The first home movies were recorded on 16mm film back in 1923 and for decades families have captured precious memories on reels like this. These film reels are difficult (even dangerous) to view on an old projector and they’re getting more delicate every year, so we encourage our clients to get their reels digitized as soon as possible. We want you to watch them instead of worry about them.
We digitize all major formats of home movie film using a gentle, frame-by-frame digitization process using the best professional equipment.
