Details about our Super8 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. This is also better for the long-term storage of your Super8mm film, as more of the film lays flat, vs. being wound tightly around smaller reels

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.

More information about the Super8mm Film Format

What is Super 8mm film?

Super 8mm film, also known as "Super8" was created in 1965 by the Eastman Kodak company. The “super” designation indicated that it was an improvement over Kodak’s older “regular 8mm” (also called “double” or "regular8") film.

The improvement in Super8 film stemmed from the fact that while the two films (“regular 8mm” and “Super 8mm”) were approximately the same width (8mm) and had perforations on only one side of the film, the perforations on Super 8mm film were smaller which enabled the exposed area to be wider and larger.

While many companies offered Super 8mm film and systems – including Kodak, FujiFilm and Polaroid – the most popular film and system was the Kodak system.

The Kodak Super 8mm system

Kodak’s Super 8 film was encased in plastic light-proof cartridges which contained, in the beginning, 50 feet of film after the film was developed. The length of viewing time, depended on the speed with which the film was shot. If the film was shot at 24 frames per second – the standard professional motion picture speed -- this resulted in viewing time of approximately two and a half minutes. If the film was shot at the slower amateur speed of 16 frames per second, this resulted in a viewing time of approximately three minutes and 20 seconds.

Over time, Kodak introduced a cartridge with 200 feet of film which quadrupled the length of viewing time for professionals and amateurs.

The convenience of Super 8mm film

One of the most popular features of Super 8 film was its fast loading time. Because the film itself did not need to be touched or threaded into the camera, amateurs and professionals alike could load the Super 8mm film cartridge into the camera in about two seconds. A second beneficial feature was the camera could automatically recognize the speed of the Super 8mm film rather than the operator needing to spend the time to adjust camera settings accordingly.

Super8 film sound

The soundtrack of Super8 film was found on the edge of the film opposite the side with the perforations. Sound was recorded 18 frames in advance of the corresponding picture.

Is Super8 film still used today?

While most amateurs have migrated to digital video cameras, many professionals continue to use the Super 8mm format in order to achieve certain visual affects, including imitating the look of old home movies or giving the movie a deliberately grainy look.
