Although i have only had the best experience in my mind possible using the Frame Discreet transfer house for my super 8 footage, and not that i ever plan to go through anyone else... i am a bit curious as to what else exists.

Has anyone experienced a service for $30 a roll, and been really excited with the results?

Thanks-

Nicholas

Thanks for the kind words nick. As per demand, we're currently investigating an HD setup for us to integrate.
The issue still arrises as to what the best, most compatible tapeless codecs are to be using....

Not that it would beat Frame Discreet, but we have a similar setup using the Workprinter series transfer machines. I've transferred films for artists and consumers alike on the West Coast. Home Movie Store, you can see a couple samples here. Our prices are from $9-$20/roll depending on the service and can transfer files directly an external hard drive for editing use.

I definitely think Justin's transfers look very well done.
