Just learning about video. I'm an old-school film photog from the 70's and knew nothing about digital until I made the transition from film to digital. Now have to learn all about video, film transfers, etc. I got a few 16mm films in my Archive scanned commercially, but it was very $$. About $160 for a small reel. I tried a Wolverine 8mm scanner, but the output is very poor IQ. Here is what the 8mm Wolverine produces. A 8mm girly film from the beatnik era. NSFW Here is a Retroscan 2K 16mm scan of a home movie...1939 BW and ancient Kodachrome. (Back then 16mm Kodachrome was ASA 10.) Here is a commercial 2K 16mm scan of a commercial film. If I hit the lotto I will buy a Lasergraphics scanner...the set up fee alone is $7,500. (But I will also have to buy a house or office for the scanner.) Until the lotto cooperates...I got half a million feet of small gauge film in my archive to scan...with the Retroscan.
