The Best Way to Convert Your 16mm Film to DVD
Almost 100 years old, the 16mm film format may have been used for low-budget, educational or industrial films, but it is steeped in history. The first 16mm film was released onto the market by Eastman Kodak in 1923 and came as part of an “outfit” consisting of camera, tripod, projector, screen and splicer. That’s a lot of kit, and it would have cost you upwards of $300 back in those days.
