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)
• 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:
Or there is the Hammacher scanner at:
Or the Somikon at:
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
