8mm & Super 8 Film Transfer Service
Amateur home movie-making became more accessible and popular with the introduction of the 16mm film format by the Eastman Kodak Company in 1923. The company would go on to introduce the 8mm film format nearly a decade later as a more affordable method for amateur movie-making. Eastman Kodak continued to work on better ways for amateurs and families to record memories and launched the Super 8mm format in 1965. Super 8 film was an even cheaper and more simplified recording format than the previous 16mm and 8mm film formats. By 1975, Super 8 film was being produced with a magnetic strip that allowed audio to be recorded along with the images. For over five decades, millions of American households depended on their 16mm, 8mm, and Super 8mm film formats to capture the most precious of family moments until VHS revolutionized the home movie-making industry. As a resident of South Florida, your film is especially at risk of damage and decay because of the heat and moisture in the air. Unless great care is taken to properly store your film reels, your memories are at risk of being lost forever. SFL Media Transfer is family owned and operated and has over 10 years of experience in the preservation of film footage.
SFL Media Transfer’s team is highly skilled in transferring 16mm film to DVD, 8mm film to DVD, and Super 8 film to DVD. SFL Media transfer uses high-quality equipment to capture your film footage frame-by-frame while other video transfer companies project your footage onto a white wall and capture it on a video camera themselves. Your footage will be saved in the digital file format of your choice (.AVI, .MOV, .MPEG4) and returned to you on DVD, USB, external hard drive, SD card, and/or online ‘Cloud’ storage. All our prices always include film cleaning and basic editing of the final footage. At SFL Media Transfer, we take pride in handling your memories and sensitive footage with the utmost care and discretion, so we will never outsource your order to another company. Since your privacy is so important to us, we only store a digital copy of your footage for 14 days after you pay for your order, just in case you decide you need extra copies for family and friends. Transferring your 16mm film, 8mm film, and Super 8mm film to DVD or another output format of your choice (USB, external hard drive, SD card, online ‘Cloud’ storage) will preserve your cherished memories for years to come, regardless of how hot South Florida becomes!
For more than five decades, millions of American households recorded their most precious and private moments on 16mm, 8mm, and Super 8 film and unfortunately, many of these memories will soon be permanently erased due to heat and moisture damage. To ensure that your memories remain intact for generations to come, bring your 16mm film, 8mm film and Super 8mm film to SFL Media Transfer to get it transferred to DVD, USB, SD card, external hard drive, and/or online ‘cloud’ storage. Wouldn’t it be great to view that footage of your parents, grandparents, or your childhood on today’s devices?
