What Is Super 8 Film?
Created by Eastman Kodak in 1965, Super 8mm film was meant to be an improvement over 8mm film, which was first available in the mid-1930s. It's the same width as regular 8mm, but the frame is a bit wider. While Super 8 cameras are no longer produced, this type of film is still sometimes used in the film community. A relatively inexpensive type of film, Super 8 was also widely used to make do-it-yourself home movies that were later viewed on family projectors.
How Do You Scan and Transfer Super 8 Film?
We start by inspecting your film and cleaning it. Our professional team then uses a high-quality film transfer process that does not involve running your Super 8 film through modified projectors or frame machines. Instead, we use professional film transfer equipment to scan your film. It's this part of the process that plays a big role in the quality you get with the results of the transfer to DVD.
Even if you previously had old Super 8s converted to VHS, you'll definitely notice much better clarity with a conversion to DVD. If clarity with video is your main concern, we can scan your Super 8 film up to 4k lines of resolution. You won't get this level of resolution anywhere else!
Why Have Your Super 8s Transferred to DVD?
The main reason to have Super 8 films transferred to DVD is because of improvements with video and audio clarity. Of course, there are many other compelling reasons to trust Film Transfer Company to convert your older Super 8 films to DVD.
Saving Priceless Memories
Any type of film won't last forever. Sure, it's possible to properly store Super 8s in a cool, dry space to minimize damage, but film will still continue to wear down, deteriorate, and loose clarity and quality over time. While DVDs aren't indestructible either, it's much easier to copy and preserve content when it's in digital form.
Easy Access to Cherished Memories
Super 8 projectors aren't all that commonplace anymore in today's digital world. So, if you don't already have this type of projector, it can be difficult to find and maintain one. Devices that play DVDs, on the other hand, are much more accessible and easier to set up when viewing is desired.
There's also the possibility of sharing the precious memories and moments from your Super 8s with friends and family members. DVDs are also small enough to be inserted in cards, stockings, and other places where they can serve as much-appreciated gifts and keepsakes.
In addition to DVD, we can also convert Super 8 film to other digital formats, including BluRay and digital video files for editing.
