There should be a link to JFK in the article. I mean Zapruder's is the most famous 8mm footage ever. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 16:52, 19 February 2007 (UTC).

8mm film into digital[edit]

How do you convert 8mm film into digital video to use on your computer to upload to a website or to make a dvd with the video? i think we should add the how to to this article as well —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pauldonald86 (talkcontribs) 06:26, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

I thought the same thing when I read the article. The term of transferring film to video is called "telecine." This ought to be included in the article along with a link the wiki on telecine


If we think in digital terms, what is the maximum physical resolution of a high-quality Super8 color or b/w negative film frame? 320x240 pixel or maybe 512x384? I guess if you scan at too large resolution, like 2048x1536 you only get "empty" zoom, but no more details revealed. I heard 35mm ISO-100 color photo negative film stock has about 300dpi max. resolution due to limits imposed by silver-iodide grain size. (talk) 18:06, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:
