The telecines are superb, and I know you have to have good subject matter. I want to talk to the person who will be doing my transfer - What equipment will you use Rank Cintel is about as good as it gets? But after removing the memory card from the camera and viewing the. This one did the exact same thing, with even worse results. I'm exploring with lighting, exposure settings and distance before I'm happy. I am supposing that these are the result of some sort of pattern based on the projection speed and the camcorder recording speed. We invite you to browse our site and see how Just8mm can serve you! Thanks so much, Lou Greg Welch Prod, Just a note to tell you how pleased I am with my recent film transfer order.
Thanks for the years of wonderful info in this thread! You either mail them or let them rot in the closet. When I did mine, I had the company keep the film itself while I inspected the resulting video they sent. Thanks for you help, and as I've said, I've already learned a lot from reading all the comments, but like I said, I'm a novice, so please don't get too technical, as I'm having trouble understanding what 3 blades vs 5 blades and all that means. The chemical instability of this material, which was unrecognized at the time of its introduction, has since become a major threat for film collections. I would like to add a nice concise section about do it yourself systems to my super-8mm.
During this process, we inspect the film, add leader if necessary, and repair tears or bad splices. The Goko units are also similar to projectors, but instead of projecting the image onto a ccd cell, they project the image so that it appears to be floating in air inside the machine. Is there an easy or semi easy fix, or am I looking at needing to replace it? Hope these pages are of some interest and possible use. This is also described in the book along with the equipment and mods required. Also, are you doing it frame by frame with this method? But if you have a Digital8 camcorder or a digital camcorder with analog pass through or capture ability, you can use the camcorder to convert the analog signal on-the-fly which can be captured by a computer. I haven't looked at it recently, and I've never tried their gear. It's still a slow process, but it works.
As technology evolves, you will still have the victor over the question of time and quality: 8mm, super 8mm, and 16mm film. Even though super8 is 18 frames per second fps and video is 30 fps, I have not experienced any problems. Almost all 8mm film will shift in color over time usually to blue or red. If you want a film that looks like a digital video then you need a frame-by-frame set up, ultra expensive of course, but strokes for folks I guess? I also eventually think that the 1st method aerial transfer should be better quality than the flat screen; but is it so much more difficult? You'll need to rewind the film. I will certainly order from you again and, in addition, be an out-spoken advocate for your company to my relatives, friends, and colleagues.
But captured video is out of focus. This statement brought to you by the year 1965. My plan would be to use my family movies for my learning curve, and then move ahead with doing others.

You might even find out that some of your old 8mm film has sound that you never knew about. The info is in cyberspace, so you can look up how to do it, but only between 12 am - 12 pm, every day of the week, every week of the year, every year until your demise.
If you are going to send out your film, you want it done right the first time. I was a little hesitant to order this because of software reviews, but I took a chance anyway. Does anyone know the ins and outs of transferring Super8 to Digibeta? I was able to get them to my siblings in time for Christmas, and we are all enjoying that stroll down memory lane. Sales tax added for Texas customers. Obviously the more sophisticated equipment you use the better can be the result. Sure, have a go, but ruin your film in the process with a crappy old projector like I did, spend a small fortune and immense time and dire frustration with unsatisfactory results.
I have not used it but am looking into getting one as a possibility. However, with the development of technology, most video formats now are digital and there are no more adapters anymore. Thank you in advance, John B. The video material looks surprisingly good. As far as converting what I have done thus far, the default exposure settings have been optimal. I currently have a good demand for my ProShow Producer Slideshows, and could see adding this as an additional service.
. Our film capture process uses filament-less lighting, meaning that it runs cool and is in no danger of burning through your celluloid. It is also the same on footage taken outside. But for home movie capture there are softwares which can minimise flicker at the expense of some contrast. Just to be clear to what I've found in the market: Condenser lens type: Flat screen type: I also couldn't clarify which is better to the hot spot problem. Thank you Hi Brent, I am not familiar with sound movies either, but what I gather from your input, the sound track got dubbed with music over the top of sound.

The link to view your clips is private to you but you can share it with your friends and family if you like. They have the shutter speed adjusted. This is understandable because the Tc-20s were based on a cheap revolving prism just like a low end consumer film viewer. Is there a camcorder option that allows for the speed to be adjusted? I figure any quality might be okay as long as the fluttering it gone. If some of your film is so deteriorated that we cannot get any identifiable images, we will not include them in the transfer, however we must charge the same fee for the inspection time.
Remember that all orders come with a total of 3 sets of dvd's. Definitely use a good solid tripod. Do your research on companies, don't just take there word for it on websites, spend a few bucks on a sample transfer, compare the results of what you are getting, with that, you will get a feel for not only quality of transfer, but quality of customer service, turn around time etc, then work a deal, if you have quantity, ask for discounts, free copies etc. Hi guys, just thought I'd post an update on my progress making frame-by frame digital transfers of 8mm movies using a flatbed scanner and home computer. I expected more pixel noise with the lower res due to the 2X magnification but did not see that much with bright scenes.
