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.
