8mm Cine Film to DVD or Digital (MP4)
The 8 mm film format was initially developed by the Eastman Kodak company and was released to the public in 1932. It exists in two main versions of the original standard 8 mm film and Super 8 mm cine film. The consumer base was mostly home movie users and was a cheaper alternative to the 16 mm film. Super 8 film is a motion picture film format that was released in 1965. The Eastman Kodak company wanted it to be an improvement over the 8 mm home movie format. Also, the dimensions of the super 8 mm film are rectangular perforations along one edge that are smaller than the 8 mm film, which allowed for a greater exposed area.
