I'm very pleased with the Magnasonic machine. I tried a Wolverine first and could not get the Super 8 film to work. This one works good.

Jacqueline C October 14, 2020 Kansas, United States

I had previously purchased a Wolverine 8 mm film scanner and could not get it to convert Super 8 film at all. Regular 8 mm film worked fine, but Super 8 refused to feed thru the machine. I sent it back and purchased this Magnasonic device. It works beautifully (for both regular and Super 8 film) and I'm super pleased. So easy to use.

We tried using this machine twice the small reel and a big one. The small one processed it out half way through the picture was bouncing. For the big reel there was not enough tension so the empty reel could not hold all the tape. We had to help put tension on the reel the whole hours. We were able to transfer it came out jumpy. We don’t know if it was defective but we ended up returning it as defective and going to try a different kind.

I was initially skeptical about purchasing this product. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy and effectively I was able to scan 8mm film and produce digital copies. In just a few weeks, I scanned sixty-six home movies from the 1950s and 1960s. I highly recommend this product!

Easy to use

Christina G September 24, 2020

Very easy to use, and creates a great digital copy on to a SD card.

Vanessasgram September 23, 2020

This machine has taken 30 & 40 yr old 8mm and Super 8 mm film and converted it to something that is incredible! There is a way to stop the jumpy frames, and contrast (software not sure if it came with it or extra my Hubby uses it) but I know we sit and watch my parents (long gone) and our adult children when they were little and it seems like yesterday once more! HOW WONDERFUL!!!IT is a slow process because the' projector' has to analyze each frame one by one but the results are worth the time and you don't have to be there for all the time it takes to convert. WONDERFUL product and I would recommend it!

Decameron September 21, 2020

Worked like a charm. Chewed through 33 -3' reels in a few weekends. Upside - It takes some time, but is mostly done unattended. Definitely cheaper then sending it out to a service even at my exorbitant costing rate. Two downsides - 1) Now what? I think I will donate it to my local library. 2) It was definitely used/refurbished - either that or they always start their file numbering at 14.

Easy to setup, easy to use, produced very good results. Better than I was expecting.................

Blake September 16, 2020

I shopped around for several months trying to decide what scanner to get and finally decided on this one. Very impressed with it so far. I've done probably 2 dozen 3' reels and several 7' reels so far of both 8mm and super8 film and it has performed great. Some of these harken back to as early as 1958! Only hiccups I've had are when there is a poorly done splice or the reel is brittle and has broken where the little holes are that it uses to pull the film through. Rewinding isn't that bad imo, just takes a little while on the larger reels. Well worth the money to see your grandparents acting silly when they were your age!

I started out thinking this device was pretty nice, with a sleek design and simple controls. Initially, I liked that it auto aligns on the frame, but that was the end of that. The advancing mechanism was glichy from the start. The very first Super 8 that I scanned had to be scanned in 4 segments because although it started ok, after between 10 and 40 seconds the advancing mechanism started missing the sprocket holes, so I had to stop, move it 1/4 inch and restart, several times. There was nothing wrong with the film. The second Super 8 scanned all the way through without any issues. 'YEA, I exclaimed' thinking that maybe the first tape was bad and I was on a roll now. No such luck. After scanning the second Super 8 film, I tried a 3rd, and a 4th, and a 5th Super 8. No go at all.'OK, well, what if I try to switch over to scan an 8MM. Maybe that will work.' I got through it, but it took 8 segments to get through it. Now, I thought, 'The Super 8 won't work at all, so I'll try another 8MM.' 'HAHA,' the machine laughed at me and said, 'I'm not going to work on 8MM now either.'After spending 8 hours trying to get this thing to work and only getting through three 3 minute films, and having to run the segments through a video app to combine them, it's going back.

Amazon Customer September 11, 2020

This is an excellent product. It does exactly what it is supposed to do and it is easy to use. It can't correct the grainy and sometimes scratchy output on 60 year old 8mm tapes (what I copied) and it is a slow process (necessarily) but to see the videos come to life again after 60 years is wonderful. If desired, you can use a video editing software afterwards to enhance and somewhat clean up the videos. The video editing software is not included with the product. I recommend this product.

TH September 9, 2020

I converted my old 8 mm film reels easily. The digital file is as good a quality as you could expect and largely the result of the condition of the film reel while converting. My film reels were breaking as I converted them, they are very old. I was able to scan the broken pieces and splice them into the finished file with other software.
