Cell phone video to DVD and rotation

Most smartphones including Android and iPhone can shoot High Definition video but are lacking in easy ways to display these videos on today's TV's. We can transfer your smartphone videos to DVD and also rotate any movies shot vertically so they are easy to watch on your TV or computer monitor. Prices start at $24.95

Authoring a DVD Slideshow

Walk in to any King Photo store and turn up to 40 of your favorite family photos in to a real DVD Presentation for weddings, Graduation parties, reunions or as a tribute for a funeral. Choose a sound track from dozens of popular titles

Still photos can be treated two ways on a DVD disk. They can simply be scanned if needed and saved to the disk as individual digital files in jpeg format. For more information on scanning of prints see: Scanning & Transfers.

Regular 8mm Film

  • Standard 8mm with sound is very rare.

  • 8mm and Super 8mm are the same width but Super 8 uses smaller sprocket holes and a larger image area. This means the same size projected image will need less magnification and appear sharper and less grainy.

  • Super-8 films are 18 frames per second-and movement looks SLIGHTLY smoother.

  • Standard 8 films are 16 frames per second.

  • Many Kodak 8mm cameras from the early 1970's were 8mm sound.

On the left is the common 50 foot reel of Regular 8mm film. The Pinkie Test: The hole in the center of a reel of Regular 8 is smaller than the hole in the center of a Super 8 reel. A finger won't fit in the center hole of a Regular 8 reel but will usually fit in a Super 8 reel.

The film lengths can often be determined by the visual indicators on each film reel -- see image. 8mm 3 inch reels used in the 60's and 70's were not usually marked but they are 50 feet and run for approximately 3 minutes.

How to recognize if film is silent or has sound

Only films that have magnetic band(s) have the capability of having sound recorded onto them.

Simply having a magnetic band on a film does not mean the film definitively has sound. It could still be silent if no sound was ever recorded onto it.
