Image colors not stable and appears over compressed giving a very grainy result. Not acceptable. Has to go to USA for return

Successfully scanned all of my family's 1960's 8mm films in two days with the Magnasonic Super 8/8mm Film Scanner. Had thought we had lost that family history my Father had captured, but now it is preserved digitally for my nieces who never got to meet him.

Yes it works, but you have to work it.Complaints-Most of my complaints have to do with the physical handling of the film. The design encourages jitter. It tends to get stuck on splices and worn sprocket holes, so you have to babysit.-The user manual is minimal. For example, it describes how to adjust Sharpness, but how does that affect grain, bitrate and compression? The support website doesn't add much either.Tips-Scan in reverse to work around worn sprocket holes.-Scan into a tall box/bucket rather than the take-up reel, as the take-up reel tension contributes to jitter.-Scan from a box (rather than a reel) for larger/heavier reels which have more drag and contribute to jitter.-Wind film by hand to save time.

It works great. Very easy to use. Picture quality is great. I converted all my 8mm and super 8 movies to DVD. It takes some time to convert them, but it is worth it.

We tranfered all our 8mm tapes on to a scan disk and then we will also put it on a cd to give to family.

I am converting over 200+ old 8mm movies that my father took from 1960-1975. I was worried about this product because of some of the reviews on Amazon, but am over 100+ movies into digitizing, and have had virtually no problems. once or twice the film skipped the sprockets, but in nearly endless footage to date, that is a very acceptable rate. (and to be honest, some of it was probably user error on my part (failing to dust the sprocket every few reels, and assuring film is under the 2 white tabs). The output to digital is as good as the original, and for 50+ year old film, is absolutely amazing. Don't send your film out to a vendor if you have a lot to do, just buy one of these, you'll be pleasantly surprised. They do take a long time to digitize, so just be forewarned.

If cost is a factor this is a good compromise to more expensive professional scanning methods and will yield an acceptable digital reproduction. Cleanup can be accomplished with inexpensive software run on the digital result.

I have completed about 75 8mm and Super 8 film conversions to digital with this film scanner and without any scanner problems. The only little issue was the light would pick up a lot of dust and dirt from the film so it needs to be cleaned frequently. Other than that, every film to digital conversion turned out better than expected.especially since most of the processed film was 60+ years old and stored in less than ideal conditions. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting to convert old 8mm and Super 8 film to digital.

We purchase the wolverine before this one. It was harder to get the film loaded, but mostly we returned it because we could not get it to reliably record a whole reel before it would repeatedly jam up.The Magnasonic by comparison is easier to load, but more importantly it can make it thru multiple 7" reels w/o jamming up. We did have to fiddle with the way that the film feeds thru the device before we got it working reliably. And the clutch on the take up reel is VERY sensitive. It does not take much before it stops taking the slack.... you better be there if that happens as the film will become a pile on the floor. It seems from all of the reviews, all of these technologies are quite touchy.Still in our case there was no comparison The Mangnasonic worked, and the Wolverine did not.
