Cine Film FAQs

We’ve made life easy for you by compiling the the most commonly asked questions that we’ve been asked over the years in one place!

How can I view my films?
Could not be easier! Either plug a simple USB into your TV and view as a slideshow or watch on PC, laptop, ipad or mobile phone. 

Is it easy to share with my family?
It’s so easy. Just forward the link we’ll send you or share your USB memory stick.

Which media output is best?
Digital files are easy to play and share on PCs, laptops, ipads and phones. Start your own home movie editing projects too. A back-up DVD also makes sense. 

No Upfront Payment? – When do I pay?
We never charge upfront unlike other companies. Why? Because there’s always a small chance that you may have non-chargeable blank reels.   

How long does it take?
Typically 5-10 working days or less. 

Do you offer an advanced service?
Yes. It delivers more vivid colours, better contrast, sharper pictures and image stabilisation. It takes longer but and costs relatively little more.

Do you offer Pro Wetgate Solution for Dust and Scratches?
Yes – We are rare in the industry since we also offer this service. When a scratch or vertical line in the film emulsion is filled with fluid, light will travel through the film with less refraction which results in less visibility of the damaged parts.

The technology to convert cine film as faithfully as today just did not exist a decade ago!  If unsure customers should carry out a single reel test.
