Calculating Film Feet: Film transfer is priced by the film foot. The table below calculates the amount of film feet. Enter the number of each size film reel in your collection, in the table below, to figure out how much total film footage you have. Each order is a custom job, and final quantity of film feet can be
impacted by removing damaged or blank film, or by the estimation of film
feet being incorrect. We only charge for the actual number of film
Scanning Process: All film conversion processes include film inspection, cleaning, and
repair. We repair old splices, remove blank film and damaged
perforations, and replace the leader if necessary. Prior to scanning
your film, we carefully clean it with a special solution to remove dust, mold, and other contaminants from the film stock .
We use high definition film scanners (models Sniper HDL, Sniper HD-Pro, and Sniper-16 HD) to digitally scan and record the entire contents of each frame of your 8mm, Super 8mm and 16mm film. The captured film content is then reformatted / converted, and returned to you on a video DVD.
Educational Video Library: Videos on our film transfer process, sample finished product, color correction, and comparsion to previous generation film transfer.
Turnaround: Average turnaround is 2 weeks from receipt of your order into our lab back to your doorstep.
Pricing: The price for standard definition film transfer to DVD is $0.17/ft. (17 cents per film foot) or $8.50 per 50ft (3 inch) film reel.
Film with Sound: We can capture audio from sound strips on
Super 8mm film and 16mm film. Price is $25 per 1,000 film feet. Our editors adjust and synchronize audio playback for best play. Worth
the extra investment - adds significant value to final product.

From Bridge61 of Germantown, Maryland on 12/11/2014.
I was very hesitant to send my treasured family movies away and did a lot of research on prices and the video process before I chose Cintrex AV. I am completely satifisfied with the end result. The time frame was excellent, the product is fabulous and the people are completely trustworthy. I'm so grateful for their excellent work and professional staff.
