What are MP4 digital files?

If you’re streaming Netflix, watching video on a computer, the internet, an iPad or your smart phone, you’re looking at an MP4 video file. The big advantage of MP4 video is that you can edit your video. It’s easy too. Don't forget to add an MP4 digital file with your film order to future proof your memories.

How To Determine Film Reel Sizes

50-foot Reel

A 50-foot reel will fit in the palm of your hand.
Running time: about 3 minutes.

200-foot Reel

A 200-foot reel is about the size of a CD or DVD.
Running time: about 13 minutes.

400-foot Reel

Remember 45-rpm records? A 400-foot reel is about the same size.
Running time: about 26 minutes.

Your boxes may be labeled, "Double 8, 25 feet." Old 8mm movie cameras used a 25-foot roll of 16mm film. When this film was processed in Kodak's lab, it was slit down the center, becoming two 25-foot film strips, 8 millimeters wide. These strips were then spliced together. The result: 50 feet of film.

Old movie reels often have a footage scale. If your reel isn't full, the scale can help to estimate how much film is on the reel.

FAQ

Will you send my reels back to me after they have been converted?

YES! Everything you send us to be archived will be returned to you, along with the digital copies we made for you. If you send us 3-inch, 50 foot reels, they will be spliced together onto larger 400 foot reels.

Will I be charged for blank or damaged footage?

We only charge for the footage that we are able to convert. Our technicians will clean your film and remove any large blank sections or portions too damaged to transfer.

Can my reels be transferred in the order I indicate?

Yes, simply number your reels in the order you would like them transferred, and our technicians will splice your reels together in that order. Please note that in order for us to keep your reels in order, we cannot splice Regular 8 and Super 8 reels together. Your Regular 8 and Super 8 reels will have to be separated.
 
Will my film be color corrected?
 
Yes, a technician monitors your film and adjusts for color and exposure as needed.
 
How much film can fit onto a DVD?
 
To achieve the highest quality transfer, we can fit about 2,000 feet of film onto a single DVD. This translates to about 2 hours of footage. If you have more than 2,000 feet of film, they will be transferred to multiple discs.
