Super 8, 8mm & 16mm Film Transfer Pricing
Don’t settle for second best when it comes to transferring your precious films. Our ultimate frame-by-frame capture process utilizes the latest technology to capture each individual frame of your film and deliver a truly breathtaking result. Your priceless films have never looked so good!
We offer film transfers in Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) for 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm. The decision is yours and should be made based on your budget and the value you place on video quality.
Our prices for frame by frame file scanning and restoration are as follows:
Standard Definition (SD) Frame by Frame:
42c per foot, which includes film cleaning and repairs, editing of unusable footage, colour correction and output to DVD. This price applies to 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm film.
High Definition (HD) Frame by Frame:
62c per foot, which includes film cleaning and repairs, editing of unusable footage, colour correction and output to Blu-Ray (BD). This price applies to 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm.
Please note, there is a minimum charge of $50 for all standard definition film transfers / $75 for all high definition/2k film transfers.
If you need more copies of the final discs, these are available at $10 each for DVD and $30 for BD.
Files suitable for editing
With many user friendly video editing packages now available at all budget levels, custom editing your video footage is easier than ever. We can provide your unedited video footage as uncompressed .avi files (PC) or .mov files (Mac)
Our price for the creation of .avi files is $15 per 20 minutes of footage. For projects less that 60 minutes (approximately 1,000 feet), we can supply on DVD (each DVD holds 20 minutes), otherwise the footage must go to a hard drive. We can supply the HD or you can bring your own.
Output media options
- We use quality Verbatim DVD and BD media standard for our film transfers, however we offer the option to upgrade to:
- Archival grade (24kt gold reflective layer) DVD with a 100 year guarantee for an extra $5.00 per disc.
- Output of footage to miniDV tape is available for $25 per hour of footage.
Please note, our Frame by Frame capture clocks the exact length of footage, so you only pay for the actual amount of footage we transfer.
Extras for your final video
We can provide music, titles and special effects to your final DVD or BD, if you’re looking for that special touch. If you’d like to discuss some of the options we have, give us a call or email and we’ll be glad to discuss your options.
