Do I have Super 8 Sound or Super 8 Silent Film?

While most Super 8 film is silent, sound recording was added to a small number of Super8 film cameras before video cameras were introduced into the market.  In addition, some 8mm Film Projectors at the time had the capability of adding a soundtrack after the film had been developed.  If your Super 8 film has sound, it will show up as a thin brown magnetic strip (similar to that of an audio tape cassette) on the side of the film opposite of the sprockets.

 

How can I tell if I have Super 8mm film?

Super 8 film has larger images than Regular 8mm film, and as a result had to have the sprocket size reduced in comparison to make room for the larger images.  Super 8mm film will usually have 6 smaller sprockets per inch, while your Regular 8mm film will have about 7 larger sprockets per inch.  It will be easy to tell the difference if you have a variety of film taken over a period of time.  Unlike many other film to dvd conversion companies, Our Super 8 to DVD transfer costs are the same as our Regular 8mm to DVD transfer costs, regardless of whether your Super 8 film is silent or has sound.

 

Why do I have so many 3-inch Super 8 Film Reels?

Given the size of 8mm and Super 8 film cameras, there wasn't much room to fit a lot of film into the camera.  As a result, film was sold and developed in 50-foot increments, or about 3 to 4 minutes of footage depending on the film type.  If you or your parents never took the time to splice these smaller film reels together onto a 5-inch reel or 7-inch reel, your film will still be on the original 3-inch reel.

 

How do your Transfer Super 8 to DVD?

Regardless of whether you have Silent Super 8 film or Super 8 Sound film, all of our Super 8 film transfers go through our same all-digital film transfer process.
