance and contrast to ensure a top-quality transfer. We firmly believe that nothing beats the trained human eye in this process. Our attention to detail ensures that you will receive a product that meets your expectations.


Convenient & Secure Storage

We provide an archival-grade DVD that is capable of lasting for 100+ years with every film transfer order. These DVDs can be played in virtually all standard DVD players and blu-ray players. If you wish to share your memories with your loved ones, we can provide you with extra copies.

To ensure that your memories are future-proofed, you can opt for a USB flash drive along with your film to DVD order (available for free on orders over 1,500 ft). This flash drive will contain MP4 digital files that can be stored and viewed on modern digital devices like phones, tablets, and computers. Flash drives are a safe and convenient way to view and share your newly digitized memories with friends and family. Furthermore, these files can be edited directly from your computer.
