Converting 8mm to DVD sounds simple but it’s not if you want it done right the first time. We get calls all the time from customers that tried their local camera shop or Walmart and they either never got the film back, it wasn’t done right or the quality is terrible. That won’t happen with Video Conversion Experts. Converting 8mm film to DVD is our specialty. We not only do it for amateurs but also for other film labs around the country that don’t have high-end 8mm equipment. We are 1 of only 2 labs that can scan 8mm film at 1556 lines of resolution. So, if you want the best, look no further.
Converting 8mm to DVD is becoming more important as time passes. 8mm is a great format but it doesn’t last forever. In fact, it can last about 50-75 years. VHS only lasts about 25 years. Film has near 1000 lines of resolution. VHS only has 240. Yes, I’ve heard it before. Why or why did we move from 8mm film to VHS. VHS was easy to use and cheap compared to film. That’s why the industry went in that direction. The average consumer didn’t know how much quality they were giving up.
Because most film is 50-60 years old, converting the 8mm to DVD should be at the top of your list. Once the film gets too fragile or warped it can’t be scanned and you’ve lost those memories forever. So, I always say, better safe than sorry. Convert your 8mm to DVD and you’ll sleep better at night.
Once you’ve decided to convert your 8mm to DVD you’ll need to choose a company, process, and format. Of course, you’ll want to choose Video Conversion Experts, right? Actually, do your homework, ask questions and make the best decision for your family.
As Steve P put it in his BBB review, “My dad traveled around the world in 1938 when he was nine. His dad had just bought one of the new-fangled 8mm cameras. For nearly 75 years 1,800 feet of film sat in three cans of 600 feet each forgotten in the basement. Video quality is incredible. So we trusted VCE, and two families are thrilled with the result. Thanks.”
