Super 8/8mm Film Reel Conversion to DVD or USB

Looking to convert your Super 8 or 8mm film reel to a DVD or USB? At The Digital Service, we utilize the best true-scan technology in the industry in order to provide you with 1080p, high-definition digital conversions that can be viewed on your PC, MAC and Smart TV.

Prior to the conversion process, we assess the condition of each film reel, and if required; we offer optional film cleaning and restoration that reduces any dust and blemishes present in the footage, which allows for richer, more natural colours in the final product. 

Through a meticulous and careful procedure, we scan each reel of footage, frame-by-frame to allow for optimal quality digital conversion, with no loss of any original footage. As a result, our conversion provides for a more polished product, producing a clearer image with more natural colours and detail. 

Additionally, we also eliminate any footage that is out of focus, or any other unnecessary footage. The process also includes the removal of black and fuzzy edges. Furthermore, we offer an optional post-processing procedure for the film in order to enhance the final image. This includes improving the image’s sharpness, brightness, contrast and colour, as well as reducing any shaky footage.

Fantastic service, highly recommend. The team was professional, friendly and kept in touch throughout the conversion process. The end result was very high quality even though the tapes we provided were 30+ years old.

I decided to post my tapes to their offices due to the recent social distancing situation. They put my mind at ease with regular updates about the progress of my conversions. Afterwards they offered to send my converted videos back for free due to the COVID19 outbreak. It's good to see that they are doing their part to promote social distancing. The parcel was packaged with care and I received my tapes back in excellent condition. They were fast, reliable and professional. Would definitely recommend.

Great work by the team at The Digital Service. They were professional and far exceeded my expectations. It was great to see my MiniDV tapes converted quickly and with great quality. All the unwanted blue screens and TV shows in my footage were also trimmed off, which was a nice touch. I couldn't be happier with the service I received. Thanks again!

By far the best video duplication service I found in Sydney. Friendly staff, attention to detail with great quality conversions. Got my 40+ tapes converted within 14 tapes and very impressed with the results.

"My partner and I wanted to get our 2 vhs t"o dvd done as a present for my parents 60's birthday, and we wanted to combine all the videos that highlights all the special moments. After sitting down with them and looking through the footage together and discussing what we wanted for the video, we were absolutely blown away with the result. The video and the soundtracks blended together wonderfully as well as all the nice transitional effects they've incorporated seamlessly. They've also corrected all the colors that was over saturated and increased the audio. They've reached my expectations and more and we couldn't be happier!"

I had a very 'special' anniversary tape that I recorded with my wife back in the 90's and The DIGITAL SERVICE were very discrete and respectful. Highly recommended, 10/10 A++ gold star service

I absolutely love the video editing that they've done for my graduation video! We had over 3 hours worth of raw footage from that day and many boring/unnessary parts that I don't care to remember. After briefly discussing with them with the general idea I wanted the video to be, they completely transformed it into a 10 minute video filled with so much highlights and really brought me back to that memorable day. I couldn't be happier with it! Highly recommend their service.

We had a couple of 8mm tapes that were quite damaged as the film inside is mangled and unable to play in our camcorder. The digital service was able to repair the films and retrieve the footage with great quality! Great work and would highly recommend.

What a great service! We really wanted to convert our wedding videos on VHS from 20 years ago and we were quite concerned about how it would turn out. We were given a turnaround of 7 to 14 days but received it within 3 days, delivered straight to my house. The quality of the footage is excellent and will definitely go back again with more tapes!

I would highly recommend David's team, after searching around for this type of service, I found them to be the cheapest by far and was very satisfied and surprised with how efficient they were. I got my 40 VHS tapes dropped off in less than a week. Thank you so much again! 🙂

David and his team have been amazing in dealing with all of our queries, we had a large amount of tapes that had a lot of mould in them and we were worried that the videos wouldn’t turn out well, but surprisingly they were able to get really great quality videos out of it! We went for the package that included in video editing and enhancement, and the pricing is very reasonable! Thanks again!
