How do you count film reels?

  • Updated

That's a great question!

Each individual reel is counted as one item. If you have smaller films spliced together on a larger reel, it will still only count as one item. We do not count film format by the length of the film, but by each reel you send in.

We are able to convert any size of film reel, up to 10.5". We digitize most consumer format film created including 8mm, Super 8, and 16mm.

Since most film reels are generally short in length, your films will be combined onto as few DVDs as possible in barcode order. However, you can arrange them on our Digital Access or Thumb Drive option! 

We are currently not able to process Regular 9.5mm or Super 9.5mm films. We are not able to digitize the sound line.
