Super 8 Conversion Specialist

Would you like a highly personal experience with a specialist handling your films? Consider choosing us!

What makes us different:

  1. Our "small-print" for starters. It is simply shocking to see how many competitors conceal malicious intent in their "small print." They hide the fact that it is they who will retain the copyright of your converted personal footage. This way they can sell it, later, on any platform. They can also keep it  - indefinitely. We do not do that. You will retain the copyright of your film and treasured family memories, and we return to you everything that you send to us!
  2. We are a small company - a two person husband-and-wife team who cares and knows your material is irreplaceable and beyond priceless.
  3. I, Nathaniel (the Swiss/American husband part of our team), approach my work with passion and hold a degree in motion picture and photography, from Brooks Institute of Photography.
  4. We keep up with technology. It's a necessity in order to stay in business and it keeps us on the cutting edge. (Our communication is more old-fashioned. Imagine this: We use email, a landline phone, and don't text.)
  5. We have years of experience and thousands of happy customers - at our FilmFix in Switzerland, as well!
  6. Last but not least - we've been told over and over again that our prices are very fair. (In fact, former customers have said that considering what we offer, and the level of service we provide, we should raise our prices.)

Most often, I am asked to deliver your film conversion on a convenient USB stick!

This versatile, high quality 3.1 USB stick swivels! It offers both Type-A and Type-C ports and works on most devices.

You're one step away from finding out what it costs for us to help you with your special conversion project. The detailed options are helpful, and exciting, to most of our customers! If you'd rather have our help in figuring an estimate, please just call! (And if we don't answer right away, leave a message as we're nearby. Thank you.)

Local Film Conversion Service

While staying local is nice, sometimes it's in your best interest to branch out and find the professional experts who specialize in this type of transfer. Converting 8mm film -- the right way -- is highly technical and requires specialized, professional-level equipment in order to achieve the best outcome.

Super-8 Film Transfer with Sound

We are different: If your film has sound, it will be included in your transfer at no additional cost. Some transfer houses charge extra for sound; some charge a lot more for it!

Includes Chromatic Aberration Fix The benefit of the software we use is it fixes chromatic aberrations. This improves the flawed image outer edges, thus eliminating the common “rainbow glow” of the flawed high contrast edges -- due to using inexpensive camera lenses.

35mm Slides

Either count your individual slides or just provide a rough estimate. We'll have an exact count once all have been digitized. We base your invoice on that total count.

Please enter number of slides to digitize  

We can scan all types of slides (glass, aluminum, cardboard, and plastic) and sizes (24x24, 24x36, and custom formats).

Note: If your slides are housed in individual metal encasing or plastic sleeves, please contact us - extra fee assessed.

Now, each slide is hand-cleaned!

Commonly asked questions:

What are your business hours?
In general (and aside from the traditional "Christmas/Holiday Rush" months) our hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM (PST). We do all of our business by mail (except for some local, Ojai, CA, drop-offs.) We are available by phone: (805) 640-8883. If we don't answer, please do leave a message for us, as we use a land-line telephone and welcome your message. We do not employ a full-time receptionist so look forward to knowing you called. Thank you very kindly!
What is the best way to ship my film to you?

We have enjoyed a 100% track record of perfectly delivered packages using the Postal Service -- with the exception of 3 reels sent in a padded envelope, which was not properly sealed by the customer. And yet, we received the envelope! Sadly, it contained no film.

We send all our domestic shipments via the U.S. Postal Service using their "Priority Mail - with a Signature Confirmation". If you prefer, and let us know, and we can use a "Delivery Confirmation" instead. ('Delivery Confirmation' does NOT require a person to sign for the package.)

Both methods provide you with a tracking number with which you will be able to track your shipment.

UPS, FedEx and other carriers also work. However, we only send back your goods via the U.S. Postal Service. (Note our Policy: We return your order -- both transfer and originals -- in one shipment.)

What is the turnaround time on your orders?

It’s easy to find out. From this page, you are 1 or 2 clicks away from seeing your "Estimated Completion Date." As soon as you finish your free online Estimate, it shows you the ESTIMATED completion date. Sometimes we beat that date, but if we find we might go past that date, we will contact you.

NOTE: Our turn-around time varies based on how much work we already have "in-house" at the time your order is placed. (1 - 6 weeks is our usual)

What if I am wrong in calculating my Estimate?

We base our invoice on the total minutes of your transferred footage. For slides or images, it is based on the actual number of images. Therefore, it is only after the transfer is completed that we will know the total cost of your order. We then notify you via email, and that's when you pay for your order.

If you have under-estimated your total footage (or slides), your invoice will be a bit more, and if you have over-estimated, then the cost will be a bit less.

More information about our order process

Do you perform all the work yourselves? Do you outsource any of it?

We perform all of your work here in Ojai, CA. However, we do not have a store-front office. We do all our business by mail. On occasion we prearrange a convenient meeting time to retrieve goods, in downtown Ojai. Let us know if you need us to consider this option for you.

All the technical aspects of your transfer are handled by Nathaniel Courtens - a professionally trained filmmaker and photographer and graduate of "Brooks Institute of Photography" (1996), Santa Barbara, California. Laura Courtens handles the communication, tracking, packaging, and logistics of each order.

IMPORTANT: We are only able to transfer content which is original to you, or that you own or have a license to use, or that falls within the fair use exception under copyright law, and where the transfer of such content does not violate the rights of others or applicable copyright law. Accordingly, we are not allowed by law to transfer copyrighted commercial content (such as movies and television shows) that does not meet such criteria. When you place your order, you will be required to certify that the content provided to us meets at least one of these criteria and that the transfer of the content does not violate the rights of others or applicable copyright law.
