Record While Playing

In what is probably the easiest method to digitize Super 8mm film at home, you can use a digital camera, camcorder, or even your phone camera to record the film as it plays through on the projector. Then, you can transfer that recording as a digital file to your hard drive using an SD card or email. While this is easy and affordable, the results are likely to show glares, produce outside noises, and appear jittery because of the different framerate between the Super 8 film format (16 frames per second) and modern cameras (30 frames per second).


  • Affordable
  • Easy to do it yourself


  • Poor quality that looks jittery, shows glares and may contain outside noise
  • Time-consuming because it converts at a normal playback speed
  • Recording conditions must be quiet, clean, flat, and uninterrupted

Film Scanner Equipment

A Super 8 film scanner can be a great do-it-yourself option to convert your home movies into digital format, but they are primarily designed for tech-savvy users. One of the best Super 8 film conversion options is the Kodak Scanza which costs $149 on Amazon. It’s easy to use, provides on-screen step-by-step instructions, and offers a variety of saving options. If you are on a budget, there are options like the DIGITNOW film and slide scanner ( available for $64.99) that doesn’t require a computer because it scans the slides conveniently to an SD card and offers an LCD screen to show you the results in real time. Despite these low costs, the options that produce the best results, like the Wolverine Data Film2Digital MovieMaker, can cost $330 or more.
