Super 8mm & Regular 8mm Transfer Costs Overview
This is a Rank telecine transfer; we do NOT use a film chain or projection system. 
For high definition transfers direct to drive, see our Bonolabs Division.

Inspect, clean & prepare for transfer, and film-to-tape transfer to a videotape master (Mini DV, Digital Betacam, DV CAM, DVC Pro, or Beta SP). 

Transfer price is for 18 or 24 frames per second only. Other frame rates will be charged telecine suite time. See direct-to-drive transfer if interested in the "tapeless option."

Rate and stock changes requiring an additional setup on the telecine will be charged an additional $15 per change.

We can transfer audio from Super 8 rolls with magnetic sound for $35 per 400 foot roll.

Film will be returned in new film & reel sets (required). We do not return film to client reels.

$.08 per foot for prep, leadering, compilation and cleaning. 

$35 lab labor for splice replacement & repair as needed

$2.00 slug if you require leadering between each individual roll or to designate a switch between different film stocks.

Transfer cost: $4.10 per minute of runtime.
$85 transfer minimum (under approximately 400 feet of film)

Plus cost of master tape stock and any optional duplication.

Cost of film cans, reels, shipping and handling
