Your family, 8mm films, are inspected and cleaned thoroughly before your r8mm film is transferred to digital. Old joints and splices checked and replaced where needed. All films are hand cleaned then scanned frame by frame to digital. Our 8mm Film to digital conversion is carried out on a film scanner that copies every frame of your film in 1080 High Definition to achieve the highest quality. Reels are calculated to the nearest reel sizes.

8mm film transfer to digital is carried out on a film scanner that copies every frame of your 8mm movie in 1080 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.
While working on a film today, I realised that many of my clients receive their films back and enjoy them, but don't realise the difference between the original film they sent in to be copied and the one they watch. Exposure settings on a vintage 8mm camera needed to be set for each shot with an exposure meter to get the best result. Here, we have adjusted the exposure in the bottom image, adjusting the highlights and mid-tones.
Once your 8mm film transfer to digital has been scanned, it may still contain multiple scratches and dust particles embedded in the film surface. Film stock can also appear grainy due to exposure settings on the camera, as seen on the left of this split-screen example. Using specialist software, we can reduce those imperfections while preserving details to enhance your film, as seen on the right-hand side.
We can send you a link to our online download service to receive your files quickly and share the link with other family members worldwide.
Do you have any films or tapes tucked away in the loft or wardrobe that are filled with special family memories?
They would be perfect to watch this Christmas.
