Transfer Film To DVD  8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm


Whether it’s old family film, VHS, 8mm or Mini DV video tapes, technology is leaving those precious family memories in the dust. Mike Crivello’s Camera and Imaging Center can solve most of your technology related video problems by converting those outdated formats to DVD’s.


Our in-house technicians will transfer that old film (8mm, super 8 and 16mm) to DVD’s that you can play at home. 8mm, Hi8mm and Mini DV tape can also be converted to DVD.


We can also take your old film, prints or slides and digitize the images for your use at home or work. Save those precious film memories to CD, DVD or even hard drives.

Imaging has been our business since 1969, only the formats have changed. You can bring all of your imaging service needs to Mike Crivello’s for prompt, expert service. The following is a partial list of services. Contact the store for particular requests.

With this service we transfer movie film to DVD using  specially designed equipment.  We only transfer sound from Super 8mm film. There is no sound on 8 or 16mm. Closed cassette type movies cannot be transferred without breaking the cassette.  


Looped movies cannot be transferred.  This is a "transfer only" service. We do not edit or enhance the images. We transfer all images, including blurred or poor contrast  images. Aprroximately 1600 ft. of 8mm or Super 8mm film will fit on a 2 hour DVD. 3100' 16mm. For best results, clearly mark each reel with numbers that will not fall off, in the order they are to be recorded. This is a "play-only DVD.
