1,500 feet of 8mm or 16mm film is ~ 1 TB. Your total feet / 1,500 = your total storage. If you don’t keep the photographs but keep just the videos and condition reports, divide your total storage again by ~ 90 because most of the storage is photographs.
If you don’t know your total feet, an easy-to-install self-contained tabletop NAS offers an inexpensive way to store all you need on standard removable hard drives. You can also connect by ethernet to your existing networked storage.
Our products always include USB ports for immediate access to your videos and condition reports from the machine’s desktop.

8mm, 16mm, 35mm and more?
The EZ16 digitizes 8mm and 16mm film. We’re working on other models!
Photography is a complex art. EasyReel’s AI helps a lot! Cameras available in 5MP and 24MP. Camera settings and motor control are automated for the best possible photography of your films in your environment.
We’re working on what will be the best image quality for film ever made: Multispectral. Contact us if you’d like to get involved in this FILMIC project!
What extras do I need?
FILMIC products are all self-contained. All you provide are peripherals: a TV (or monitor with speakers and/or headphones) and a sturdy desk, cart or table.
We want mass digitization to be an option for all collections that could benefit. If you are interested in a rental, please let us know!
