FILM

Many years ago, when people wanted to capture special moments in their lives, the only option of the day was film. While modern technology now enables everyone’s smartphone to record high-quality video at the drop of a hat, there is still something truly special about seeing your loved ones enjoy their lives in a world that no longer exists. Also the look and quality of film recordings and the eras that they captured is truly magical.

From the 1930s to 1970s, the most common reels of choice were 8mm, Super 8, and 16mm film.
 
At Transfer to Digital, we’re capable of transferring these old film formats with our $45,000 state-of-the-art film scanner. This German engineered machine has the latest in film scanning technology, capable of capturing your film in full 2k resolution (2048×1536 pixels), higher than what most other transfer services can provide.
 
 
The sprocketless design ensures that even the most delicate of film can be transferred without harming it.  It’s also capable of capturing magnetic audio recorded by some of these old film formats. The scanner’s proprietary software enables our technicians to find the best possible exposure and color balance to ensure the finest possible transfer of your precious memories.
 
 
Your film will be scanned frame-by-frame and converted to a high bit-rate MP4 video file, that you can share with family and friends for years to come.  We also offer other high quality file formats as requested and even chaptered DVDs of your film reels if desired.
 
We’re committed to providing high-quality transfers so come in an transfer your 8mm, 16mm or Super8 film with Transfer to Digital today!

WHEN DO I GET THEM BACK?

Rush transfers are available, but please contact us for more information if you need your transfer done as quickly as possible.
