16mm Film Scanning

WE TRANSFER YOUR 16MM FILMS TO DVD, BLU-RAY OR USB

16mm to DVD, Blu-ray, or USB transfer
We can capture 16mm film and digitally transfer it to DVD, Blu-ray, or USB. Show your children and grandchildren what you and the world looked like 50 years ago!

We clean all old film reels before converting – free of charge! Cleaning will remove dust, dirt, and mould that may have built up and will result in a cleaner and brighter image when transferred. We perform all cleaning carefully by hand using FilmGuard – at over £50.00 per litre, this specialist cleaning fluid will not only remove dirt, mould, and deposits left on the film, but it will also protect and lubricate it. All films are scanned, frame-by-frame, in 3K resolution, then colour corrected scene by scene completely flicker free.

We can deliver the 16mm film as DVDs, Blu-rays (1080p), MP4 files, or even ProRes 422 for editors.

The quality of our work is evident and we’ve even performed archival work, restoring old cine films for local authorities.

Your films are SCANNED, frame by frame, using a sprocket-less system, in 3K resolution. Colour correction is performed live, and then we tweak the final results in post-production.

16mm film history

16mm film is a popular gauge of film. It is generally used for non-theatrical film-making, or for low-budget motion pictures. It also existed as a popular amateur or home movie-making format for several decades, alongside 8mm film and later Super 8 film.
