The Best Way to Convert Your 8mm Film to DVD
One of the first home movie formats ever used was 8mm film. First introduced on the commercial market in 1965, 8mm consisted of 200–400-foot reels of 8mm film strip accompanied by an 8-inch flex disc. Together, these components would produce the video (the reel) and the soundtrack (the flex disc) for many home movie masterpieces created across America.
There were typically two flavors of 8mm film available to home users — the standard 8mm film, also known as Double 8mm, and Super 8 film. Super 8 had perforations that were spaced wider apart, and this resulted in a larger image area.
Restoring Home Movies To Enjoy For Generations
If you own a number of 8mm films, you may have lost the ability to view and share these magical memories with others. Broken or hard-to-find equipment is one of the most common reasons why these wonderful films go unwatched for years on end. The good news is there is now a way to convert this film to DVD or digital file so that it can be watched on today’s equipment and shared easily with friends and family.
Whether the 8mm reels contain candid footage from special events or have been carefully choreographed and edited, you can now convert these memories onto DVD or digital file, where they can be duplicated, viewed easily and preserved for years to come. Once you convert your 8mm films to DVD or digital file, you can send them to loved ones, store them easily at home and view them without tracking down and setting up projection equipment.
