How Can You Convert Your Old Movies to DVD Form?
Technology is constantly moving at the speed of light, and in most cases the things you used to not be able to do, you can do now. Things are always moving, always getting better and always becoming a higher rate of quality. Fortunately for us, there are people or businesses to be more specific that know how to transfer your old movies to DVDs. Your movies can range anywhere from 8mm, 16mm, super 8mm, VHS and video tapes, and what’s better is this won’t cost you an arm and a leg! I have seen a few sites online that offered this service and the prices are as low as 10 cents per foot for the 8mm to DVD transfer! The differentials between old film reels and DVD is quite amazing.
First off you have the quality. We all know by now that DVD, Bluray, and HD give you an incredible vision of quality when it comes to the “graphics”, whereas films? Not so much. You know you have all those cosmetic imperfections such as blotches and spots. Some people might like that “old school” look, but for me I want all my films to be updated and be as high quality as possible!
Secondly this is a really easy process, especially if you deal with a company that has been doing this for a while. Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying new business are going to screw your film up, I’m just saying DO your research! Go online and look for reviews, see what people say about various sites, various prices, customer service, ease of the process, etc.
And lastly this process is incredibly practical. Ya know that giant box you have sitting in your garage with all those dusty old film reels that you never know what to do with? Well now instead of having a giant box with tons of reels, you can have a couple really nice compact DVDs! Now you can actually throw that box out!
I have personally tried services such as these, and I know of a few people in my family that have had it done, and really its worth the few bucks it costs to transfer over. I can’t even begin to explain how much happier I am with these DVDs than I was with those old film reels! This is just one of those things you have to try to believe it! Take it from me, you really won’t be disappointed!
