A Few of our Testimonials

I wanted to thank you again for the extremely fast service you provided in transferring my 18 rolls of old family 8mm video film to dvd. I have viewed the dvd and the quality is really great. The content of these videos range from when I was a little over 2 years old in 1957 to about 1972. Many memories of childhood events very quickly surfaced as I watched the DVD. Things like this are priceless but yet you do exceptional quality work at a very reasonable price. I would not hesitate for one second to recommend your service to anyone who was in need of it. I am certain you also do exceptional quality work regarding the many other services you offer your customers.

I wanted to compliment the work you did with our parent’s family movies and slides.

It is so wonderful to have them on DVD and preserved.
You did such a great job that both Debbie and I were brought to tears just watching some of the old family footage.
We can’t wait to have our parents see them next week.  We have no doubt it will bring back memories from nearly 60 years ago for them.
Donna C., Chicago, IL

Hello. Maybe you hear this a lot but I wanted you to know that the project you did for my in laws 50th was a TREMENDOUS hit. It played continously during a formal dinner and many people commented on it. It really made the event extra special.
Thanks for all the help.
Kurt L., Willow Springs, IL

Thank you for such a wonderful job on the two DVD's you made for my friend and I last week.
We just viewed his DVD and it was very impressive - he is 54 and this started out when he was about 4 years old, what neat memories.
Patty,  Naperville, IL

We just wanted to send you this email to tell you guys that the film transfers to DVD were absolutely beautiful. Adding the music was a great special touch to my Dad.
Mom just couldn’t stop crying! Your work was wonderful! Thanks again!
P.S. … we will spread the good word about the Retired Film Guys.

1. Broadcast quality high-definition imaging  1080 resolution using "cool light led" for transfers, providing best possible visual and color. Direct High-Definition Imaging
with our Venus FHD-7 Live MOS
Micro Four Thirds Sensors
is a superior replacement for all transfer systems.

2. Exclusive technology enables the film to be transferred at very close to the same speed as it was filmed, with no trace of flicker, fixed grain pattern, hot center and dark corners, or other image artifacts.          8mm 16mm super8 film transferred silent  exactly at the correct FPS (frames per second) accurate crystal controlled rates.

3. We splice repair, hand clean, lubricate film including transfer at .10 per foot.

4. A digital footage counter on every machine for accurate no-guesswork charges.  NO HIDDEN CHARGES!

5. Frame by frame scanning in real time for most formats eliminates slow and expensive computer-dependent transfer by hobbyist-grade equipment, that others “spin” into a feature instead of a deficiency.

6. HDMI 1080 output High-Definition to HD Blu-Ray or standard-definition DVD option.

 Simply, the DVD is $5, HD Blu-Ray is $10.

If you desire files only for your supplied external hard drive, then the cost for the files are $1 per GB + $1 per file.

DV-AVI type-2 for Standard Definition or
HDV/AVCHD for 1080 High Definition.
