8mm Film Transfer

Today, there are about 4 different types of 8mm film to DVD film transfer machines. At the low-end we have the real-time 8mm film transfer process. It uses a 8mm film projector and a camcorder. As the film plays, the images are bounced off a mirror and recorded by the camcorder. As you can imagine, this is not the best way to capture all the details from your film.

Just above that we have a frame by frame 8mm film transfer process. In this type of process, the same projector and camcorder are used but the camcorder is pointed right at the film in the projector. As a new frame enters the gate, a sync signal is sent to the camcorder and computer to take a picture of the frame. In this type of 8mm film transfer process, the results are about 20-30% better than a real-time process.

The best 8mm film transfer process uses a professional 8mm film scanner or datacine machine. There are older professional scanners like Rank Cintel but these scanners use technology from the 1980s and can only scan at standard definition resolution. There are a handful of new high definition professional 8mm film scanners as well as brand new 2K (1556) 8mm and Super 8 film scanners. These scanners typically cost over $100,000 each. These professional high definition and 2K film scanners provide the best possible 8mm film transfer quality available.

So, the best 8mm film transfer company will be using a professional 1080 or 2K (1556) 8mm film scanner for your 8mm film transfer. As David Wayne Hanby puts it on his BBB review, "their work with film gets them an A+ rating in my experience."
