16mm is the oldest format of film we transfer, dating back to the 1920s.
8mm (Regular 8)
The original consumer film format introduced in the 30s (widely adopted in the 40s).
A variant of 8mm with smaller sprockets to allow a larger film frame (60s and later).
They did a perfect job of over 20 rolls of 16mm from the 50's. The quality of the work is excellent....none of the colors look faded and the framing perfect.
Smaller Reels and Splicing
Most films started as 3-inch reels (50 feet), which were sometimes spliced together onto larger 5, 6 and 7-inch reels (200, 300, and 400 feet, respectively). An order with more than a few small reels will be spliced together during the cleaning and repair process. You will receive the original, now empty, 3-inch reels back along with a larger reel containing the film.
