I recently came across some old 8mm spools of film from the mid 60's of me and my brothers when we were kiddos that my dad shot.
I've read about how they can be transferred to DVD or CD.
Anyone have any experience with this?

LOL...I already did the Google search......man, if I had a dollar for every time that was the answer...I'd be rollin' in the dough! $$$$$$
Kidding ya there Bovina...


I was more interested in a discussion from people that have already succeeded
with this from the lovely City-Data members and get their A+ input
on the experience before I decide to take the reels to the camera shop...

lol no offense... My Aunt did this with a bunch of 16mm reels from the old family and had a company "produce" a montage thing from it - it came out great and is priceless to have before those old reels go bad..

gl!

Naw...c'mon now...I don't get offended that easily, if at all.

I can't believe I found these things. Since after my parents passed
there were a few boxes I never did get to go through.
I open this one up and there they were.
My dad was HUGE on taking film footage
of us at the zoo, parks, family vacation...just about everywhere.

And my little brother...he's 41...I guess he's not so little... lol...anyway,
he'll be ecstatic that I found these.

They've been preserved in original containers that keep the light out
so we shall see....
