STANDARD 8MM, SINGLE 8MM, & SUPER 8MM CINE FILMS

WE TRANSFER YOUR 8MM FILMS TO DVD, BLU-RAY OR USB

Cine to DVD, Blu-ray, or USB transfer
We can capture standard 8mm, single 8mm, and super 8mm cine 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 cine 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.

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.

We can deliver the 8mm 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.

Prices start at just £14.95 per reel and reduce depending on the quantity you have. Scroll down for full price details, and to generate an instant quotation.

8mm cine film reels

8mm film history

A 50-ft (3-inch) reel at the usual filming speed of 16 frames per second equates to about four minutes of footage. In the early 1960s, a new filming and projection standard of 18 frames per second was introduced, although many cameras and projectors included a multi-speed facility.

The standard 8mm format was quickly displaced, for the most part, by the Super 8mm film format – a 50% larger frame size – from the mid-1960s onwards.

Film manufactures (which you’ll often find on old boxes of film) include; Kodak (Kodachrome, Kodachrome II, Ektachrome 100D, 50 D, 200T, and 500T, and Tri-X), Agfa (Agfachrome), Fujifilm (Fujichrome & 25 ASA Fujichrome R25N), and Polaroid (Polavision).
