16mm film is resilient, but won’t last forever unless you convert the film into high-quality digital files to ensure your memories will last for generations.
Protect old film from potential damage, floods, fires, theft, and more by turning them into digital copies.
After the 16mm transfer process, you can easily rename, archive, and add information to your digital videos.
Instead of wasting space with 16mm reels, you can preserve digital files on your computer, hard drive, flash drive, or in the cloud on iCloud, Google Photos, or Dropbox.
Film projectors aren’t common anymore, but when you digitize your home movies you make it easy for all your loved ones to enjoy for years to come.
With digital files, you can share your 16mm family memories with your loved ones over social media or email, so they won’t have to fight over physical copies.
When you convert 16mm film to digital, you can instantly use platforms like Google Photos for advanced search, archive, and reminder features.
After you transfer 16mm film to digital, you can use video editing software to generate high-definition motion picture quality and even create new memories by combining old footage with new.
There are several options to transfer 16mm film to digital including DIY options as well as professional film conversion services that create high-quality versions of your family memories.
You can digitize 16mm film (or other formats like 8mm film, Blu-rays, DVDs, or VHS tapes) at home with a digital camera, camcorder, or phone by recording the film as it plays through on the film projector. This creates digital files on your recording device that you can then transfer to an SD card, through email, or to a hard drive. It’s certainly easy and affordable, but the results are typically below average. Since you are recording a video of a video, it can show glares, record outside noises, and appear jittery because of the different framerate between the 16mm film format (24 frames per second) and modern cameras (30 frames per second).
A 16mm film transfer machine can be a great do-it-yourself option to convert your home movies into digital format, but many of the best film transfer options, like the Kodak Scanza, do not work with 16mm film (they only work for 8mm and Super 8 film types). Few 16mm film scanners exist, and you can find some for around $150 on Amazon, but you have to be careful to get one that works with 16mm film. Also, try to find a model with step-by-step instructions if you’re not tech-savvy.
We pride ourselves on producing the best quality digital transfers for your 16mm film. Plus, you can achieve peace of mind with 24/7 tracking every step of the way using our sophisticated security system.

Even though your 16 mm movie film won’t last forever, the precious memories contained in the film can be enjoyed for generations to come as a digital download, DVD copy, or USB thumb drive. Our professional service can convert 16mm film in less than 30 days in three simple steps:
We price our 16mm film to digital services by the length of film itself, which ensures you never pay extra for unprocessed portions of your film reels. Our pricing to digitize 16mm film starts at $29.99 for the first 100 feet. Then, we can digitize each additional foot for $0.20.
This affordable price includes our 24/7 tracking, 60-day backup, and satisfaction guarantee, but we also run special offers occasionally! If the actual length of your film reels is longer than what you originally paid for, our friendly customer service team will contact you via email to confirm what to digitize.
