As the family 'archivist' I have been working on digitizing everything from old photos, negatives, slides, documents, and VHS tapes. But my family also has a large cache of 8mm and Super 8mm films from the 1950s through the 1960s (my father worked for Kodak his entire career) that have remained un-digitized. So I purchased a 'frame-by-frame' film scanner which converts 8mm and Super 8 movies into MPEG-4 (MP4) digital movie files at 1080P/ 30 fps. I have been very pleased with it although it is a bit slow (3' reel takes about 20 minutes and 7" reel takes about 60 minutes). Unit has a 2.4" LCD screen and saves the movies to a 32 GB SD card, it also can connect to a PC or laptop.

Once I get done (within the next few weeks), the unit will probably have about 50-60 hours on it but I will not have any need for it again (I doubt that any new 8mm or Super8 film will be shot in my family). I will probably be throwing it out on eBay unless someone here would like to buy it. Here is a listing for a new one

If anyone is interested, I would be willing to trade for stamps/covers.

Wow! We sent our Super 8 mm film off for digitization through Costco Photography I believe. I seems like this system yield some pretty awesome quality digital footage! I was hoping you had a link to an example you uploaded to YouTube. Thanks for sharing this here first Don!
