The quality of this unit is great. I've scanned over a thousand feet of super 8 film so far and all's well. I noticed early on that a couple of my films suffered from a jittering/jumping issue, but a second scan through fixed this. I have since spooled all my films back and forth a couple of times using my old cine film editor to 'loosen' the film a little, which seems to have solved it. The unit itself is solid, has vents on the back and barely gets warm during use.
It takes approx. 30 minutes to scan a 50ft (3min) reel of film, scanning at 2 frames a second. It saves the resulting mp4 file to an SD card inserted into the unit which you can instantly play back, either through the small lcd screen or to a tv/monitor connected to the back of the unit.
You can scan super 8 and normal 8mm film. Films are saved in mp4 format at a resolution of 1440x1080 at 30 frames per second. It's not quite 1080p but it's much better than some other similar units that only produce 960x720 resolution files. This is one of the main reasons I chose the Reflecta over one of the other brands.
You can adjust the exposure amount. I found the default '0' to be way too high and completely washed out bright areas of the image. '-1.5' seems to work best for me. You can also adjust the frame area (left, right, up, down, zoom in, out) which is fantastic meaning you can scan the entire film frame, even the sprocket holes if you wish!
The unit will only scan reels up to 200ft in size, so if you have any 400ft reels (like I do) you'll need to splice the film onto smaller reels. This is the only real downside to the unit and it's a pity they didn't add fold out spool arms.
The box claims you don't need a computer to scan and watch your films, which is true to a point but you will need a computer if you want to watch them at the correct speed. 30fps is way too fast for cine films as most home made super 8 film is shot at 18fps. Not only will you need to adjust the film speed, but other settings will need tweaking such as brightness, contrast, exposure etc, to get it just right. I've only done a little editing so far as I'm still in the process of scanning but even at this early stage the results are stunning!
If you have a stack of old cine films and don't want to pay out thousands to have them scanned I highly recommend this unit. It will take time and patience to get them all done, and you will need video editing software if you want them to look just right, but the resulting quality is fantastic. I can see detail in my films that I never noticed watching on a projector and being able to see the whole frame is a big plus as projectors crop the image considerably. 5 stars!
At 2 frames per sec it is a slow job, so I leave it chattering away in the office while doing other things. The MP4 files do need to be put through an editor to slow down the play back speed.
