John G from NY wrote: I had about
12000 feet of 8mm family home movies,
40-65 years old, languishing for decades
in metal film cans. When I decided to
spend big bucks to get them digitized, I
sent sample reels to 3 vendors and
checked their results and cost
estimates. I chose Digital Express for
the quality, fair pricing, and a sense
that owner, Jim, was actually going to
care about those irreplaceable films.
My decision was the right one, although
I had second, third, and fourth thoughts
as I handed the package of 50 reels to
the post office for shipment to Florida.
Jim digitized the entire batch
flawlessly and stored the 160 GB of
resulting .avi files on a portable hard
drive I sent him. The playback quality
is at least as good as I remember it
sitting in a darkened room while the
movies were projected on a beaded home
movie screen decades ago. Jim pre-cleans
the film and color corrects the output
for optimal results. This is the place
to trust with your valued memories.
Since Jim charges only for the actual
footage he scans, and skips blank leader
frames, the final price came out lower
than the initial estimate -- a sure sign
of an ethical vendor.
NOTE -- there are different methods for
digitizing movies. The simplest method
is basically to project them on a screen
and shoot a video of that display. Those
results are far inferior to the better
technique of scanning EACH AND EVERY
movie frame and assembling the results
into a video file. Digitizing all those
reels wasn't cheap, but I'm glad I took
the financial leap. It's the closest
I'll ever get to having a time machine.
Now I'm busy sharing the files with
members of my excited family.

We try to buy "local", but being so far

appreciated the care you took at each
