8mm Film to Digital - The Way It Should Be Done

  1. Your priceless film must be cared for properly and the transfer done with the correct process in order for your reborn home movies to be their very best. 
  2. Every reel in an 8mm film to Digital project must be thoroughly cleaned. This requires microfiber cleaning cloths and antistatic cleaner designed specifically to clean 8mm film. 
  3. The film needs to be captured frame-by-frame. Don’t be fooled by projector-based capture when every frame is needed for a true transfer from film to digital.
  4. Most film color fades over time. Moreover, not every film was originally taken with the best lighting and exposure. Insist on color and exposure correction to be included in the price that you pay. This includes both capture-based and post capture editing correction for back lighting and color. 
  5. Most film has blank spots at the beginning, end and occasionally in the middle – these should be edited out of the final product. 
  6. Your film deserves basic custom menus and scenes included in the basic price for that professional transfer look and fee.
  7. Depending on your needs, you need the choice between SD and DH video.

The Best 8mm Film to Digital equipment is crucial

  • Safety – you don’t want to risk damage to your film – there is no backup! The right transfer equipment is designed for Zero Image Contact area. No sprockets, claws, or pinch rollers touch your film – insuring that damage to aging, brittle film, is prevented by design.
  • Quality – a film scan frame by frame insures that the integrity of your film is preserved and that the quality of the film transfer is optimal. A true scan of your film is night and day different from a ‘picture of a picture’.
  • Video Clarity - Cutting edge solid state scanning equipment insures that you get the truest capture of your film possible. If you are incurring the cost and effort to transfer film – you only want a great home movie with the best picture possible.

Capturing Every Frame Makes all the Difference

By Jamey Nordby - January 6, 2018

Whether you convert 8mm Film to DVD or choose 8mm Film to Digital if you wish to preserve your memories, it is important to have a backup strategy. 

There are several choices to confidently backup your digital investment:
  1. If you watch video on DVD, be sure to get a 2nd copy. Once the conversion work is done, the copies are cheap. Watch one copy, and save the other in a safe place.
  2. If you watch your video via digital files on computer, apple TV, etc. then keep multiple copies. Separate external hard drives, USB drives, multiple computers, and Cloud are all good backup methods.
The investment in Film to DVD or Film to Digital conversion is significant. Backing up your investment is very cheap insurance.
