We are so delighted with our machine and am really looking forward to putting all of our reel to reels dating back 50 years on to DVD.
The only thing I found, as it seems to norm with conversion equipment, is the film has landed up a tad faster than it should be. I am hoping my editing program will allow me to correct this.
It is a shame Magnasonic haven't got a dust cover for my FS81 as it would save me having to put the machine back in its box when not in use.
I would also like to mention Brent from the Magnasonic Customer Experience Team... he has been terrific with his help as well as emailing his prompt replies. Thanks Brent.

I am so glad I have a Magnasonic film scanner! Our old family movies are finally available for everyone to watch whenever they want to. This device is super-easy to use. Well-worth the $$.

Super 8/8mm Film Scanner - Nice machine, impressed with ease of use and quality of video file. Looks Good. Previously I had tried using my digital camera to record video from an image projected onto a screen with just ok results. This film scanner produces a much better quality reproduction. Only thing that I'd like to see is the ability to adjust Exposure, Sharpness, and Frame adjustment during recording without having to stop and restart in a new file. But, as far as I know that is not possible with any of the machines out there. Overall a positive experience with this product. I would recommend if you are planning on converting a bunch of your old films.

Wonderful way to preserve our older movies and share them with family and friends. Easy to use and saved lots of money as compared to sending them out to a company for re-recording.

Easy to use, this little unit did everything I asked of it. Converted film for my brothers as well so everyone was happy. I'd recommend it as value for money given the ruinous prices some commercial outlets charge.

The unit is plug-n-play. It's easy to install the film, input your settings, and push the "play" button. The digital results of my films have been great so far.

It's a little difficult to align frames! Otherwise, it does an excellent job!

Easy to use and makes good quality files ready for future editing. Sets up quickly and it will run while you do other things.

Work great.

This Magnasonic product is so easy to use and I am so enjoying converting the 8mm to digital to share with the rest of my family, I never realized how fragile the old film was getting but even when it breaks it is so easy to pick up wher it left off and continue transferring. I highly recommend this product to anyone with old Brownie movies

I was trying to digitize my dad's 8mm films the old fashioned way. Set up the projector and screen and use my iPad to capture the video. Then the projector needed a belt which I couldn't find. I decided to spend the money on this machine and am so glad I did. It made the process of digitizing very easy with a couple of caveats. First, make sure you format the SD card using the machine. After I had digitized the first couple of films while using a non-formatted card and transferred to my computer the machine would no longer recognize or format the SD card. I had to buy another SD card and I started off by formatting it in the machine. Worked perfectly throughout then. Second, there were a few times the machine "bound up" while digitizing and you quickly figure out that opening the "gate" and helping the film along takes care of that problem most of the time. The main improvement the manufacturer can make is the rewind speed. It is pretty week and slow, but it does get it done. The end product is as good as the original film. I used some video editing software to try to enhance the video which did help in some cases.

Easy to use; did a great job.

Bernie T March 18, 2021 Washington, United States

Very please with the FS81. Have scanned approximately my old home movie Super 8 42 films so far. A mix of 3 & 4 inch reels and my only 7" reel. Output satisfactory; do some minor editing and cleanup using Adobe Elements.

Considering the age of movies, excellent conversion.Need to care during process as film problems and splices can cause issues.
