    What is the best way to transfer 8mm film to DV.

    I already made some tests:

    I tried the BOX, with a very poor result (Grainy and poor light)

    I use a film projector Heurtier (4 blades).
    I project to screen and then pick up the iamge with my DV. I have to adjust
    the slow shutter on the DV camera to avoid the flickering.

    It seem ok. What else can I do to get a better result.

    Thanks for your advices.

    Most people use the DV camcorder and film projector method. You just have
    to have a few experiments to get the best results.

    There was also a post earlier that gave some commercial alternatives.
