    Old cine film 1st Mar 19 at 5:15 PM
    The other day I came across an old cine film in a long forgotten box. Ultimately I would like to get it transferred onto DVD which is possible. But I was wondering if there is an easy way to view the film now to get an idea as to whats on it. I have no idea what could be on it or where it came from so worried its contents could be dodgy So some way of easily viewing it would be useful. Any ideas?
    I started out with nothing......And still have most of it left

    You need a viewer - maybe pick something up here? https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR1.T RC0.A0.H0.X8mm+film+viewer.TRS0&_nkw=8mm+film+view er&_sacat=0

    Yes something like this would do but dear enough for what I need. Was hoping for a home made idea costing zero, just to even view one frame and see if it was something I recognised before getting it converted

    Did you get sorted with this ?

    I had my mum & dads 60yr old wedding film put on to DVD by a guy in Comber about 2 years ago...He is a really lovely guy and I imagine he'd probably be able to let you know what is on the film before you decide if you'd like to have it put on to a DVD....let me know if you'd like his contact details...and unfortunately, I cant remember how much he charged

    This might be a long shot so aplogies if if it doesn't work.
    Have you looked to see if there is a local photography club who might have the kit to process a frame for you.
    Or they might have details of people who could advise.

    No, never got it sorted. Forgot about it to be honest. But would still be keen to get it checked out. Viewing devices are too dear to buy for one off use. PM me the details of the guy in comber if you dont mind. Thanks
