As easy as transferring Super 8 film to DVD seems, it is not. There are many factors that make it difficult to achieve a good quality transfer from Super 8 film to digital video. First, there is the resolution of the film. Super 8 film has between 800 to 1000 lines of resolution. So, your Super 8 film must be scanned at 1080 lines at a minimum to get 100% of the Super 8 film resolution. Second, the device or sensor being used will also determine the overall quality of the Super 8 film transfer. The better the sensor, the better the scan quality. Third, the ability to restore either original film recording issues or issues from degradation over the decades will also contribute to the overall quality you get from your transfer of Super 8 film. Lastly, the format you put the Super 8 conversion on will contribute to the overall quality of the Super 8 film to video conversion.

Better Super 8 Film Tranfer Equipment Will Yield Better Quality Video

The best Super 8 film transfer machines start around $75,000 and go up to $150,000. If you want the best transfer of your Super 8 film to DVD, you need to have your film scanned by a motion picture film scanner to Datacine machine. Having your Super 8 film scanned by anything less is like duplicating a photograph by video taping the photo and taking a frame out as a picture. You will only get about 40-50% of the quality that way. That's why we discourage anyone from using a real-time or frame by frame machine to transfer their Super 8 film to digital formats like DVD. The datacine machine have the best sensors and will get the best reproduction from your film. So, this is what we suggest.

With the average age of Super 8 film being 45 years you have to consider restoration. Restoration can fix both original recording issues and degradation issues. For example, if the Super 8 film was shot under or over exposed, an experienced Super 8 film to DVD technician can improve but may not be able to fix this type of problem. Most color shifting from degradation can be fixed or improved. Color shifting is a normal aging process. Most Super 8 film will color shift blue.

Lastly, format. If you choose to get your Super 8 film conversion at 1080 or 1556 lines you should get back at least 1 1080p format. You wouldn't want to order just a DVD which is 480 lines. We offer many different formats for you Super 8 film to video transfer. We can transfer your Super 8 film to DVD, AVI files, Blu-Ray, HD-AVI, ProRes 422 and DPX.
