When 8mm film first hit the consumer market around 1932, capturing family memories on film became a more practical and economical process.
8mm film, also known as regular 8 film or standard 8 film, served as a less expensive, more streamlined version of the previously used 16mm film.
It was usually shot at 16 frames per second, allowing a recording time of
4 minutes and 10 second per film reel.
Since 8mm film has such a long history, it is likely that there are many 8mm film reels as part of your family legacy. Maybe there's a hidden box in your garage or your parent's attic. Or maybe you know exactly where all the old family movies are located but you don't know what to do with them.
Who knows what wonderful trove of lost memories these reels may contain - your mother's wedding, your sister's 1st communion, your first steps?
