8mm to DVD transfer can mean several things to different people. A little more research turns up two different formats. 8mm film has been around since the 1920’s while 8mm or Hi8 video tape has been around since the late 1980’s. These two 8mm formats are very different as you might guess. 8mm film was created by Kodak for old 8mm film cameras. Sony introduced the first 8mm video tape camcorder in 1985. 8mm film can hold up to 1000 lines of resolution. 8mm tape only holds 240 lines! Yes, your old 8mm film has 4 times the resolution. Sad but true.

There are numerous companies that can transfer your 8mm to DVD regardless if your have the old reel to reel 8mm film or the 8mm video tape format. Within each of these 8mm formats, there are numerous ways to transfer the 8mm to DVD or other digital formats.

For 8mm film, there are real-time 8mm to DVD transfers, frame by frame 8mm to DVD transfers and professional 8mm to DVD film scanners. Most companies you might be familiar with (Costco, Walmart, Walgreens, etc.) do a real-time 8mm to DVD transfer. And, of course, they aren't doing it at their store either. It is sent out of state to a different company. Hopefully you'll get everything back about 6 weeks later. Have a problem and need to talk to the people that did the work? Good luck. There is no personal attention, no customer service and horrible quality which is the most important.

What if your film has sound? Again, good luck finding a company that can get it off your 8mm film. It was never produced that way and was only hand modified to have sound. No worries, Video Conversion Experts can get the sound off your 8mm film so that your 8mm to DVD transfer has sound on it.

There are a handful of companies using motion picture film scanners to convert your 8mm to DVD. Although this sounds expensive, it is no longer the case. If you have old reel to reel 8mm film, search for a company that uses a motion picture film scanner or a Datacine machine to get the best quality 8mm to DVD transfer.
