I have come into possession of 7 reels of 9.5mm cine film taken during the 1950s in Shetland and would like to have them converted to digital format.

 

Can anyone here recommend a company that carries out these conversions? I know that the Camera Centre offers this service but they just send them on to some company south.

I'm sure the museum would be interested in your films. Maurice Smith in Sandwick may be able to help, Cumliewick Media, in the phone book.

Yes, the Archives - good idea!

 

Speaking of the Archives, the Photo Library used to let you view larger versions of the images - not huge, but large enough to see how good the image was. When did that change, and why?? I certainly wouldn't buy a print off the archives without getting a better look at the image first.

It's been like for a few years now I think. It was probably too easy to download them for free, hence the change.

Or possibly too easy to charge you for them, hence the change.
