Retro – 8 Scanning System

We’re happy to announce that Studio 300 acquired the Retro-8 film scanning system that let’s you scan and convert your regular 8mm & Super 8 film (home movies!) to digital movie files.  The system is quite slick and the results will put a smile on your face. The image quality is simply amazing. The Retro-8 has several adjustments for color, exposure, and grain removal to help bring your movies back to life.

Finished scans are in the MOV format so they will play on any computer. You can upload and share finished files on a site like YouTube and/or transfer it to DVD, too.

Have a box of old movies? Stop by Studio 300 and we’ll help you get started converting and preserving all of those old memories.

Here’s the latest episode of 300 Seconds in Studio 300 with Jeffrey and Joe discussing our film scanner. Got five minutes? Click play and listen in.

Time for Reflection

Reflector-SurfacesHave you ever taken a picture or a video and it came out a bit dark? Here’s a little trick. A light reflector can vastly improve your images.  Reflecting light can reduce shadows and lighten other dark areas. These reflectors come in many different sizes and colors (to help match different lighting conditions and skin tones).  They are very light, fold into a small package, and are far easier to use than hauling a big, heavy light kit around.

reflector with and withoutToo much light coming from behind your subject? See the example picture to the left. Use a white reflector to bounce some sunlight back into your subject and produce a nice soft fill. A gold reflector can provide a warm light fill, too.

Studio 300 has reflectors available for check out.  Stop by and we’ll show you how easy they are to use.
