It does a great job of scanning my 8mm project. only problem I had was transferring to a windows computer-kept giving an error code. I installed Linux on the computer and it worked great.

Joanna K. December 26, 2020 Illinois, United States

I think it should be more clearly stated that an SD Card is essential. I also thought we could simply watch videos before saving them. With all the films we have, we're not sure if we want to save every film. The scanner was our way of viewing 60 year old movies.

Brien M December 18, 2020 Ontario, Canada

This is a straightforward machine that does what it says it does in a very uncomplicated way. It has a very solid build and I have done over a dozen reels with no problems.

After reading a few reviews of this and similar products I'm glad I went with this Magnasonic Super8/8mm scanner. I'm not just pleased with the product itself but the customer care was excellent, quite thorough.
Truth told, the first version of the product performed inconsistently. After phone chat and live testing with Dawn I tried a few other methods to determine if my use of the device were the problem. After further email correspondence with Julie it was advised that I return the product, with free shipping, to a site where it was evaluated. I don't know exactly what was wrong but they tended to it with a new machine that functions perfectly.
I suppose noting that the product faulted may not glow in everyone's eyes, but the fact that the company fessed up - sometimes things go wrong AND they acted quickly to fix it - goes the farthest in satisfaction, to me.
Kudos to Julie and Dawn, and the team that evaluated and returned a new device.

Priya N December 10, 2020 Alabama, United States

So far so good! Exceptionally fast delivery to Australia. I have about 40 x 3 inch super 8 reels to transfer and have only completed 5. I had to redo a few rolls because I messed up the frame adjustment settings, but that's my mistake. So far I am really happy with the F81 film scanner. It's amazing to see old movies from my family that would not have seen the light of day otherwise. I have also been cleaning each reel using a minette viewer editor and film cleaner. I think it helps. The main reason I decided to go through this extra step was to minimise dirt build up on the scanner. Can't wait to get through my batch of films.

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.

K C September 30, 2020

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.

ProPAZ September 26, 2020

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!

DENIS H September 25, 2020

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.
