We support all consumer film formats:

Regular 8mm

Kodak created the 8mm film as a cheaper and smaller alternative to the 16mm. Released in 1932, it began the boom in home movies and was commonly used up until the 1990s when Kodak stopped producing it.

Super 8mm

If Regular 8mm began amateur film making, then Super 8 revolutionised it.  Introduced in 1965, the cine film provided a convenient and more affordable option for consumers. Transfer your Super 8 to digital to keep your memories living on.


The 9.5mm film format was introduced by Pathé (a French film company) in 1922. It was of a higher quality compared to the 8mm film and was commonly used in cartoon films, such as Mickey Mouse and Betty Boop. Convert your 9.5mm film to DVD to relive your films today.


A common format for television and low-budget motion pictures in the 1930s. It gave amateur filmmakers a cheaper alternative to 35mm. Today, many digital cameras try to replicate the style of the 16mm format. Alternatively, you can keep the authenticity of your films by converting your 16mm reels with us.

Convert 8mm Cine Film to DVD, Memory Stick and Cloud

Do you have old 8mm cine film that you want to preserve digitally? Our transfer service digitises your cine film so that it is easy to watch and backs it up in a safe format for years to come.

It’s easy to think because cine film is the oldest video format, the quality is likely to be poor, but luckily this is not the case at all. Cine film scanning can produce fantastic results as each frame is made out of photographic film. This allows a vast amount of quality to be stored. By utilising the latest frame by frame scanning technology, we can provide high definition videos, which perfectly preserve your old home movies in digital format.
