More About Revive & Restore

Utilising the latest scanning technology and equipment we can change your photos, slides and negatives to digital images for you to share and use on our fantastic photo products. Even if your photo is damaged our restoration wizards can digitally restore your image back to its former glory and even turn those old black and white photos to colour!

We can also transfer your video tapes to DVD, convert your old cine films to the modern day and even turn your old music cassette tapes into CD’s! Now the whole family can enjoy those precious camcorder tape memories together before the footage is lost forever.


Video & Camcorder Tape Transfer - £25 per tape 

Imagine: All your old home movies shot on video or camcorder tape digitised and transferred expertly to DVD for you to relive again and again!

Each tape is returned with a DVD copy containing everything from the original tape. You can order additional copies or add a USB. We can even add titles (eg “Ben’s 8th Birthday”) and background music. These copies are fully editable, so you can make your own movies at home. Fun!

Your film reels will be processed together on one DVD, however if you would like them processing in a specific order or would like a separate DVD per reel simply let us know! You can order additional copies or add a USB.

Many cine cameras didn’t have a sound recording function, if you don’t want to watch your memories in silence, we can add background music appropriate to the image content and add a title at the start.

We accept the following cine reel formats: Standard 8mm, Super 8mm, 9.5mm, 16mm & Polavision Cine Cassettes all with or without sound.


Please note: If your cine film is still in its camera or in a square black box and not on a reel, then it is very likely that your film reel hasn’t been developed. Please develop your film reel first and then bring your developed reel to us to digitise for you. We do not accept audio or magnetic reel-2-reel reels. Cine film reels are charged per 50ft of film.
