Rent/Borrow 8mm Projector? - March 8, 2010, 09:27 AM

Does anyone know where you can rent an 8mm projector?

I have a friend who found his father's box of old family 8mm films and wants to get them transferred to digital.

Thing is, it's about $100 per roll and he wants to know what's on each first before sending them in for processing.

I might have one but i'm not sure it works. It also might be a 16mm. I'll look tonight to see if all the parts are there.

I'm in the same boat. I have a projector, but it doesn't work and I have a bunch of Super-8 that I shot back in the '90s.

$100/roll? That's a fucking rip off. Each roll is only 3 minutes of screen time. Recommend to your friend that he get his transfers made not to DVD, but to a hard drive or a mini-dv tape. DVD compression throws away too much info, are not good as an archival media and can't be easily edited. I'd have the footage transferred into some type of high-def format like HDV, AVCHD or DVCPRO-HD onto a hard drive. Then I'd copy the contents onto another HDD and store it in a fireproof safe. Then you have to manage the data over the years, updating, transferring and such so that you'll have access to the data down the road.

I have digital pics from '02 that I can't access the files to because I didn't manage the data. Beware.

A buddy of mine recently got a whole lot of family home movies transferred. I'll ask him who did it and how and report back.
