KODAK vs. Legacybox

By Dillon Wallace

Congrats! You’ve made a wise decision in your pursuit to preserve your old movies and pictures by bringing them into the digital age. Digitizing your old, beloved media is the best way to future-proof, share and enjoy your precious memories while simultaneously decluttering your attic or basement. 

 

But with so many different digitization companies out there to choose from, how do you know which one is best for your budget? Privacy? Quality?

 

Well, to help narrow the playing field, we’re going to help walk you through the different offerings between two of the premier digitizing services available: KODAK and Legacybox. After all, you can’t trust just anyone with the safekeeping of your most valued nostalgia, right?

 

Let’s get to know the contenders

Legacybox is headquartered in Chattanooga, Tennessee where the idea of southern hospitality is truly incorporated into each and every digitization order. They aim to make the process as easy and convenient for you and that starts by sending you a box to drop in your photos and videos, to begin the digitization process. After a short time away, you’ll get your old media back along with DVDs and an optional thumb drive loaded with your new digital memories.


As a trusted brand that helped shape the film industry’s humble beginnings, KODAK needs no introduction. As a photography pioneer, KODAK is responsible for creating the first mail-in service model for developing analog media. Which makes them a terrific candidate for digitization. They provide mail-in professional digital conversion services for film, photography, video and audio tapes and more. Simply load up the pre-paid box with your various analog media and send them in for digitization.

So who wins?

The answer is KODAK, but just by a hair. While both companies are great for your digitization needs, the deciding factor comes to the fact that KODAK offers a slightly cheaper mail-in box starter kit, not to mention the iconic innovation the company has provided the film industry for more than a decade. Both companies have professional technicians to care for your memories, keep them private and in good condition – not to mention, return them to you quickly and safely to share with friends and family. But in the end, KODAK gets the edge.

 

So, if you’ve got some memories you’re looking to digitize, choose KODAK and enjoy reliving those little league games, dance recitals and family vacations with your loved ones for years to come.
