    Hi all,

    I have a couple of Super-8 reels (family stuff) that I would like to
    put onto DVD for archival purposes.

    So far, I have only managed to find (in Australia) that the options
    open to me are either a professional Rank transfer ($$$) or the
    "projecting into a box" el-cheapo transfer. Neither particularly
    suits my needs, which would be somewhere between these options.

    Does anyone know of an Australian-based (preferably Sydney) outfit
    that would suit my needs? I imagine that I am looking for someone
    that has a 'Workprinter' setup or similar. I found one mob called
    'dvd infinity' that claims to use a proprietary transfer method, but
    were low on the details (other than it was 'digitally scanned' (see if
    you can work out how they do it -
    http://www.dvdinfinity.com.au/service1_2cinefilm.htm).

    tia,

  2. Hiya

    I know a guy in Sydney who posts to the Sony Vegas forums who does
    that stuff. Seems a nice dude too. Want me to pass your email address
    and this post to him?

    Cheers

  4. If they are on the main road (Victoria Road), I saw an outfit there
    advertising 8&16mm transfers, left hand side when driving to
    Parramatta (yesterday on my way to Mediavision). So if it's them,
    they're still around (tried to remember their name, but alas, I
    forgot).

    cheers
