I am very happy that you delivered on all your promises. We have enjoyed reliving many old memories in a much more convenient way than searching through old 8mm tapes. I have recommended you to friends and family!

We converted 80-90 year old film. It came back in absolutely great shape & provided immense enjoyment especially in view of the fact that I got to see my grandfather & grandmother in their 40s & my father at age 13!

Wonderful job converting many 8mm film reels onto a DVD, so glad to have these memories easily retrievable. This company keeps you updated every step of the way on what stage your photos are in, which was wonderful. Highly recommend them to preserve family memories.

With 19 cousins, we have rounded up a lot of old home movies. We have had so much fun viewing ourselves and our grandparents back in the 50's and 60's. And without the clumsy old projectors! So easy, just order a box, put your stuff in it and send it off.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching my old movies from when I was a child. I gave a copy to my sister for Christmas and we all enjoyed watching it on the big screen. Our kids got a kick out of it too! thank you for restoring some good old memories...

The slides I sent were my grandparents from 50 years ago and were really beginning to show their age. The dvd I got in return is fantastic. We can now continue to enjoy these memories. Thanks so much!

I packed up almost 20 reels of super8 movie film of my children and family trips from the 1970s. How wonderful it was to get it quickly and efficiently stored on dvd and on a thumb drive! I have also had my 35mm slides digitized; this is a fantastic service. I will use it again.

Very quick and easy way to digitize 35mm slides. Drop the slides in their box, drop it off at the post office, and wait a short time for the box to return. While you wait for the box to return, they sends you updates on their progress.

Very easy to use, excellent customer service, and top notch quality. My parent's slides went through a fire a few years ago so I was unsure what could be salvaged, but they did a great job and kept me updated on the progress of my order along the way. My family loves the pictures from the 70s and 80s that we now have in digital format. I will definitely be using again for my pictures in the future.

This service is amazing. I submitted over 500 OLD photos--some were even old negatives (taken in the 1930s or earlier) and slides that I had never seen of my extended family. I received the digitized versions last week, and they are priceless. The digitized versions are crystal clear and look like they were taken yesterday, even though they are almost 100 years old. Thank you for preserving such special memories. I'll be sure to use this service again, and I will recommend it highly to friends and family alike.

What a wonderful company! I would highly recommend the company and the process to anyone looking to transfer slides, videotapes, vcr, and 8mm. The process was quick and you knew where your memories were in the process thanks to email updates/tracking.

Amazing! I was able to "rescue" all my parent's old slides. The digital format means I can now share these wonderful pictures with other family members! They kept me informed each step of the way. LOVE IT.

Wonderful service! They send you everything you need for shipping and provide excellent details on how the process works. They also send regular email updates to let you know how your order is progressing. I sent in 50 year-old 8mm film and the quality of the CD that was returned was better than what I had expected. My film was returned in the same condition as when I sent it. They take a lot of care to make it as easy as possible to convert your memories so everyone in your family can enjoy them too. I highly recommend this service.

There was nothing better than the look on my brother's face when he saw the video from when we were kids. It was well made and the video was in pretty good shape after being moved from 8mm film. Thanks!

Wonderful! So easy, even a novice can complete the steps. I had been meaning to do something about my old, home movies, but never seemed to get around to it. I even worried that they might be too old to convert to DVD. They came back looking better than they did on the reels of film. I highly recommend. Best prices I could find.

Professional, easy, fast, reliable, and great. I had a ton of old 8mm film processed into DVDs, the quality was great and the turnaround even better. I have more films to convert and I will definitely be using

Convert Hi8 to Digital

You say goodbye, and I say hello.

                     

After VHS had solidified its seat upon the home theater throne, the new challenge was making the tapes smaller, more compact and mobile. In 1985, the Handycam (Sony’s premier camcorder) made its debut and dads everywhere rejoiced in a lighter, less bulky video camera to tote around to ball games, school recitals and every other family-oriented event deemed worthy of recording (aka ALL of them).

This technological upgrade of the time paved way for digital audio, which in combination with its sleek size and convenient portability made Hi8 the new go-to in family video entertainment. The name itself was an explanation of what it offered consumers, the “8” a reference to 8mm video tape and the “hi” standing for high quality. The tapes were about the size of a stack of playing cards at half an inch thick, 2.5 inches wide and just under 4 inches tall. They were so compact that they were almost too small, which is why most people who had Hi8s undoubtedly lost them in the shuffle of various moves, spring cleanings and more.

But for those that still have a bundle of these cute little tapes laying around the house, it’s important to note that they won’t hold your memories forever. The magnetic Hi8 tapes of the 80s and 90s are deteriorating and their film is fading from improper storage, but more than that, simply old age. They’re dying.

As one of the founding fathers of film, we’ve seen several iterations come and go over our illustrious 100 plus years in the industry. And while Hi8 was the new kid on the video block back in the late 80s, it’s shelf life was never meant to last forever. But it can, and we can help.

Our Hi8 digitizing transfer service will convert every memorable moment packed onto that little tape into the digital realm via DVD, thumb drive or the cloud. Thousands of tapes just like yours are safely sent to our studio and transferred on a daily basis. We make the whole copy process as easy as possible by sending you a crush-proof, pre-paid shipping box. You simply load up your tapes, send them in and kick back as our team of qualified film professionals immortalize your memories onto digital formats. We’ll even notify you throughout the process so you know exactly what’s going on with your tapes, every step of the way. When we’re done converting, we’ll send back your original tapes in tow with your newly digitized formats so you can relive your first little league home run over and over … and over again.
