How many reels of Film will fit onto a DVD?
8mm and Super8 film generally runs about 900 feet per hour, but tends to drift a bit because all cameras seem to have recorded at a slightly different speeds. Below are a couple of rules of thumb to go by. Remember, we don’t squeeze your video onto a single DVD. We transfer up to 60 minutes of video/film to a single DVD to maintain the highest quality of visual and audio output. Use our friendly online order form to specify how many one hour transfers you need per tape. Two of our DVD discs will hold the following film lengths: 36 – 50 foot reels 9 – 200 foot reels 6 – 300 foot reels 4 – 400 foot reels Or a combination of such. Generally we find that these figures are a little low in the real world and sometimes it is possible to put as much as 2000 feet onto a 2 hour DVD disc.
