Client Comments and Reviews

We love hearing about our client experiences, both good and letting us know where we can improve. Please read what some of our clients have said about us.


Very satisfied, but you have to be patient.

I had 1700 feet of old (1950 - 70's) 8mm and Super8 film digitized. Converted to both SD and HD formats onto a disk drive that I supplied, so files are quite large (20GB for 8" reel - 400'). But the higher resolution (than DVD using mpg2 compression) is better for my purpose of video editing. HD is 1920x1080, but of course the image is still the original 4 x 3 aspect ratio (which makes the picture part 1440 x 1080) so as expected there are black bars on either side -- but resolution is as good or better than the film (some sites estimate 8mm film resolution to be around 800 by 600).

It took about 7 weeks (they said 6 to 8 weeks), so be prepared to deal with that turn-around time.

But quality was supurb -- with the knowledge that filmstock does degrade/fade over the years. But the video files that they produced was what was on the film, and in fact is _better_ than what I'd seen before with a projector, because now the lighting is consistent and doesn't fade or blur towards the corners.

Thanks so much for the work done on my film transfer. The picture and color quality is top-notch. Thanks!

I saw my family films and video tapes degrading before my eyes.

I chose Legacy Digital because they looked to offer a superior service at a fair price. Boy, I'm glad that I did.

The team at Legacy Digital Productions not only converted our old family films to digital media, but they also returned the film reels to us in better condition than when they were provided to them. Some of our film was brittle and breaking. They actually reconditioned the film so I think the originals will last even longer. But we don't need them because the picture quality from the transfers are amazing. Thank you so much for helping persevere these precious memories.

I just got my latest film transfers back from Legacy Digital, and I had to say WOW. I am totally amazed.

I received some old 16mm films from my brother in law, that belonged to his Dad, and they were stored in the garage, some of them outside of a film can, some dusty and dirty. They are old WWII news reals, and other films. The edges were curing, and some of them smelled like vinegar, and I wasn't sure if they would be able to be transferred, so I called Scott at Legacy Digital to come take a look and see what he could do.

They had done a great job on my super 8 films, and so I thought I would give it a try. He looked at them and said that they should be able to copy them. When I got them back, I was totally amazed. They were very clean and clear, one even had sound, which was a surprise to me, and some of them were also in color from back in the 40s.

I am extremely happy with the work that was done, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. They come and pick up the files, and then deliver them, so you don't have to worry about them getting lost in the mail, and the quality is amazing. I requested 1080P frame by frame scans with a digital copy saved on an external hard disk.

Thanks again Legacy Digital.

I enjoyed my converstion with Carter today at the Carlsbad Village Faire.

I told him how pleased I was with your work for me on the 16mm film conversion and the slide conversion.

Any people passing by at the time I was near your booth, I extolled the excellence of your service. Any time I ever get the opportunity to do so, I always highly recommend your company.

It is always a pleasure to be able to honestly recommend products or services which I have found to be truly excellent.

My entire family wants to thank you for bringing the reel to reels back to life on DVD.

Although the tapes were old, the color and content were of the highest quality. Many family members lost photos in the California fires, so you can imagine the joy when they saw themselves on DVD.

I highly recommend your trustworthy service to anyone wanting to preserve memories from reel to reel tapes.

Darlene Bloodworth El Cajon, CA

Not only did you do a fabulous job, working with you made the whole process enjoyable. Picking up my films and also personally delivering them helped me feel safe about letting them out of my sight.

I was deeply touched. I consider these memories priceless.

Patti Rancho Mirage, CA

I just wanted to let you know how very pleased we were with your work in converting our old family films to DVD and for the added narration at our last visit. Everyone was very pleased with the results.

I was especially grateful for the "extra" mile you and your group went to to assure our discs were top notch. I'd be pleased to recommend you to anyone I come across for whom this kind of production work would be indicated.

All in all I'm pleased with the result and the professional treatment we got while at your studio. Thanks to all who we re-involved. Feel free to quote me.

Curt McCarty San Diego, CA

This is long overdue... I just have to say "Thank You" Carter and the team at Legacy. My mother passed last year and I had about 5,000 feet of 8mm film. I've dabbled in video and then multimedia myself since High School and figured I'd get to it someday. Well, when my mom passed it was time to get after it.

Rather than tackle the job myself I entrusted the folks at Legacy to handle some cherished film that was 50+ years old. It was a little of a rush job, but Carter worked on it and had it ready for me sooner then promised. It was all on a external drive I purchased (at his recommendation) and my boxes of film were returned to me, spliced, labeled and in excellent condition.

The digitized files exceeded my greatest expectations. The end result is better than the original film itself. HD, color corrected, no flicker and perfect frame rates. I cannot say enough about how great my experience was with Legacy. I highly recommend their services to anyone considering film conversion. Absolutely fantastic!

Thank you again Carter.

My Grandparents had 8mm films that I had transfered to dvd.

Scott came to my home and explained in detail the process. When completed, he actually came to my job to deliver.

I was surprised what a great job they did. So after some tears and laughs seeing 50 years of film, I have something to share with my children and grandchildren.

I would and have reccomended to everyone, worth every penny.

Valerie B. Lomita, CA

Legacy Digital did a fabulous job of getting our old family films and slides on dvd for my parents' anniversary.

The quality was amazing and my parents were so surprised. Scott was so helpful picking up and delivering our order saving us time and gas money and keeping our family treasures safe from the mail.

I definitely would recommend them to anyone and in fact am calling them again to do all of our vhs tapes and camcorder tapes next.
