Film transfer to digital is carried out on a film scanner that copies every frame of your movie in High Definition to achieve the highest quality. Our scanning method records all the data in every frame of the film. An average order has 1000 captured frames per minute, which are digitally compiled and colour corrected.
Film splices will often need replacing on larger reels, poor techniques used many years ago, and cement that has become fragile needs taking care of so that they are not visible in your film and don't damage our film scanners. This is why we hand inspect and clean the entire length of your film.
Using industry-standard cleaning procedures allows us to remove any contaminant on your films, such as dust, mould or other foreign elements which have settled on your 8mm film transfer to digital. We offer a cleaning service for your film's which will clean, lubricate and condition your cine film.
The cost of film cleaning is included in the transfer price and helps preserve the film for long term storage.
The original film could be like this, years of dust, cigarette smoke, chemicals left over from the developing process, and fingerprints. From 1968, an 8mm film of American Special Forces outfit in Vietnam. The RAF engineer who filmed it recovered a British aircraft from a remote airstrip in South East Vietnam.
Our scanners can capture what the camera saw, which is often a more comprehensive image than the projector would allow you to see. We then work on your film in post-production to colour correct the film where possible and digitally clean up the image. We can also add a soundtrack to the film if needed.
We can copy your films to high-quality Samsung USB drives, stored in our unique vintage film canisters for safekeeping. These make beautiful gifts for Christmas. For families spread around the world, your films are available to download online from our servers so that you can share them with the whole family.

I sent in one of my 8mm films to be digitally converted wowww incredible work and speed by Andrew, people dont look elsewhere for this work 8mm2digital is the company you need. thankyou so much Andrew another one on it's way. Ayhan Ali
This is a terrific service. Andrew converted a badly damaged cassette tape from 1976 to two fine quality, ultra professional-looking CDs in a very short space of time. I strongly recommend 8mm2digital if you need anything of this kind doing! Lindsay Gray
In my experience Andrew goes beyond just transferring, Cleaning film etc, etc. I received a DVD that had been transferd from 60 year old 8mm film which looked as if it had been taken yesterday! The DVD disc was printed with my aircraft On the front, (No mean feat as this aircraft is over 75 years old!) The disc was complete with Squadron crest, airfield map and title. This was a complete surprise as I had just expected a plain disc with maybe a title! The research needed to do this must have been considerable and Andrew is to be congratulated. I have had similar work done on other film with other companies but the results were nowhere near as good. By the way, I have never met Andrew and am NOT related I am just so pleased with his efforts! Barrie Stubbs
