Why Transfer 8mm & 16mm Film to Digital?
Your 8mm film, 16mm and super 8 film will most likely be more than 40 years old. 8mm & 16mm film will start to deteriorate after around 25 years depending on how it has been stored. It only makes sense to preserve your memories now before they fade away all together. Digitaleye Video transfer will preserve your memories forever using the latest in digital scanning technologies into a format that you can watch on your TV or edit with your computer so future generations can enjoy.

How do I know how much footage I have?
You can get a good idea of how many "feet" of film you have by identifying the reel sizes using the chart below. Sometimes the reels are not full. If you look carefully on the side of the reel you will see a numbered scale showing the the feet. We only charge for the number of feet - NOT the size of the reel.
