Is It Worth Converting Old Film To DVD? An Expert Answers

Converting old film to DVDs (digital video disc) is something that more people are considering these days. Many households have boxes of old home movies they can’t watch anymore. Without a projector, viewing old films is impossible. Few people have functioning projectors anymore, and nobody knows anybody who does. Those old films will just keep sitting in a box, gathering dust and deteriorating with time.

Is it worth converting if you have old home movies sitting in boxes? Our expert team here at Reborn has been answering this question for years—and our answer is a resounding yes! So, why do we think you should complete the conversion process now? Read on to find out.

Old Film Deteriorates

Film, like slides or negatives, deteriorates in several ways. First, it becomes increasingly brittle over time. At some point, it becomes impossible to watch. As soon as you attempt to watch it, the film will break.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, there’s another problem to keep in mind. The color on the actual film will start to fade. Just like old photos, film color deteriorates too. Eventually, the beauty of your recordings will be lost to time.

Finally, there’s another issue for you to consider: mold. It’s the number one enemy of film. Mold will eat your precious film away and destroy your cherished images. Once the mold sets in, your film will be completely unwatchable. And, of course, where do most people keep their old home movies? People keep their memories in attics and basements where mold has a habit of growing in the damp and humid surroundings.

Restoration Of Quality

The digital conversion process allows your film’s quality to be restored. It’s even possible to enhance old film with color and light correction. We can upgrade your old films to today’s modern resolution. There are plenty of other options available to make your film conversion the best that it can be.

Accessibility And Convenience

One of the top reasons to convert your old films to DVD or digital formats is accessibility. It goes without saying that your old films are hardly convenient to watch. They’re a long way from being accessible right now!

When they’re in a DVD or digital format, though, they’re simple to access and watch. You won’t need a traditional film projector. You can watch them on any device, from a PC or TV to a smartphone or tablet. The means you can watch them away from your home or even on the move if you want. It doesn’t get more convenient than that.

Even better, digital formats are super simple to share with others, too. You can email, message, Bluetooth, or even AirDrop the files to a friend or family member who’s sure to love watching them.

Easy Storage

It’s pretty easy to see that DVDs are less challenging to store than old films. Old film reels are big and bulky and take up a lot of space. Thanks to their slim format, DVDs are simple to store in drawers or shelves. Digital files are even easier to store on a tiny flash drive or even in the cloud, saving you a ton of space.
