  • All 8mm vintage films are developed by hand

NOTE: Vintage films may have become unpredictable over the years.
For this reason, we cannot guarantee that the developed film will produce results that match the features of modern film. Possible changes include the change of colors and contrasts or even the complete disappearance of information.

Onelight scan: provides an average exposure and color adjustments for each 15 meters (50ft) of film, giving a good overview of the dynamics of film tones.

Bestlight scan: each shot has it’s exposure and color balance adjusted, providing flexibility in post production.

Scan resolutions, output formats and the file sizes per 15m (50ft):

  • 1.5K Onelight (1456 x 1080 pixels) – MP4 (0.25GB) or ProRes 422 Proxy (0.61GB)
  • 2.6K Onelight (2656 x 1978 pixels) – ProRes 422 Proxy (1.6GB) or ProRes 422HQ (8GB)
  • 2.6K Bestlight (2656 x 1978 pixels) – ProRes 422HQ (8GB) or ProRes 4444 (12.6GB)
  • 4K Bestlight (4016 x 2998 pixels) – ProRes 422HQ (17.25GB) or ProRes 4444 (26.4GB)

Output format: Usually MP4 is a good choice when sharing video on the web (e.g. Youtube).
ProRes 422 Proxy is easier to handle in various editing programs.
We recommend the ProRes 422HQ or ProRes 4444 output formats for advanced digital color correction.


Camera frame rate (fps): Setting that the film has been shot with. The most common frame rates are listed, but if the frame rate varies or is unknown, please select “Other / Don’t Know”.


Scan area: Please note that the scanning resolution remains the same.
There are different options for the film area to be scanned. Select one of the following three. If you are not sure which one, we recommend the “Overscan” option.

  • “Cropped”  scan area is slightly smaller than the exposed frame, leaving no extra around the edges such as Overscan and Super Overscan would do.
  • “Overscan”  scan area is slightly larger than the exposed frame. For example, digital image stabilization can be performed on this material.
  • “Super Overscan” area to be scanned is considerably larger than the exposed frame. Scan area may include parts of the previous and next frames and film edges.
