How to Transfer Super 8 to a Computer


Super 8mm is a film format used on older film movie cameras. The format provides a slightly higher resolution than standard 8mm yet not as large as 16mm. If you have reels of old super 8mm film canisters sitting around your home and want to import the content onto your computer, it is possible to transfer the film into a digital format by using a local film transfer company. Stores such as Walgreens and Rite Aid (and other local drug stores) offer film transfers to CD that are far cheaper than purchasing your own film projector and video camera.
