Home Price List FAQs


Are there any copyright issues I should know about?
If the footage you want to copy/convert is commercially produced, legally we may only produce one copy for you (for your own personal viewing.)

If we would like to use any of your imagery for our own marketing, we will request this of you at the time and will need to obtain written permission to do so.

How many hours of footage can you fit onto a DVD?
We can fit a maximum of between 120-140 minutes (around two hours) of footage on each DVD.

How do I know how long my cine-film footage is? And what type of film is it?
Generally, there are three sizes of reel;

3″ reel runs for about 4 minutes
5″ reel for 15 minutes
7″ reel will hold 30 minutes.
We only process 8mm & Super8 film, so make sure you don’t have 9.5mm or 16mm first. (To check, simply measure the depth of your film)

What can you transfer?
Almost anything….VHS, VHSC (PAL & NTSC), BetaMax, Video8, Hi-8, MiniDVD, MiniDV, Cinefilm (Super8 & Standard 8mm), Slides and Photos.

Can I post my films to you?
Yes, However, we would always recommend that you use registered post and we’ll do the same when returning your originals to you by post. The address is: Cottenham Video, 2 The Wrens, Cottenham, CB24 8XD.
