French company Pathé Frères introduced the 9.5mm film format in the 20s, hoping to establish an affordable vehicle to distribute copies of commercially produced films intended for at-home viewing.

The system, which included a line of projectors and cameras were developed and sold under the Pathescope brand name. The format found success reproducing several notable films including entries from the Mickey Mouse series, and select works of Alfred Hitchock.

Uniquely designed with perforations that run centered, between frames, along the length of the film, the 9.5 mm offered superior image area (comparable to the 16 mm) to the 8mm film, which featured sprocket holes positioned along the edge of the available space.

Despite it’s technical superiority over the 8mm, the format would eventually succumb to the Kodachrome’s 8mm, which offered an economically advantageous, lower cost, development process, and was favoured by commercial sponsors.

FILM REELS TRANSFERRED TO DIGITAL: MPEG4, MOV, DVD and BLU-RAY. 


Our technology and process provides for a true frame-by-frame digital capture of your film with the option for a "Standard Definition" OR "High Definition (2K)" scan best suited for today's HD-large screen TV's. The price to convert 8mm / Super8 / 16mm film to a unique DIGITAL FILE (one per reel) or DVD (chaptered) is based on a per reel / per linear foot of film basis which is prorated to reflect the actual amount of film we process – you only pay for what you get back.

Our Standard Grade process provides for a RAW transfer of the film to either Standard Definition MPEG4 digital file or DVD.

Our Archival Grade process provides for full “digital clean up” of the footage adjusting for contrast, light and grain as well colour-correction to either a (1) Standard Definition MPEG4 digital file or DVD or (2) a High Definition MPEG4 (HD) or an uncompressed .MOV digital file.

Turn around time is 10 - 15 business days and once complete we will contact you to coordinate pick-up/ return. We do offer a RUSH SERVICE with 24 – 72 hour turn around guaranteed – the rush fee is 25% the value of the order.
