Film Format Change Charge


What is a format change charge?
We must charge a fee to switch back and forth between formats. For example "regular 8, then super 8, then regular 8 again would incur a format change charge. To avoid this, keep all of your regular 8, super 8 and 16mm together in the transfer sequence. For example you can transfer a few 8mm reels, then your super 8 reels, then some16mm, even add some prints to the end without incurring this charge.
This is usually not a problem since most people shot regular 8mm film for a few years then upgraded to a super 8 camera. Prints and slides can also be added to your transfer, but a format change charge will be added if you put a few slides on the beginning of the video then add a few at the end.


Unsolicited Customer Testimonial:
Dear Ken:

Just a note to thank you and your colleagues for all of your help in transfering old family movies to digital 8 and VHS formats. The transfers and the original film arrived here well packed an intact. And the results were far better than I anticipated or expected. While the project has proved that my grandfather was no D. W. Griffith, the footage recovered and preserved contains many images of family members who are no longer with us, and there are many pleasant and interesting surprises in the content. Much of the footage is from the Great Depression, and the content choices and attitude of the cinemagrapher are a story in themselves: a reflection of that basic optimisim and affection for family that is pecularly American and refreshing to this member of the Me Generation!! Prior to my first viewing, no one had seen these images for over 50 years!! Now, I have to transfer all of this into the computer in DV format, as I have siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles and parents who are very interested in having access to the material!!

So, thanks again to each of your colleagues who handled this project with such care and attention to detail!
