Our Regular 8 and Super 8 film transfers are completed using brand new state of the art frame by frame film scanning technology. Every single frame of your film is captured separately and then a flicker free colour enhanced movie is created.

PhotoQ will look after your 8mm film like it’s our own. Our technicians will carefully clean your reels and check them for damage before we start the transfer and resplice any bad joins where necessary. Our high definition frame by frame scanner is belt driven so even damaged sprocket holes are no problem.

Our technicians monitor your film as it transfers and adjust for colour, density and sharpness. We can even offer High Definition 1080p files saved to your hard drive or we can provide a hard drive for you.

Dont have your films transferred using the old telecine method, in the last 2 years film scanning technology has significantly improved and as a result you can expect much better results.

We have a per reel fee and have no extra hidden charges, other transfer business have set up fees and then a per foot fee and extra for sound! We will clean and resplice your film as required with no additional charges.

If your film is literally falling apart then we may quote you to rectify this but this is quite rare.



8mm film was created by Kodak in 1932. It was designed to be a home movie format that was less expensive than 16mm, which at the time cost over $300 to get into, which was a lot back then considering $500 got you a new car. If you're a baby boomer you will most likely have home movies of some sort on 8mm, maybe your wedding? and GenXers there is probably footage of you in your nappies on 8mm somewhere.

You probably haven't seen them for some time, but don’t dig out that old projector! If you don’t remember or don’t know how to set the machine up you will probably damage your film. Plus is can be difficult to get spare parts for these machines now.

Why not get them put onto Blu-ray Disk, DVD disc, hard drive or files and share them with friends and family? Popcorn not included.
