Film to Digital Service

Decades before video became the go-to format for capturing special family events, people shot home movies with 16mm, 8mm, and Super 8 film formats. It wasn’t easy to thread 16mm film into the camera by hand, but the introduction of Super 8 made things much easier. You could pop the film cartridge into a smaller, more portable camera, which likely explains the home moviemaking rage of the '60s and '70s. Of course, when video cameras were introduced, the use of older film formats declined. 

Perhaps you remember watching home movies or videos with your entire family gathered around. These memorable occasions were captured with one of the film or video formats that were popular prior to the advent of smartphones. If you recently found these films and thought about converting them, you’ve come to the right place. With our Decade film transfer box, you can mix and match any of these items to digitize: 

  • 10 Videos: VHS, VHS-C, BetaMax, Hi8, MiniDV, and Digital 8
  • 10 Movie reels: 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, and 35mm 
  • 10 bundles of 30 photographs (for a total of 300 photos, slides or 35mm negatives)

Film to Digital Transfer Box

Films hold personal memories with sentimental value, but time isn’t kind to them. Dust, dirt, scratches, tears, mold, fungus, color fading, shrinkage, and acetate decay can make films unwatchable. Videos can lose their magnetic charge, get scratched, or become tangled balls of tape. The easiest and most affordable way to preserve fragile formats is to digitize them.

At Heartland Box, we make it super convenient to preserve magical moments in just three easy steps: 

  • Fill your Decade box and send it back to us
  • We convert obsolete media into digital files
  • After, you receive the originals and digitized versions 

Next, gather your friends, family, and popcorn and relive meaningful highlights from past decades!
