    Converting 8mm movie film to digital format

    Good point but hoping perhaps a farang might have some sort of kit over here - clutching at straws now!

    Disappointed that there's nowhere here in Chiang Mai but will search Bkk as suggested

    I said in my earlier response that the films were between 300 and 400 feet. This was from my faulty memory going back over 40 years ago! From the pictures I took of the reels it looks like the biggest is about 200ft from what I can discern from one of the pics, but it may be a bit bigger than this.

    Attached pictures of the cine reels involved - illustrating the various sizes - NOT the total quantity!

    Thanks for that. I had already obtained a quote in the UK - where the films are - and that was >GBP400. I left the films in UK on the understanding a friend could bring them over as and when I found somewhere cheaper here, but that now seems a remote possibility! I looked at the Amazon link you kindly included but the m/c on offer doesn't hold any reels > 5". Mine vary from 3" (holding 50ft of film), to about 8" or 9" (holding 300ft to 400ft of film). Unfortunately I don't have any m/c to transfer the big reels on to smaller ones either! I am still hopeful someone will come up with other alternative solutions. I worry that the cine films will deteriorate as they go back between 45 to 55 years in age; apart from the fact I would dearly like to watch them again as they contain many happy family and holiday records. Also, regrettably, the cine projector I had has been disposed of by an overzealous relative when sorting out her loft space! Aaagh!!
  6. Does anyone know where I can get my 8mm Standard 8 cine films converted to digital format and loaded on to a memory stick?
