Both Super 8 and 8mm films are 8 millimeters in width, but Super 8 film offers a sharper image with high-definition and audio capability, which is why it used to be a prime choice for Hollywood filmmakers. 16mm film offers double the width, which means it allows for more detail.

If you want to convert old film to digital on your own, then a film scanner machine is the best option to digitize 35mm film, Super 8 film, 8 mm film, and 16 mm film.

There are different types, but most flatbed scanner options connect to a computer and are difficult to use if you aren’t technologically inclined.

Also, they are very time-consuming because you will have to digitize the motion pictures frame-by-frame and are unlikely to produce Hollywood or professional quality.

The easiest option is to hold up the film in front of a light source and use a magnifying glass to view film reels, but that is impractical, especially if you want to share your memories with others. Another option is to use a vintage film editor to illuminate and view the film reels. However, the best option is to digitize your film for easy viewing on your DVD player, computer, hard drive, or smartphone.

The transfer price for your custom order includes a Digital Copy and MemoryCloud access, where you can view, download, order copies, and save your memories to Google Photos.

In addition, our service includes cleaning, splicing, and scratch reduction as necessary, which ensures your original copies and the memories they contain are secure and protected.

Yes! Your original media and containers will be returned with your completed order.

You will receive your completed order in about 3 weeks (includes processing and return shipping) from the time we receive your media; it will include your originals and any Digital Download, USB, or DVD you ordered.
