How can you digitize those films?

We are losing more history every day. The longer you wait to digitize that home movie of your grandparents at prom or your mom’s first car the more it degrades. I use the Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Film Reel Converter Scanner to digitize what you see here.

It is easy to set up and operate and stores the files onto an SD card so you can quickly transfer files to your PC. If you have more than 10 films to scan this is definitely going to be cheaper than paying for someone to do it for you, and you’ll have the results quickly about 30 minutes scan time per standard 8mm reel.
