Transfer Super 8/8mm Film to Digital


We had another great turnout for the "Transfer Your Memories To Digital" class at our last Maker Monday. In previous blog posts, we described the different formats you could transfer to digital formats here- vinyl records, audiocassettes, VHS tapes, slides, and photographs (or anything else that can be scanned on our copiers to a USB drive).
New since last time is the addition of a Super 8/8mm film converter. Read on to see how it works!

The easiest way to save your footage is bringing in your own SD card (no bigger than 32 GB- you can also use this on our slide converter). If you don't have an SD card, you can borrow one here for in-library use, then transfer your footage to your own USB drive or cloud storage. Just call the Reference Desk at 440-250-5460 to schedule up a time to use the converter (it will take a few hours, as the machine scans every frame of the film individually).
See how it works here!
