I can accept Cinefilm in just about any format you might have. It might be silent it might have sound, the “Scanbox 4K” can cope with everything.
The “Scanbox 4K” has no gate, three separate motors, is capstan driven, laser stability with no pins and has two tension arms so that it can cope with cinefilm in just about any state of disrepair. If parts of your cinefilm archive are shrunken or warped or has damaged sprockets I can still get the absolute best from it. See “Cleaning & Repair” for further details
The total cost of digitising your cinefilm archive will depend on how many feet of film that you have. To work that out it is easier if you know how many reels you have, what diameter they are and therefore roughly how many feet there are on each reel.
There are many different reel sizes, most of the more popular ones are listed below.
|3 inch reel - 50ft||4mins||2mins|
|4 inch reel - 100ft||8mins||4mins|
|5 inch reel - 200ft||16mins||9mins|
|7 inch reel - 400ft||32mins||16mins|
|9 inch reel - 800ft||64mins||32mins|
|12 inch reel - 1,200ft||96mins||48mins|
|13.5 inch reel - 1,600ft||128mins||64mins|
The larger reels might have graduated marks along the spine of the reel to show how much film you have on that reel.>
