8mm film reel transfers and conversions

Reasons to convert home movie reels into DVD:


  •  Obsolete format: 8mm reel formats as well as VHS formats are no longer used for multiple reasons.  Whenever you have an obsolete format, it makes it all the more difficult to view your home movies on reel or VHS tapes;
    • In the case of 8mm reel footage it is difficult to set up the projector, errors can occur while playing them back that could ruin your reel film if the person doesn't know how to properly handle the projector.  
    • In the case of VHS tapes; it's harder to find VCR players, and you always risk a tape getting "eaten" by the machine. Another disadvantage is that you're not easily able to get a copy to your friends and family to watch since fewer people have VCRs today.
  • Film reels are difficult to duplicate, copy, and/or replicate
  • Reels don't allow for the unique features of DVD and Blu-Ray such as DVD menu creation, DVD subtitle additions, audio additions, personalized DVD labels, DVD cases, etc.
  • Super 8 movie reels and VHS tapes deteriorate over time.
  • Film reel transfer with Vintage VHS is relatively cheap and offers guaranteed lowest prices.
  • DVD and Blu-ray formats are easily converted to digital files (.avi .mp4, or mpeg) which make it easy for you to store or upload on YouTube, and share with friends online.
  • Timeless format:  DVDs and Blu-rays are virtually timeless assuming they don't get scratched.  The format doesn't deteriorate over time if the DVD remains in take and are relatively resistent to dust.
