Q: I'm local, may I come to drop off and pick up my originals?
A: Yes, please make sure you contact us and make an appointment before you come.  The driving directions can be found from our

Q. Why should I trust the quality of your service on cinefilm (8mm/16mm) conversion when there are so many service providers as yours?
A. At Canaan we use the best State-of-the-Art equipment to fulfill your cinefilm conversion project, One way to check our
quality is to send us one or two small reels for testing. THIS IS A FREE SERVICE.  You can also check out our customer's testimonials and see how  others talk about our quality and service.

Q. I don't know what's on the 8mm/16mm film reels or what order they should  be done in, can they be edited?
A. In this case, we'll first send you the original archiving AVI file set (every reel will have its own AVI file) for
reviewing.  You can then decide what order they should appear on the final DVD, tell us the order and we'll make the final
DVD for you. There is a 20% charge for the AVI file set.

Q. How do I know the total cost of my order.

A. By filling out our online order form, you will see the total cost; there is no hidden charge.    Please note: Some optional features such as extra duplicate set, Hollywood Design DVD/CD case are not reflected  in the total cost.  New Jersey customers also need to add up 7% tax charge.

Q. I've heard that the films flicker when they are transferred to video, is this true?
A. No.  Flicker may occur when attempting to transfer a cinefilm with a consumer level camcorder and old projector. Our
process is flicker-free for any type of cinefilms.

Q. Will we get our originals back?
A. Yes they will be returned in better (we do minor cleaning) or same condition as we receive them.

Q. How should I make the payment to you if I don't know the length of the film
A. You only need to pay us the minimum now when shipping the package.  Our technicians will find out the exact length of your originals
and we'll send you the invoice after we finish capturing the footage.

Q. Can my cinefilms be transferred to other formats?
A. Yes we can transfer to almost any tape to any digital format.  If you want to edit and burn your own DVDs, the common
digital formats are raw AVI format or Mpeg-2 format. The AVI format has the best quality (uncompressed) but the file size is
huge ( 1 minute equals to about 173 Mb), you might need to provide us your own portable Hard disc to hold the file. The
Mpeg-2 format file has relatively smaller size and usually can be held by a regular DVD disc.

Please note: the mpeg-2 and AVI files can be watched only from your PC and very few of the DVD players; a regular DVD can be
played from your regular DVD player.
Q. How about the return postage?
A. We have a fixed $6.99 shipping/handling charge per order - no matter how big the order is. The package is shipped by
Media Mail service with Delivery Confirmation.

Q. I want my cine films transferred as next day service. Is this possible?
A. We can arrange this although there is an extra cost. Please contact us for our express service rates.

Q. Can I  edit my cinefilms once you have created the DVD / Video tape?
A. Yes we can transfer your footage into AVI file format.  Then you can import the file into your own video editing software and burn
your own DVD.

Q. I have some footage that is not developed, do you do this too?
A. No, sorry we don't provide this kind of service at this moment.

Q. How do I pay for your transferring service?
A. You pay us by check or money order, payable to "Canaan".


"......You did a beautiful job on the set you sent me. This is a perfect format for my purposes. I am going to send you another set of 48 cassettes now. ..... One of my colleagues at the University of Texas, Barbara Davis, has a big collection of DAT tapes, that we would like to convert to WAVE format and put on DVD-ROM, as you did for the big collection of  cassettes at the end of last year. ......"

--Dr.Brian MacWhinney        Carnegie Mellon University

"I received the package with the DVD's and my 45 original cassettes. I already reviewed 2 DVD's and they came out very good. It will take me some time to review the rest
I would like to thank you and your staff for the professional work you did. Special thanks to Kathy for her excellent follow up and communications. "
