There are many reasons to use an 8 mm digital conversion service, including:

  • Preserve Super 8 Films

    8mm film reels will wear out over time. Transferring them into digital files with cloud storage will ensure your home movies are preserved for future generations.

  • Peace of Mind

    By converting 8mm film, you can protect your memories from floods, fires, theft, or natural disasters.

  • Organize Memories

    By converting 8mm to DVD, digital download, or USB thumb drive, you can easily rename, archive, and add additional information to your old home movies.

  • Save Storage Space

    8mm film takes up much more space than DVDs, USB flash drives, or digital files that you can store on your computer, hard drive, or in the cloud using iCloud, Google Photos, or Dropbox.

  • Ensure Future Generations Can Enjoy

    As reel-to-reel projectors become more and more obsolete, it’s important to convert your 8mm film into a digital format so that future loved ones can cherish your movie reels.

  • Sharing Your Legacy

    By converting 8mm to digital, you can ensure that all your friends, family, and loved ones can enjoy your old home movies without fighting over a single physical copy.

    After digitizing your old films, you can use digital video editing software to improve the quality of old films or even create new and high-definition memories by combining old footage with new using a digital moviemaker tool.

Prices start at $29.99 for the first 100 feet and only $0.25 per foot after that.
