    Hi. First time poster so apologies if this has been asked before.

    I have been left a lot of super 8 fine film and would like to digitise them. To get it done professionally would cost a couple of thousand pounds so I have been looking at purchasing a frame by frame scanner.

    My question is, which scanner will give the best finial result.
    The reflecta super 8+ (https://reflecta.de/en/products/detail/~id.853/reflecta-Super-8-and-Scanner.html)
    or
    The wolverine moviemaker pro (https://www.wolverinedata.com/products/MovieMaker_Pro)

    Any information and advice would be really appreciated

    There are several threads in the forums about film (8mm or super 8) scanners.

    For the Reflecta you can read a quite long topic at:

    https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/366069-The-Reflecta-Super8-film-scanner-to-avi-con...light=reflecta

    Or there is the Hammacher scanner at:

    https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/382653-Super-8-film-scanner-from-Hammacher-Schlemm...light=reflecta

    Or the Somikon at:

    https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/388575-Capturing-Super8-with-Somikon-Filmscanner-p...light=reflecta

    All, or most, of these work the same way and scan a single frame and compile a mp4 video from these.

    But there are other ways. to 'capture' film. I have had quite reasonable results from a Kaiser 'Mirror Box' that takes s projected film in one side and use a video camera in the other.

    There will be many topics on here about methods. The 'capture' sub-forum may well not be the best place to look since as far as the forum is concerned this is technically not capturing
