I could not be more pleased with the quality of my 8mm transfer you put onto DVD. I gave this to my mother for her birthday and she was ecstatic.
Thank you for the lovely work you did.
I received my DVD's that you digitized for me today. You did a fantastic
job, and thank you very much.
Your service was great and the dvd 's are what I expected and hoped for.
Dear Larsen Digital,
We have our DVD and feel that the job was very well done and more quickly than we imagined!
Super8 Movie Film
Super 8 movie film was introduced in 1965 as a higher quality alternative to 8mm film. Some Super8 film came with a magnetic sound track, about 5-8% of super8 film sold & recorded has sound.
Although Super8 movie film is very similar to 8mm film, it has slightly larger frames due to the smaller sprocket holes.
8mm Movie Film
8mm Movie Film was introduced in 1932 as a less expensive option to 16mm movie film. 8mm Film is 4.8 mm x 3.5 mm.
8mm film can come on what is called a "double roll" which was 16mm film with sprockets on both sides. Once you were done filming on one side of the 8mm film, you took it out & flipped it over & recorded on the other side. When the 8mm film was being processed it would be split down the middle, doubling the footage, hence 8mm "double footage".
16mm Movie Film
16mm movie film was introduced in 1923 as an alternative to 35mm film. 16mm films became popular with armature videos. In 1935, 16mm film started offering sound, it was offered in either optical or magnetic sound.

Digital Color Correction
Only $0.07 Per Foot!
It is inevitable that as your movie film ages, the color ages as well. The fading of the dyes in your movie film is caused by a chemical change in the light exposure and temperature. While color fading can begin just years after your movie film has been developed, when you transfer your movie film with Larsen Digital Services you can choose to have your film color corrected by our professional technicians. There is no better way to watch your past movie film memories than the way they were intended, with the color restored to what it should be.
Some movie film was shot as silent film, and some movie film was shot with sound. Normally companies charge extra to capture the sound along with the picture, but we think that's a bit stingy! If your film has an audio sound track, we will capture that sound at no extra charge.
We can capture the sound on Super8 movie film with a magnetic soundtrack and 16mm movie film with an optical soundtrack. If you are unsure what you have, feel free to call us, and we can help you determine what type of movie film you have 1-800-776-8357.
If your movie film has an audio soundtrack and you want that included on your movie film transfer, just indicate on your order form that your film has sound.
Splicing Film with Sound
Industry standard is to splice smaller reels onto larger ones to make to transferring movie film to digital more efficient. When we transfer movie film with sound it takes significantly more time to set up each reel to ensure that all of the audio is captured. Due to this, if you need to make a special request that we do not splice your smaller reels onto a larger reel, there will be a $5 per reel fee. To learn more about why this is necessary, click here.
Offering 100% Capturing - Frame by Frame
