8mm Film to DVD Transfer

Remember the Good Ol’ Days when watching family memories required a film projector?  For most of us, those days are long gone. But those precious memories are still there, collecting dust in your attic or basement. We want to help you see, share and enjoy those memories that your family originally captured on film. Let us digitally transfer your 8mm film to DVD, Super8mm film to DVD and 16mm film to DVD, and you’ll receive memorable Archive Video DVDs that you and your family will watch over and over again.  With MemoryHub, you can easily turn old film footage that was fading away into vibrant movies you can watch and enjoy every day.

Standard 8mm film, also known as Regular 8 mm film, Double 8 mm film or simply as Standard-8 or Regular-8, was the original film format designed for the home movie market, and provided a cheaper alternative to the 16mm film format. It was originally developed and released into the market in 1932.  It proved an immediate success, and didn’t see much change as a format until the 1960s when a new frame rate of 18 frames per second was introduced, and then again in 1965 when the Super 8 film format was introduced.

Why do I have so many 3-inch 8mm film reels?

There wasn’t much room to fit a lot of film into 8mm or Super 8mm Film cameras.  As a result, film was sold and developed in 50-foot increments, or about 3 and a half minutes of footage depending on the frame rate of your 8mm film.  If you or your parents never took the time to splice these smaller film reels together onto a 5-inch reel or 7-inch reel, your 8mm film will still be on the original 3-inch film reel received after it was developed.

How much 8mm film is on a 3-inch, 5-inch or 7-inch reel?

You may be overwhelmed when you open your box of family movies and are faced with a seemingly endless (and heavy!) collection of 3-inch reels, 5-inch reels and 7-inch film reels.  Just how many hours of film footage do you have?  A quick estimate can be given by adding all of your reels together, and then using the following calculations:

  • 3-inch 8mm film reel = 50 feet
  • 5-inch 8mm film reel = 200 feet
  • 7-inch 8mm film reel = 400 feet

Details about our 8mm to DVD Film Transfer Services

Film Preparation

Prior to digitizing your film, all of your film is cleaned and spliced to perform minor repairs and remove bad splices, dust and any additional substances that may be on your film. During this process, our film transfer technicians will consolidate your small reels of film onto larger reels to improve the transfer process and reduce your storage requirements.

Film to DVD Transfer Process

At MemoryHub, we use the latest digital film transfer process to make sure that your Home Movies come out looking great! Film is transferred directly to DVD using state-of-the-art aerial direct digital film transfer technology that captures the image directly from the emulsion of the film using a high resolution digital video camera (we do not project your film onto a screen and then record it). Your film is captured at 480 lines of resolution using our aerial direct transfer technology. During the film transfer process we apply exposure and color corrections, creating memories that are fresh and vivid.

You’ll get all of your original film returned along with your beautifully presented Archive Video DVDs.

Accepted Film Transfer Formats

There are three primary formats of film that will comprise your collection of Home Movies. You probably have a mix of the following film formats if you or your parents were shooting film over an extended period of time. Film Transfer Types
