Hey guys, I need to find a place to transfer some old 8mm to DVD or MOV. I know this is a professional Forum and these are just old home movies but I figure someone here would know a decent company to do the transfers rather than me just taking a random company off the web.

Thanks in advance!

You could try us at Cinelab ( www.cinelab.com ) or in LA I would think Spectra would treat you well ( www.spectrafilmandvideo.com ) there are also the regular suspects like Pro-8 and Flying spot in Seattle. We all have real telecine equipment and 10-bit recording.

Thanks Rob!

I sent it off to Spectra this afternoon based on your suggestion and also since I'm working in LA the next few weeks, otherwise I'd have sent it back East to you.

Thanks again for the suggestion; their customer service on the phone was excellent and they were very helpful.

All the best!
