Customer Review: "We could not be happier with the conversion of over 3000 feet of l963-80 8mm movie film to DVD by your firm. The finished DVDs exhibit a higher viewing quality than the original films you converted. A treasured 1963 film was barely viewable using our projector. It now looks like it was shot in 2016!" Ginny Allen - Auburn, Alabama

How To Determine Film Reel Sizes
50-foot Reel A fifty-foot reel will fit the palm of your hand. Time: about 3 minutes.
200-foot Reel A 200-foot reel is about the size of a CD or DVD. Time: about 13 minutes.
400-foot Reel Remember 45-rpm records? A 400-ft reel is the same size. Time: about 26 minutes.
We charge the same price for all film types.
We transfer 16mm optical sound. Super-8 sound film has a brown magnetic stripe at the edge.
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.
You only pay for the film footage that is transferred. You are not charged for blank footage or film that cannot be digitized. All films, reels and boxes are returned.
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.
