The film wasn't the one I had expected. I accept that may be my fault, but i had explained that i wasn't sure i had the right film as i do not have the equipment to view it. I explained that it started with a ticking clock sound track. I have received some footage which i have never seen before and this is the only footage where there is a sound track? I was asked to pay extra, presumably for the mag track, but there is no soundtrack. I accept the film is 35 yrs old but what i have received is out of focus, poor quality and has no sound track. I would have thought someone could have taken the time to discuss this with me before transferring the film? So i have spent £100 on rubbish. again, partly my fault; rubbish in, rubbish out but given digital enhancing etc i think the original footage could have been improved? Again, this isn't the film i thought it was and that in itself is disappointing.
If you want to share your old memories with your family and friends go to Cine Magic. They will convert any film or video into new technology. We were very happy with the work they did on our wedding film that nobody in our family has seen until now. They did a very good job and now they will see us now in our sixties as we were when we were in our twenties. It is great!
Cine-Magic were brilliant - I highly recommend them. Not cheap, but we ended up with a high quality product that is a joy to watch again and again. We were guided through the process and kept in touch all the way, and service was efficient and very speedy. Couldn't have asked for more - highly recommended!
I would recommend Cine magic if you have some old cine films to convert to DVD, the site is so easy to follow and the joy of seeing something come alive again after probably many years stuck in a box , you can choose a title, they put appropriate background music, it was all done so quickly and so efficiently, I've had two cine films converted now and have two more to convert and i will most definitely be using Cine Magic.
I send 19off 8mm films for conversion to DVD and the draft DVD was back with me within 7 working days for me to review and title. Once done and notified to CineMagic the final DVD, AVI copes and 19 films where back with me within 7 working days.
Twelve years of 8mm cine all on easily accessible DVD with menu. So pleased we have saved the films for our children and grandchildren. Amazingly good quality, so much better than we had from a competitor 5 years ago which was almost unwatchable; we watched Cine Magic's DVD holding our breath and were delighted with the result. Speedy turn round and good price considering the number of splices that must have been required to transfer our 40 year old Super 8. Highly recommended. Thank you.
I had found some old Super 8 reels in the loft and had no idea what was on them. I sent one to Cine Magic to see the quality of the film as they were about 40 years old. I was so pleased with the results. Very emotional seeing my parents and family on holiday so many years ago, especially as some family on the film are no longer with us. I was so pleased with the result I have now sent off another 4 reels and am going to search the loft for any more I can find.
We had some very old cine films we wanted putting on to DVDs with music of the era and Cine Magic came through for us. Best think I found was there readiness to help as we need some slight changes and Cine magic were very helpful and did it. Would recommend
Thank you cine magi you work has made a wonderful gift for my daughter
I have a standard 8 film 7" reel that I took in Japan 50, yes 50, years ago! Ok the camera work is not the greatest but at least I ended up with a DVD. Bearing in mind this film has languished in lofts and garages for all these years I am pleased that there is some useable footage. Well done.
An excellent service which i would have no problems in recommending. Not only was the service provided prompt and courteous but updates were given at each stage of the process. The final product was exactly what we'd hoped it would be and the price was very reasonable indeed. Highly recommended.
the service is first class i will use them again. price very good. I have seen the results from other peoples work and they are no where near as good as this. Just a shame that there is some detritus in the gate on some of the film, but i know it is hard to get rid of it all on old film.
Having had several bad experiences dealing with companies over the phone and via e-mail who left me frustrated and disappointed, I am pleased to say that Cine Magic has restored my faith in this kind of transaction. The whole of the conversion of my standard 8 film was executed in a timely manner, I was kept informed all the way through via the tracking system and e-mail. The DVD received was presented well and has no errors omissions or breaks, the backing music is fitting. I would not hesitate to use this company again. Altogether a very pleasant experience.
