Should I transfer my film to DVD myself or farm it out?

Posted on May 12, 2009 by admin | 1 Comment

Back in the 1980′s you could transfer your film to DVD and get about the same quality using your camcorder as the camera shop down the street. Today, that isn’t the case. Even though many companies are still using the same film to DVD machine they did in the 1980′s, other companies have brought professional equipment from the movie studios to use on 8mm, Super and 16mm film.

Today, there are frame by frame machines (still use a camcorder but uses it as a still picture device which produces better quality film to DVD results). In addition, some companies are using professional film scanners. Like a flat bed scanner, these scanners scan the film instead of using a camcorder. Film scanners produce the best film to DVD transfer.

So, today, even though many film transfer companies still use the same film to DVD equipment from the 1980′s, there are companies that have advanced the art of film to DVD transfers to a new level using film scanners.
