Any suggestions about either getting 1000's of feet or super 8 film transferred, or buying the equipment to do it myself? Your help is appreciated.

It is done commercially JM but if you have 1000's of feet it would pay you to buy your own kit.

I had mine film put on to Video years ago and now we have transferred that to DVD.   I would think it less hassle just to hand it over to the professionals and just pay the bill.

As has already been replied, genuine professional cine transfer is the highest quality method, but expensive in large quantities.

quote:"or buying the equipment to do it myself?"

The DIY method is surprisingly easy with care, and the equipment is very cheap, as long as you still have a working projector.

It can be done by simply filming the projected image, ideally via a small back projection screen gadget, or even via the normal screen with a little care and getting the angles right.

There's quite a lot of info on DIY conversion if you Google it, like this extract from a Daily Telegraph page:

"There’s also the old DIY method, which involves projecting the movie on to a screen or using a purpose-designed cine/slide transfer screen. The image is captured on a digital camcorder and uploaded to a PC for editing and burning to DVD. The quality isn’t going to be as good as telecine but with a little patience and a lot of trial and error the results can be very acceptable. If you use a normal screen make sure the camcorder is mounted as close to the centre-line of the projector as possible to avoid parallax errors. There may be flickering due to differences in the frame rate of the projector and the camcorder, though this can be minimised on projectors with variable speed control. Unless the camcorder has manual exposure controls you may need to use a lower wattage projector bulb."

Small back projection transfer gadgets work with any projector, and any gauge of film, 8mm, 9.5mm, 16mm. They are quite cheap secondhand because people usually sell them on when they've done their own transfers.

Here's one on Ebay at the moment: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Maplin-Digital-Cine-Video-Multi-Transfer-Unit-Cine-Projector-/261368589218?pt=UK_Photography_VintagePhotography_VintagePhotoAccessories&hash=item3cdac82ba2

As for capturing the projected cine to MPG (DVD) format, most people already possess high definition video cameras in their still cameras, phones, or hd web cams. A suitable HD camera for transfer can be bought for around £20 if not.

I believe Carol of Broadland Memories does her own cine transfer this way.

Thank you all for your advice. I do have one of those back projection units but I find that the exposure is not constant across the screen. More successful has been projector and screen. I don't have manual exposure control on my camera and the auto is so darned responsive it adjusts the exposure between frames so the flicker is amplified. I have had a p.m. from Carol who has recommended a company in Loddon which is near and handy for me.

Strowager, you mention a £20.00 camera, have they manual exposure over-ride?

Here's a still from my home transfer of some 16mm b&W film of Horning in 1978. It shows the hire houseboats at what is now Ferry Marina.

I didn't frame it tightly to give a nice clean edge because I prefer to not lose anything from the original.

As with any small gauge cine, the moving film is much clearer and sharper.
