Our Process

How We Convert Film to Digital

Once you've made the decision to upgrade your collection of old film reels to digital or films to DVD, we've got your back here at Nostalgic Media with over 30 years of experience.

At Nostalgic Media, we get how important your memories are. Some places send your films to faraway countries for conversion – not us. We do everything right here in Atlanta, GA, with our skilled team making sure your memories are handled with care.

No need to worry about dealing with far-off customer service or shipping your films overseas. With us, you can talk directly to our experts handling your movies. We know your memories are priceless, and we go out of our way to keep them safe during the whole conversion process.

Cleaning & Repair

A dedicated film transfer technician inspects, cleans, and performs essential repairs on your film footage before digitization. We prioritize precision, ensuring film is cleaned to remove surface dust and debris for a clear and accurate conversion during the digital film transfer.

50-ft reels will be spliced together onto larger, archival 400-ft reels, optimizing long-term preservation. Damaged film sections will be repaired whenever possible and sections of extensive blank footage will be removed.

Technician Monitoring

We understand the value of your memories, and that's why we go the extra mile. Throughout the digitizing process, your precious film is monitored by a dedicated technician. This hands-on approach ensures that each frame is captured with precision, maintaining the integrity of your home movies.

Secure Storage

Each order comes with a complimentary DVD, providing a tangible and timeless backup for your digitized moments. For film orders exceeding 1,500 feet of film, we provide a free USB flash drive – a high-capacity storage solution ensuring secure preservation. And, for seamless on-demand access from all of your modern devices, we offer a digital download link upon request.

Our storage options are designed to safeguard your memories at every step. Customers trust us as the best 8mm film transfer service for the convenience and peace of mind that comes with our offering of secure and accessible storage options. Your memories deserve the best – digitize your film and enjoy the convenience and dependability of our dedicated service.

Testimonials

Trusted by Thousands of Families
& Top-Organizations


  • "Very thrilled

    with the outcome of the 70 year old slides that you converted to digital files for me. The end product was a lot better than I expected. This was the first time I have seen pictures of my father from when he was a young boy in the 1950s. He passed last year and these keepsakes are very treasured."

    Stephen S.

  • "I was very pleased

    with Nostalgic Media. First, leading up to placing my order, I called them and got someone on the phone immediately, no 1 minute recording. My questions were answered and I submitted my material and payment. The sending was quick and I was notified of shipping dates. Would use their services again."

    Tom R.

  • "Nostalgic media delivered

    just as they advertised. They converted my 55+ year old 8mm reels into digital media and now my family can relive some golden moments that I had feared were lost to memory. They were fast and gave me a product better than what I had hoped for. I recommend them without hesitation."

Frequently Asked Questions

Understanding Our Film Conversion Service

  • Yes. All film reels will be returned with your completed order.

  • We are able to transfer your reels in the order you specify but with one important guideline to follow: We cannot mix different film types. For example, we are unable to convert Super 8 reels in the middle of Regular 8 reels, and vice versa. If you have numbered your reels in a way that different film types are mixed together, we cannot guarantee that the individual order of reels will be kept.

  • Yes. We are able to transfer Super 8 sound film and 16mm optical sound film.

  • Average turnaround time is 7 business days in-house. Allow longer processing times during the holidays.

  • Although there is no minimum number of reels you must send, we do have a minimum charge of $30 for all film conversion services. So, if the quantity of film to digitize results in a cost of less than $30, the $30 minimum applies.

  • All film orders are standard definition transfers.

  • 1 DVD is included free for all film transfer orders. 1 free USB flash drive is included for orders of 1,500 feet. Digital download links are also available. Extra DVDs and USB flash drives can be added for an additional cost. Call for detailed pricing info.

  • Our film conversion service is available to customers in the lower 48 US states.

  • You can ship your film to us or drop them off at our facility in Atlanta, GA. Even for smaller film orders, we highly recommend using a sturdy box if shipping an order to us. Bubble wrap and newspaper are great ways to fill space and protect your film from damage during transit.
