Home Movie Film Reel Sizes

Reel Sizes and Film Formats
Movie film was returned from the photo labs generally on 50 and 100 foot reels. Many were then spliced onto reels of 200, 300, and 400 feet. Some super 8 film was spliced onto 600 and 800 foot reels as well. 16mm film was spliced onto reels up to 14 inches or 2000 feet.

3 Inch Reel = 50 Feet
4 Inch Reel = 100 Feet
5 Inch Reel = 200 Feet
6 Inch Reel = 300 Feet
7 Inch Reel = 400 Feet
8 inch Reel = 600 Feet
10 inch Reel = 800 Feet
12 inch Reel = 1200 Feet
14 inch Reel = 1600 Feet
15 inch Reel = 2000 Feet
This is not exact since some film had a thinner base, and 400 feet would fit on a 6 inch reel.

Carli:

WOW! I received my four Digital8 tapes of 3500 feet of film transfer job. The focus is great and color is just fantastic even on those old 8mm films from the 1940s. This was my third job-set you have done for me and the work has really been nice. I previously tried submitting samples for film transfer to two different local Professional companies here in Cincinnati who have been in the business for twenty years and the results were disappointing, i.e., poor focus and clarity, uneven lighting of frames, washed out color, and significantly more jitter in the motion. I will be submitting another set of work sometime soon. What is it that sets your process apart? Also, I'm curious, was the Super 8 format inferior to regular 8.....it just seems like regular 8 mm has fewer bouts of jitter and better color saturation. From the last set of video transfers I was able to produce two hour-long DVDs of memories from the 50s-70s adding background tracks of my families' favorite tunes from those time periods. We watched these at a recent family reunion. It really was special, and I want to thanks you guys again for your creative work.

Thanks....
