Many of us have precious memories captured on old film. With the world moving to digital, you should consider moving all of your old films to a digital format for easy access and preservation.
You can bring your precious memories and important images into the 21st century with affordable film to digital transfer from Film Transfer Company. You may think your old films are safe tucked away in the attic or basement. However, film doesn’t last forever, even when properly stored. In fact, old film may eventually deteriorate to the point where once in a lifetime moments are gone forever. An affordable way to avoid losing priceless treasures is to transfer your film to DVD, BluRay or digital video files.
Top-Quality Film Transfer Equipment
The average age of film seen is around 50-55 years old. In some cases, you may even be able to transfer older films from the 1930s and ’40s. The reason why time is so important with film transfer is because film shrinks with age.
Also, sprocket holes closer on newer film, which means cheaper film transfer machines can’t play or process older film. If you attempt to use such machines, you’ll damage your film. Use professional scanners that don’t rely on sprocket holes to move the film along during the transfer process. Instead, lasers scan each frame — which also dramatically improves the quality of the results!
All Types of Film Transferred!
Over the decades, different types of film served various purposes, from capturing family moments to capturing the creative works of ambitious independent movie makers. You can transfer all types of film to your preferred digital format.
Super 8 Film

A cheaper alternative to 35mm motion picture film, 16mm film has been around since the 1920s. While it’s possible to have older family movies on 16mm, it’s a format that was more commonly used by independent film makers and government agencies. Resolution: Up to 2k or 1556 lines.
