Why it’s important to clean Super8 film (2019)

Super8 Cine Film picks up a lot of dust and can suffer from mould and staining which occurs over time. It’s also common to find Super8 film has been projected in a room where people are smoking, which results in the film getting coated with smoke which makes the picture dingy and discoloured.

For this reason it’s really important to thoroughly clean the film prior to digitising it.

In this example we’ve run a piece of film through our scanner without any cleaning.
We’ve then put it through our cleaning machine, then run it again.

The difference is very clear…
