When converting film to digital format,
there are additional costs involved due to the extensive post-processing required.
Editing, cropping, stabilizing, and upscaling the footage all require significant time and effort.
Furthermore, to achieve high-quality results, our machine captures a single photo of each frame,
which also adds to the overall processing time.
We have recently acquired a new machine capable of transferring Super8 MM films with sound.
For sound films (Not silent films) , there can be a one-time setup charge of $50,
followed by the same pricing structure as mentioned earlier, based on the reel size.

To give you an idea of the quality we deliver,
here's a sample of an 8mm film transfer I recently worked on.

This particular footage was shot on KODAK 8MM film in 1956 at Albert Park Street Circuit in Victoria, Australia.
It features captivating footage of a young Sir Stirling Moss.
