Incredible Technology: The Proof Is In The Pudding
FilmTransfer offers many useful features, each one with its own meaningful purpose. We listen to our customers and integrate their technology requests on a regular basis. FilmTransfer is not only developed by us, but inspired by our customers.
High-resolution sprocket-less scanning
FilmTransfer scanning is 100% sprocket-less, with each and every foot of film scanned without reliance on damaged or warped sprocket holes. And high resolution scanning extracts every bit of detail available from 8mm, super 8, 16mm, and 35mm film.
Advanced Color Correction
We include an extremely advanced color correction process allowing customers to see their films the way they were before decades of fading. This technology is one-of-a-kind and very powerful and best of all is included with every film scan!
FilmTransfer’s full-frame captures makes it easy to see the entire film, even parts that were typically hidden during projection! Enjoy peace of mind knowing no picture-area is lost, and crop how you see fit!
Dust and Dirt Removal
FilmTransfer offers dust and dirt removal for those films that have seen a projection or two in the day. It’s like going back in time and watching the film for the first time, debris free!
Our stabilization option applied to your films is a pleasure to watch! Enjoy the benefits of SmoothCam-like stability on shaky hand-held home movie footage.
FilmTransfer is no stranger to grainy films. With an application of our grain reduction option, you will be amazed at the clear benefits of a smooth, HD-like picture from original 8mm, super 8, 16mm, or 35mm film.

“First Rate, Excellent Service”
“I have been using your service for several years and have transferred many 8mm films that my dad took in the 40′s 50′s and 60′s. These are many precious memories that I am now able to share with family and friends thanks to your first-rate, excellent service. Nothing can replace these videos and I am very grateful that I have a company that I can trust with them.”

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the film transfer you completed for us. The turn around time was exactly as you had promised and the quality was excellent. The DVD brought tears to my mother-in-law’s eyes! My in-laws had used another company a few years ago for transferring some of their films and the quality of your work far exceeded what they had done. It was an easy, no-hassle process. We’ll plan to use your company for any future film transfer projects we may need. Thanks again.

I received my film back and one DVD. I am very pleased with your lab’s efforts and the outcome. Thanks for the good work. As soon as my wallet cooperates, I will be looking to your organization for future needs on my part.
Carol D, Rock Hill, SC
What a joy it was to watch these old movies and reopen my memory banks! Thank you Eugene and crew for the service you provide to folks. Excellent service I might add! My children, siblings and their children will treasure these for ever. Thank you!

Today I was able to sit down and look at the DVDs (from vintage films) just dropped off at the museum Saturday, and I’m ecstatic on many levels. The 1958 “Education for Responsibility” is a film I may have mentioned that we already had, but in poor quality. I spent some frustrated time last fall trying to make it usable as something for our museum patrons, to no avail.
The cleaned-up, brightened, fully restored version you just gave us is magnificent…I’m hard-pressed to find a vintage film we have that’s brighter, sharper, and just all around “better.” We were all thrilled, watching it, and we’ve been showing it to everyone we can. A thousand thanks.
“Fit for the Future” (1938) is one we’ve had in a copy I once thought looked pretty good — until I just watched the (again) cleaned-up, sharpened, wonderful job the company just did. And best of all, nearly a full minute of “lost” audio we’ve wished we had for years, is there, in full, crisp clarity. It was just a thrill to watch it as it was meant to be seen and heard!

I just wanted to let you know that I received my 70 or so 8mm reels on Thursday along with the hard drive filled with the Apple ProRes 422 HQ files and I am so thrilled with the results! I have uploaded a movie to YouTube made of several clips that I thought might be of interest to my relatives (in the films). This is in High Def, so I think it looks simply smashing!
I anticipate that I will be sending other films to you in the near future.
