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.

VHS to Digital overtaking VHS to DVD !

8mm Film to Digital is also growing

By Jamey Nordby - August 1, 2018

5 years ago, nearlyl 90% of videtape conversions were VHS to DVD. Now nearly 50% of all videotape conversions are VHS to Digital

As more and more consumers become comfortable wtih digital tehnology, converting VHS to mp4, quicktime, or AVI is growing rapidly. While DVD's are still popular, digital formats for a computer are 1) editable 2) sharable and 3) easy to backup.

If editing is desired - DVD is NOT the way to go. What is needed is a format that today's video editing programs support. 

If sharing is desired - DVD is NOT the way to go. What is needed is a format that can be shared via dropbox, youtube, email, etc.

If backup is desired - DVD is NOT the way to go. Backup for DVD is simply making more copies. This does not prevent DVD technology from becoming obsolete - you just have more copies of old technology. What is needed is a format that can be included in normal backup and cloud backup systems. 

DVDs are a fading technology. While still useful, DVD will not be here in 50 years. Digital, even if it changes formats, will be around as long as computers are around. 

8mm Film to Digital

join VHS to Digital, Videotape to Digital and Cassette to Digital

By Jamey Nordby - July 3, 2018

Videotape to Digital, including VHS to Digital, and Cassette to Digital among other conversions - have become common over the past 5 years. 8mm Film to Digital is starting to catch up - even if it has been converted to DVD in the past. 

Converting 8mm Film to Digital is a very different process than videotape - mostly because it is a visual process, not a magnetic process. As such, scanning as much of the film as possible with good scanning equipment as possible is the key to a great digital experience. 

In fact, a complete scan of every frame is critical. Once this is done, then color correction, contrast adjustment, and finally compiling into a great video - create a great video of your old films. 

Many people ask if we can covert old VHS tapes that were made from the old 8mm film and 16mm film. The answer is Yes! but the technology has changed dramatically since then, so converting from the original will create the best digital video now.
